Exactly my point. All this started when certain physical features were
declared "Celtic" and it is only the label that got on my tits. It is far
too subject to racist stereotypes to pass uncommented. >>
How does discussing possible physical attributes or characteristics in common
with a group of people can be viewed as racist discussion? Sounds like some
on this list are making a quantum leap into a realm no one as mentioned
Except you and one other person). Discussing and observing diffeence of
characteristics of other groups is NOT racist, it's when you hate someone for
being different you cross over the line to racism.
