Most of us have consciences, happywarrior, but they are not foolproof. One's conscience is not concrete, nor even static. It's basically our own individual, inner sense of what we perceive to be...

Because the original god-figure is supposed to be omnipotent, literally possessing all the power there is to be possessed. What could possibly threaten such an entity?

Of course, that raises the...

I think it will always be with us in some form or fashion because, even with so-called miscegenation, we'll never all be the same complexion. Look at any mixed-race family and you'll see the vast...

I would argue that that is precisely what makes your view more "enlightened." Not perfect, mind you, just better informed due to a less rigid and turbulent history on the issue of race. I noticed the...

I remember Roberto Clemente from when I was a kid. He was always Puerto Rican to me, but how could I deny his African heritage when it was staring me in the face?

I know, Eva. I agree that Puerto Ricans and some other Caribbeans, Central and South Americans have a much more enlightened view of "race" than we mainland U.S. of A-isians do.

In general, we...

Perhaps, you're right, Mog.

I actually like happy; he seems so, um, happy. A warrior for happiness as opposed to one who is happy to be at war, maybe? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.
