Or, you can accept that -- as a species -- humans are generally the same and it is what you act/perceive/do (culture!) that defines us. With that, you empower us to live, evolve, grow and continue as what we are.

Blood quantum is a bad, bad deal, man. Don't fall for it. Don't "take the cheese" and get caught in the trap.
Oh gawd here we go wit the dodo again....and the "cheese". I actually do agree with this part: "humans are generally the same and it is what you act/perceive/do (culture!) that defines us. With that, you empower us to live, evolve, grow and [i]continue as what we are"

But at the same time I'm kinda torn on the issue.....cause native people are so damn beautiful (male and female).....even though i'm an addition to the "problem" as well with my blue eyes and pale skin, I don't want everyone to end up looking the same. I like diversity.

Also, I think part of the issue with intermarrying IS culture though: if you marry someone with a completely different culture than your own, with different beliefs, it can make it difficult to understand each other and to agree on child raising. All this for the sake of argument I guess cause since I'm already of mixed decent its different, I can't really choose what I am. Although I have dated many races and love based on love, I will admit that I would prefer a native man....mostly culturally.....but can I help that I just happen to like darker skin and brown eyes? Just a preference.
