Subject: Children of "mixed race"

The idea of "racial purity" is a lie that the Nazis
used a lot. However, apparently the predominant culture
persists in trying to classify people by the so-called
"racial characteristics." Since no one is NOT mixed race,
it's just a matter of degree... There are many sub-cultures,
and many people continue to face discrimination because they
are darker or whatever (have XX chromosomes?).
Good luck with the study. Being as I am an American
with some ancestors from Europe and some who were here long
before they arrived, I have never been able to identify wholly
with one racial group. Thank God!
