    Don't know what you mean. The last part of the test started out associating good words with whites, then it switched to associating good words with blacks. Obviously, if you start an association between good words and whites, the brain will be programmed to respond in that fashion and will have more difficulty associating good words with blacks. This test is a trick to convince you that you prefer whites.

    Ah, so you had no difficulty in the first part, but found yourself hesitating in the second?

    But you just said that no one has a real homeland. Who can own anything? And what if the resident population's assimilation corresponds to second-class citizen status?

    You seem to think I was arguing against the 30 year homeland. I wasn't. This is a topic on racism and I merely pointed out that genetically we all arise from Africa. Staying 30 years in a place does not endow ancestry from that place.

    But if there's no connection between our genes and the land we live on what meaning can Africa have for us?

    Are you saying our genes were somehow created by the continent of Africa?

    I'm saying if you must ascribe ancestry through genes, you gotta begin at the beginning.
