Some of the astonishing ignorance I've run into during a variety of political and religious debates on this forum have left me feeling as if there are lots of forum members with little or no contact of a race outside their own ...

I decided to ask this politically incorrect question ... please note that I do not intend to imply a direct correlation between race and ignorance ... but simply to provide an explanation for the feeling of racial isolation that I occasionally get when I make cross-cultural references ...

For the purposes of this poll ... I've lumped Hispanic and Caucasian together as white ... that's probably innacurate ... please accept my apologies if that is indeed the case ....

Cheers!

I'm as white as a baby's buttocks (caucasian baby, not a baby of african decent BTW).

I ussualy wear something to protect me from the sun, so I don't get a tan, ussualy a pillow-cover, with just the eyes cut out for seeing.

I am a C**t too I guess

What is all this C**t talk? Say it loud, I'm Celt and proud!

Well, not me. Just Saxon, I guess? I don't know. White, though not in this time of the year.

Caucasian, but I fail to see what this has to do with your statement "as if there are lots of forum members with little or no contact of a race outside their own ... "

I may be Caucasian, but my wife is Chinese, and I have ample work experience with Chinese, Burmese, Indians, Koreans and Malays in addition to other ang moh.

Another Celt here (Liverpool born and not black or Chinese, work it out for yourself)>

When I'm indoors I'm white.

When I'm cold I'm blue.

When I'm embarassed I'm red.

When I'm seasick I'm green.

When I've been out in the sun I'm light brown.

For this reason, I avoid referring to people from other parts of the world as 'coloured'.

As Captain Beefheart once observed, everybody's coloured. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to see them.
