    Look up pix of a number of Jamaicans ranging from a former head of government named Manley (among others) to a toaster named Yellowman.



    Come to think of it, you'll be just as clearly understood in French as you are in English. Carry on.
    Yellowman wasn't of white ethnicity he was an albino.

    Nobody said that Yellowman was of "white ethnicity".

    There is no such thing as a single "white ethnicity", any more than there is such thing as a single "black ethnicity".

    Reference was made to "black" which--like "white"--is a complexion.

    "Zulu" is an ethnicity. "Han" is an ethnicity. "Greek" is an ethnicity. Some identify "African-American" as an ethnicity.

    Complexion does not equal ethnicity.

    Clear?

    you remind me of my german teacher, i was horrible at spelling, every time she give me a failure test back she'd say: everyone gets what they deserve.
    that winter she broke her leg during skiing and her husband died.
    i found it hard to hold my tongue.

    I remeber reading an 19th century English novel where they referred to various white folks as having black faces...
