You make excellent points about race in the US and elsewhere. We should all remember that in the early part of the 20th century Italians, Irish, Greeks, Polish, Iberians, not to mention the Slavs, many people of which descent now participate happily in white supremacism, had been “scientifically proven” and generally accepted as being non white and inferior.

For that matter I had a paternal uncle (still alive but I disowned him), born and raised in India, who started claiming (to us, his effing family!) that he was “Caucasian” after having lived a few years in the US South, to the extent of adding that my rather dark grandfather was not really his father.

I stop to miau to cats.
