69. No -- I'm emphasizing that describing people by COLOR doesn't work . . .especially
re "whites" --

If you're "white" check you skin against a sheet of white paper . . .

Whatever color you are now, it was original to beginnings in Africa.

And -- we should also stop referring to AA as "black." I don't see it here much --

but I think the NY Times continues to do it?
