Race is a superstition. The fact is, the species cannot be divided upon such blurry lines.
Yes, it is blurry lines. I am very considerate of people who do hold onto some notion of a racial identity. It is not a good idea to rush people along into that uncertainty of universality. It is a huge step and the MSM will do no favors if they bully us all into accepting their T&Cs about race. In many ways it is they who are stirring up the trouble of late. It creates an unpleasant backlash and people feel very insecure.
I value Hillbilly music very highly. It is culturally rich and has its own wonderful identity and roots in the past of the Old West. I hope the U.S does not forget its settler period. It will be just a period, just the early part of an emerging nation. Every nation has been through the bloodbaths of struggle unfortunately.
I don't want to be limited by the definitions. I'm a bit raceless really. I will not accept the white definition. I refuse it. It has no meaning. I think the term has been forced on people. You don't have to accept it. We are all really children of the universe on this rock in space.
