    I wish people would stop making assumptions. Just because you see me leaving the house Saturday mornings wearing my New Balance shoes and North Face jacket doesn't mean I'm on my way to the farmer's market. Sometimes I go somewhere else.

    The concept of race most of us adopt as a social reality began here:

    The term "Caucasian race" was coined by the German philosopher Christoph Meiners in his The Outline of History of Mankind (1785). Meiners' term was given wider circulation in the 1790s by Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, a German professor of medicine and member of the British Royal Society, who is considered one of the founders of the discipline of anthropology.[5]

    The Georgian skull Blumenbach discovered in 1795, which he used to hypothesize origination of Europeans from the Caucasus.
    Meiners' treatise was widely read in the German intellectual circles of its day, despite muted criticism of its scholarship. Meiners proposed a taxonomy of human beings which involved only two races (Rassen): Caucasians and Mongolians. He considered Caucasians to be more physically attractive than Mongolians, notably because they had paler skin; Caucasians were also more sensitive and more morally virtuous than Mongolians. Later he would make similar distinctions within the Caucasian group, concluding that the Germans were the most attractive and virtuous people on earth. The name "Caucasian" derived from the Southern Caucasus region (or what is now the countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia), because he considered the people of this region to be the archetype for the grouping….

    ….In his earlier racial typology, Meiners put forth that Caucasians had the "whitest, most blooming and most delicate skin".[7] Europeans with darker skin he considered "dirty whites", admixed with Mongolian...

    Those Germans, always with their bright ideas. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I went to a dinner party once where the hostess served daube de beouf with... pinot grigio. It still makes My heart race when I think of it.

    Everyone was quiet thru dessert.

    But We all knew...

    No one ever saw her again after that night.

    Oh no, don't do that. The next time they will seat you in the back near the kitchen and the wait staff will ignore you.

    I could probably post more on this and maybe I will later when I've had time to clear my mind and give this subject some more thought.

    It is fine for you to write that, or even think that iceblink because as history has proven in the years, before during and/or even after, so much as to say the way you have phrased here for the majority of gay men who value looks as money, because when pressed it is often said that in the mind a thought is formed as a result of sleep deprivation and salami that swims in a river with a windmill and many rose gardens, in the past we see lasagna hanging from the ceiling but in the driveway there is still a moon.
