20. This reminds me of a comment my grandson made a couple of years ago...

during the Michael Brown murder. He had over heard us talking a lot about this. He was about 5 at the time. One day he said "Oh, I get it, the brown people are the black people and the tan people are the white people". I wonder if up to that point he was wondering when he was going to see these white and black people everyone was referring to.


On another note: I know it is a favorite term for racists and bigots to call folks "apes" as an insult. As someone who enjoys learning about evolution, this drives me insane. We are ALL apes. I would like to reclaim that to make it not as an insult. We ALL share a common ancestor. In fact, it seems to me that white people are mutants. When someone tries to use this as an insult, it not only shows their hatred for others but also a major ignorance of science.

I think once we saw the photo of the earth taken from space all of this BS about others being inferior or superior should have went right out the window!
