69. Outmoded thinking
I must say your mindset is stuck in the 50's. Its not about race anymore, indeed, the very concept is becoming irrelevant because of the intermarriage you mention. The ruling elite doesn't give a shit about the color of your skin, what they care about is what you believe. If you believe in the status quo then you are welcome, if you want to see revolutionary change you are not. Do white people fear Tiger Woods? Michael Jordan? Colin Powell? JC Watts? No. They don't fear these people because these people have embraced the status quo and become part of it.

Its not about what race you are, its about the ideas that you hold.
