It's not my intention to offend anyone or start a race war, but the recent Cumberbatch incident raises an interesting philosophical question.

This Cumberbatch situation was ridiculous. People should concentrate on real actual cases of racism rather than using some slightly outdated words.

Ever heard of the idea of divide and conquer? As long as the wealthy can hire agitators to push people into racism, we are divided, and they are conquering us. Isn't it time to stop the race nonsense, and unite for the common cause of humanity? The way to do it is for each of us to individually become his/her own race. Once that is done, even the wealthy won't matter, because we will all be united as individuals.

Lot of great people tried to convey that message for centuries, but unfortunately nobody is interested in listening because we're all caught up in our own little worlds filled with struggles and suffering.

Actually, I have been thanked by people for showing them the websites listed in https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=939782.msg10310048#msg10310048. Of course, the post itself just went up today. But I have been showing the info and the links in the websites for some time now, in other ways and sites.

Its just semantics. Obviously color is color unless you are literally invisible, so yeah everyone is of color.

Typically "people of color" refers to people with black skin, but why is this? Aren't brown, red and yellow colors too? Black is actually the absence of color, while white is the presence of all colors. If so, then the term "people of color" is really most accurately applicable to white people and/or pretty much everyone except for black people. Perhaps it's time we corrected this historical mistake and started calling black people 'non-colored' and everyone else 'colored'. This would actually be a terrible idea, since it would once again ostracize black people.

Anyway, I wasn't actually going anywhere with this. Just food for thought.

Maybe it's more like paint than light?

The whole concept of race and racism is utterly moronic, speaking as an artist who is actually having to study skin tones etc. I can assure you 'white' people are not white and 'black' people are not black. Never mind the fact that single culturilism is dead and if you actually did DNA tests on all the people ranting about race constantly I guarantee you that 'white' people are going to have some variation of DNA in them that isn't what they think and the same goes for 'blacks' that hate anybody who isn't them.

Oh, just so we're clear, whites are actually extremely pale shades of pink or orange etc. and 'blacks' are extremely dark shades of brown.

so what colour are asians ? Cheesy

Asia is a massive continent so it depends what area you're talking about. Many people in southern India look as dark as Africans. Northern Indians and East Asians tend to be more pale. Green eyes are common in Pakistan. Assad has blue eyes and white skin, etc. There is a lot of variation.

It's some of these silly semantic conventions we have.
