The ridiculousness of race

There is headline news of the candidate who won an election in Texas by pretending to be black.  Appearing white or black does not mean you are genetically black or white.  It’s all superficial. I am sure if a genetic testing were to be carried out on the candidate one would find that he has Saharan African blood in him and I am not sure if the one-drop blood test is still operating in the USA. You know, where it is said if you have one drop of black blood in you,  you are considered to be black by the state.

It’s true what  Wilson said that he is not the only one who lies, he basically said that all politicians lie when they want to win an election – by any means necessary. Interesting read however – check out the link

Book about Maddox and his lies

Finance and Investment
Author Diana Henriques Reports on Bernard Madoff, ‘The Wizard of Lies’

Bernard “Bernie” L. Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme has had devastating consequences for countless victims, and several initiatives have recently cropped up as a result. These include the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s centralized TCR Database for tips, complaints and referrals. But in a recent presentation to the Knowledge@Wharton advisory board, New York Times reporter Diana B. Henriques, author of The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust, argues there is still more “this epic crime might teach us.”
