I've been a bit lax in checking my sitemeter, which means most days I have the chance to look through five pages' worth (i.e. 100 visits) once or twice during the day. Some days I don't even get to it. I get about 500-700 visits a day, so most visitors aren't registering on my radar, and thus I'm not getting anywhere near the selection to find good searches that I used to find when I was checking more regularly and noticing about 75-80% of my traffic. But I do happen to have a couple searches from the last couple weeks that I can pull out on a day when I haven't got the time to write anything new that requires any thought.

What race is colin powell other than black

I suppose that would be the same ethnicity the Pope is other than German and the same state the president is registered to vote in other than Texas. Is it farther to New York or by car?


father black mother white kids will kids have kinky hair?

I've received a great many searches in recent months asking about differences between the genetic properties of kids whose parents are a black mother and a white father and kids whose parents are a black father and a white mother. Is there any evidence whatsoever that which parent is black and which is white will make any difference at all to skin color, hair type, and so on? I've never heard of any (other than the fact that people are searching for it and arriving at my blog). I wouldn't rule it out, because some traits are sex-linked. I just don't know why we should expect these particular ones to be sex-linked. They don't seem to be sex-linked among families with two parents of the same race, do they?

Jeremy, you said:

The last time I noticed, Colin Powell has not changed in appearance. He has remained the same and he ought to be proud of it. He will still remain an African American even if he can make it to Washington, DC... (or is farther to go to New York by train?)

Here's a race question that many people have asked: Why was Jesus born white, black, Asian, or Meditteranean?

Jesus was born Jewish because the people of Israel were God's chosen people. Why Jesus was born in the people he was born into is entirely due to why God chose Israel. Perhaps we can speculate about the reasons for that, as some have creatively done, but I don't think it's any further question of much deep significance as to why Jesus was born in the people God had initiated a special covenant with.

In the end, I agree. It doesn't really matter which nation or culture Jesus was born into. I am glad that Jesus was born Jewish. Maybe it let's me off the hook theologically. But let's say if Jesus was born into a Chinese or an African nation, the implications would be huge because these cultures do not necessarily come from covenantal culture. This can cause problems for covenant theology if a Messiah were to come to a non-Jewish culture. A savior and redeemer who comes to a people who do not deal with covenants might not work for reformers.
