Pestilence: white man (European)
Death: blackman (African)
Famine: Yellowman (Asian)
War: Redman (North American Indian/Aboriginal)
Any comments or is this just weird?

Oh, but wait! History its self has talked about them:
The four horsemen aren't signs of what's to come. They come with the first 4 seals; when they come, it's already begun. All 4 of them are closely interrelated, as well. With a world wide war along the lines we've never imagined, Famine would ensue. This would cause worse and worse health along with the inability to extract medicines from plants desperatly needed for food, hence Pestilence. Through all 3 of these, Death comes en masse. Add nukes to it, and all 4 happen at the same time.
Do you get what I'm trying to say here?
Gnostic Kabbalah and Tarot in the Apocalypse of St. John.
A quote from the author:
"We have studied the verses of the book of Revelation (Apocalypse) in the Superior Worlds. We give the result of our investigations in this book.
Much has been said and written about the Apocalypse. However, only intellectual speculations have been made and the words of various authorities have been repeated.
The present work is the result of tremendous esoteric investigations that were patiently performed by us in the Superior Worlds.
We have found the Apocalypse to be divided into three parts: the first we have entitled "The Son of Man," the second "The Sealed Book" and the third "The New Jerusalem."
The first part teaches the Path of the Razor's Edge.
The second is related with the times of the end.
The third tells us of the future earth.
This is a book of practical christification. This is a book of transcendental esoterism and it is absolutely practical.
We do not theorize in this book. This work is one hundred percent practical.
Many students long for their christification, but they do not know where to begin. They do not know the code, the secret.
In this book we give away to every student the code, the secret, the key. Here you have the key, you who thirst, lovers of the Truth. Now let us practice."

i guess its debatable but i was taught 3 in college. reason being redskins came from mongloid decent and latinos came from indian/spanish/negro blood. if we count indan as asian decent that makes 3 races .
however after i researched it i found several defintions of race. under some definitions (the newer ones) the indians are indeed their own race because of the amount of time they have been around.
so i stand corrected.
