The official terminology is mixed heritage. Both Barry and Lewis should be asked what they see themselves as before labels are applied. There is a new film openning soon called Skin (I think.) It is about a black girl who has two white parents. They are living in South Africa during appartied. The white parents obviously see her as white but the Africa government see her as black. She has to go to a government office where they do tests on her such as, seeing if a pencil will stay in her curly hair, to see if she is black or white. I think it will show just how stupid labelling people is in the first place.

According to the Out of Africa Model, developed by Chris Stringer and Peter Andrews, modern H. sapiens evolved in Africa 200,000 years ago. Homo sapiens began migrating from Africa between 70,000 – 50,000 years ago and would eventually replace existing hominid species in Europe and Asia. The Out of Africa Model has gained support by recent research using mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). After analysing genealogy trees constructed using 133 types of mtDNA, they concluded that all were descended from a woman from Africa, dubbed Mitochondrial Eve.
The last statement was the only racist thing on this thread. I assume it was in jest,
So you would call a black man a nigger then?
But that illustrates my point about PC. How can it be OK for person A to use a particular word but not person B? That is saying that the word itself is not inherently offensive, but that it can be offensive or not depending on who uses it. Isn't that showing up the very differences that PC is supposed to play down?
What are noggers?

I would not want to be French because of their horrendous beaurocracy ...Does that make me racist or 'nationalist' whatever that is?
This is one of the most depressing threads I have seen in a long time - we are all just human beings and this should be all that we see in each other.
Paul if you would like some more French bashing info ....most French people admit to eating whilst on the toilet!!!!!! YUK!
