A few years ago I read a paper in which the author argued that if one can trace your genealogy in America more than 3 (or 4?) generations one almost certainly has an ancestor whose race differs from whatever race one claims.
Interestingly, in the state of Louisiana if you are 1/32 black then you are legally black. It 's a hold-over from 18th century law. Do you think it is racist?
It was challenged in court and the determination was upheld. Without doing an Internet search, can you guess the race of the complainant? Can you guess who filed an amicus curie brief in support of the law?
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
