For the Beauty of Mud-Bloods

It's weird that your Blog remembers this...


Back in junior high school, the future PC had a friend that was Archie Bunker's "Mini-Me."

Short, squat and chunky and suffering from asthma, he was the one kid who got picked for gym class teams after your Blog.

I don't remember the context of the discussion, hell, I don't remember what I had for lunch yesterday...

But, I remember him saying, at the wise and ripe old age of, what? 13 or 14? on the subject of interracial marriage...

"Are you okay with a future generation of beige people."

"Beige people?" Indeed.

The little voice in my young head was all, "Dayyumm!  What a BeeGot!"

                                                 In J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" novels,
                                                      she coins the phrase, "mudblood."

Your PC caught up with this Junior Klansman via and discovered that not every youngster outgrows his original prejudices.

Some people never outgrow the bigotry that they learned from their parents.

In a recent post, National prognosticated about the subject of future beauty. 

Your Blog makes his living doing beauty.

And, he observes that some of the most stunningly beautiful people, currently residing on our planet, are "mixed race" people.

Asians and Africans with a dollop of Caucasian mixed in makes for serious beauty.


As a beauty professional, I am all for a future of beautiful, "beige" people.
