1. Years ago I had an employee from South India

and he was much darker than the "black" folks around. He was not eligible for affirmative action though. I kept thinking about ML King's phrase "the color of your skin". It wasn't. Lots of pictures of Barack Obama and John Boehner under the same light show very little difference in their skin color.
