    Well, I don't find the AmazinC name racist or offensive....but I think the "ugly horse" thing really shows your true colors.

It would seem to lend more credibility to the test method, imho.
    No problem. It's a pretty interesting book. Anything related to behavior it talks about. I don't think I'll sell it back just because it's so interesting.

    Don't think it was applied to humans as this book is just horses only. It covers every other aspect of vison too like depth perception, distance, acuity, etc.

    Well, one shouldn't judge fellow creatures by their looks. And, I was being sarcastic.

    It sounds very interesting. If I could read, I might check it out.

    I always find it odd that white people are called "Caucasian". I mean, it's some far , far away range of mountains on the border of Europe and Asia. How'd that ever get applied to people of what is most European descent?

    I like to write "Euro-American" on the race surveys. Sounds so much classier.
    Or, I could write "Heinz 57 mutt", too, and that would describe me as well.

    Not "grade"?
    Or something like a labradoodle? (in terms of designer dog breeds)

    I never much liked being called a "howlie" by my Hawaiian friends, but...at least they called me! Lol

    Face it, every term out there is going to be considered offensive to somebody. Technically using the term "African American" is inappropriate as well because many Blacks aren't of (recent) African decent!

    Technically speaking we're all from Africa!
    This is a little off topic but so cute I had to share.

    My husband came home from the drugstore quite proud one day.

    Shampoo was on the list. He bought a bottle for women of color.

    He was proud because he thought he picked out a shampoo for women

    Who color their hair....
