Re: Colour me surprised (not)

I agree that the black inclusiveness movement in entertainment has gone too far. The other day I started watching a period piece set about 300 years ago in Europe. Many of the nobility and a big chunk of the peasants were black. I found it too disconcerting and patronizing to keep watching.

Be careful what you wish for. If the US splintered into two much weakened countries, China and possibly Russia would dominate the world. Joe Biden is no Xi Jinping.
