Another cartoon mythology. Why is it that these things mankind has evolved from are always depicted as looking like a human from Africa ??? My former college friends and I use to debate whether or not the African negro race was inferor to the White European. This was in the 1970s and I was the only one at the time that supported the fact that all races are equal. Yes, you might have guessed, my former friends were/are all white, but so am I.

So here's some important questions:

Is the white European superior to the African ???

Are Africans a living transitional evidence between Apemen and the white Europeans ???

When I went to school in the 60s, the science text books always depicted the sequential evolutionary stages as small Monkeys - Apes - Apeman - African bushman - white European. You won't find those mythological cartoons now, but you can still Google those wonderful examples on the net. The problem is I cannot usually get a straight answer from many experts today. It's simply politically incorrect to make such public statements and being labled racist. Yet the deafening silence tells me that the attitudes still continue but in secret. You can also Google terms "evolution & racism" and you will find many racist discussion forums promoting these dogmas as FACTS and with the same brand of intellectualism as found on the more moderate forums.

Sorry, but it's just discusting to me that's all.
