Assuming we can save our species from extinction, wouldn't it be nice
if all races interbred and everyone is a lovely light brown skin tone.
At least we wouldn't have pigmentation to argue about. Hey, it's just
a little fantasy I have about the future and hoping there is one.

Can't see the plug-in for some reason. Damn!

Oh, it's happening in lots of places, but not fast enough. CA is just an
on-going experiment. I meant ALL races and ethnic groups inter-mixed,
not just African-Americans, people of Spanish extraction and Caucasians.
