Back when I took a course in population genetics the prof argued that if your family has been in the USA more than 4 generations (IIRC) there was a 95% probability that you are mixed race. If in the southern USA, another generation brought you 95% chance of being B-W. Since my Dad's side has been here since the 1720's and all of that time in SC, TN, & TX it explains why I have an unnatural fascination with watermelon, fried chicken, and BBQ ... though I dance like George W Bush.

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 that’s what I intend to reverse.
