Hillary Crashing in California
A Commentary by Dick Morris
Friday, February 01, 2008

Stop the presses! The very latest polling data from California indicates a sharp trend for Obama and against Hillary. Preliminary indications in other states are that the trend is very widespread and not just concentrated on the west coast.

Pollster Scott Rasmussen’s survey, conducted January 29, shows Hillary with a bare and dwindling 3 point lead over Obama in California. He has Hillary at 43%, Obama at 40%, and Edwards (the survey was conducted before he dropped out) at 9%. This data compares with a 20 point plus Hillary margin in most polls in California just a few weeks ago.

Other polls have Obama winning Georgia (O-52 H-36) and Alabama (O-40 H–35) with their sizable minority populations, but also very close in Massachusetts, trailing there by only H-43 O-37 and in Montana by only H-40 O-33. National polls also indicate a sharp closing of the race. Gallup has Hillary just six ahead and Rasmussen’s national data is even closer.

Edwards’ withdrawal will help Obama in all likelihood and, with these poll numbers, he is more likely to endorse Obama.

Of course, a lot will hinge on how well each candidate does in tonight’s Democratic debate.

But there could be a wrinkle. In most states, the most of the delegates are awarded by Congressional District where the two slates compete and the one with the most votes wins all the delegates from that district. Even if Obama were to carry California by, say 53-47, he might win the black districts by 80-20 and lose most or all of the white districts, giving Hillary the vast bulk of the delegates. Obama would have to get his margin of victory up to 8-10 points to be sure of sweeping the delegates in a given state.

Yet, when all is said and done, the trend lines for Obama are unbelievably positive just a few days before Super Tuesday.

McCain looks like a done deal. He is beating Romney in all five states with recent polls, winning California by 32-28, Illinois by 34-26, Georgia by 35-24, and Tennessee by 33-25. Huckabee is in second place in Tennessee with Romney running last.

Where Whites Came From, and Why They are Racist

Where Whites Came From, and Why They are Racist


Here’s scientific and genetic proof concerning where white people come from. This Article is just one of hundreds that can be found on the internet. There are also hundreds of books written about where white people come from, and also suggest that this is the real and main reason why white people are racist towards black people for no valid reason, and minorities, too. Read on!

“Scientists have discovered a tiny genetic mutation that largely explains the first appearance of white skin in humans tens of thousands of years ago, a finding that helps solve one of biology’s most enduring mysteries and illuminates one of humanity’s greatest sources of strife.
The work suggests that the skin-whitening mutation occurred by chance in a single individual after the first human exodus from Africa, when all people were brown-skinned. That person’s offspring apparently thrived as humans moved northward into what is now Europe, helping to give rise to the lightest of the world’s races. (This is not quit right, albinos started in Africa, and still exist in Africa today-and they come from two black parents, just like the first white people who lived in what is now called Europe-go to these websites and see pictures for yourself: Stichting Afrikaanse Albino’s (Article is called, “Stichting Afrikaanse Albino’s) and Stichting Afrikaanse Albino’s

The findings show just how small a biological difference is reflected by skin color. the newly found mutation involves a change of just one letter of DNA Code out of the 3.1 billion letters of the human genome–the complete instructions for making a human being.
The work raises a raft of new questions–not least of which is why white skin caught on so thoroughly in northern climates once it arose. Some scientists suggest that lighter skin offered a strong survival advantage for people who migrated out of Africa by boosting their levels of bone-strengthening Vitamin D.

Even study leader Keith Cheng said he was at first uncomfortable talking about the new work, fearing that the finding of such a clear genetic difference between people of African and European ancestries might reawaken discredited assertions of other purported inborn differences between races.

The discovery, described in the Journal Science, was an unexpected outgrowth of studies Cheng and his colleagues were conducting on the inch-long zebra fish, which are popular research tools for geneticists and developmental biologists. Having identified a gene that, when mutated, interferes with its ability to make its characteristic black stripes, the team scanned human DNA Databases to see if a similar gene resides in people.
To their surprise, they found virtually identical pigment-building genes in humans, chickens, dogs, cows and many others species, an indication of its biological value. They got a bigger surprise when they looked in a new database comparing the genomes of four of the world’s major racial groups. It showed that whites with northern and western European ancestry have a mutated version of the gene.

Skin color is a reflection of the amount and distribution of the pigment melanin, which in humans protects against damaging ultraviolet rays but in other species is also used for camouflage or other purposes. The mutation that deprives zebra fish of their stripes blocks the creation of a protein whose job is to move charged atoms across cell membranes, an obscure process that is crucial to the accumulation of melanin inside cells.
Humans of European descent, Cheng’s team found, bear a slightly different mutation that hobbles the same protein with similar effect. The defect does not affect melanin deposition in other parts of the body, including the hair and eyes, whose tints are under the control of other genes.

A few genes have previously been associated with human pigment disorders — most notably those that, when mutated, lead to albinism, an extreme form of pigment loss. But the newly found glitch is the first found to play a role in the formation of white skin.
The Penn State team calculates that the gene, known as slc24a5, is responsible for about one-third of the pigment loss that made black skin white. A few other as-yet-unidentified mutated genes apparently account for the rest. Although precise dating is impossible, several scientists speculated on the basis of its spread and variation that the mutation arose between 20,000 and 50,000 years ago. That would be consistent with research showing that a wave of ancestral humans migrated northward and eastward out of Africa about 50,000 years ago.

The finding’s most immediate impact may be an escalating debate about the meaning of race. Recent revelations that all people are more than 99.9 percent genetically identical has proved that race has almost no biological validity. Yet geneticists’ claims that race is a phony construct have not rung true to many nonscientists — and understandably so, said Vivian Ota Wang of the National Human Genome Research Institute in Bethesda. ” —
The Washington Post Company…

White people are ashamed of themselves-but are in denial of this obvious fact of course, and so they try to project their own sense of shame onto black people specifically, and other darker minority groups, because it is white people who changed from the black norm, and it was white people who raped the black African race in order to try and make it white like themselves, and try to coverup the fact that they are a direct mutation from the black African Race-not a mixture of other ethnic groups. However, minorities came into existance first by the rape by the whites from the caucusus mountain of the black Africans they mutated from. These barbaric whites did this, because they thought they could create more whites by doing so. However, they only created more blacks, and minorities, because whites are genetically recessive to both blacks and minorities, whose genes are dominate, and because white people are nothing more than a lighter version of the blacks they mutated from. Now, because of all the raping whites did during slavery, and colonization of other people’s nations, the albino gene that they carry now exists in all so called races of people, so both black and minority races now have a mutation in their skin colors every now and then which results in a white skinned person. However, white people are not, and never where the original people, nor the creators of mankind. The original man was and still is black and brown skinned.
