32. I don't know if the whole post is sarcasm, or just the last statement...
I do find this "debate" if you could call it that, rather silly, but I just wanted to point out this:

All descendants of slaves are black.

Uhm, just one little quibble about this, but there are plenty of people who look like WASPs that are also descended from slaves in America. There has been a lot of time between now and then, and plenty of descendants of slaves "passed for white" and married into white families. Fast forward 150 years or so, any any outward physical characteristics that are stereotypical to African Americans may no longer be present.

I'm not saying they suffer from the same legacy of discrimination or the legacy of slavery, just that to take the quote above as a statement of fact is incorrect.
