    “Dramatic increase of intermarriage between whites and blacks, shows US census” what do you mean with dramatic? are you scared Mercopress?

    whites and african-americans. white is a colour, african-american is a colour or a nationality or what? I always thought that a person born in the USA is a united statian even when he/she is not “white”, or what you call “an american”.

    None of what you said made any sense.
    I guess that's bound to happen when your'e ignorant in another language/culture.
    The word dramatic in this sense just implies that it was a marked increase. People who are born in the United States of America are called Americans. White is a color and a race. African-American is a race not a color.

    “I guess that's bound to happen when your'e ignorant in another language/culture.”

    Take a good look at yourself in a mirror and you come to same conclusion of how you try to name xbox ignorant, when it comes to culture and nationalities.

    “People who are born in the United States of America are called Americans.”
    Wrong. People born in the United States of America are called US/USA citizens. Look it up in your passport next to the word “nationality”. Oh wait you don't have one.

    “White is a color and a race. African-American is a race not a color.”
    White/Caucasion race. African-American isn't a race, just a nick name for blacks/negroes (black/negro race) in the United States. Majority of the blacks in the US and in the rest of the Americas aren't even FULL black, and has been proven by a known black professor Gates delves.
    Marriage between white and black in the US isn't new and for some reason there isn't a name for the people of mixed race between white and black (mulat) and that's why there is still confusion in that group in the US to who they belong, Beyonce and many more is a great example.
    It shouldn't be a problem, but the fact is, it is still a problem in the US. Similar how they call Spanish speaking people in the US, “Hispanic”, while it isn't a race at all. they are black, white, mixed (light skin or brown) and even yellow, but oh no, even that is an issue in modern USA, where many folks still believe that the US is full white nation and where many people include politicians, teachers and professors struggle with this “race” issue and love to lable. They enjoy it and is accepted, also thanks to the Lame mainstream media.

    I have seen a million such feet on these Bahian Beaches.
    Luckily, the Bahian Baggy Beach Bermudas cover the sordid spectrum of shapes and sizes.

    Yup, what we need is a great big melting pot . . .

    Take a pinch of white man,
    wrap him up in black skin,
    add a touch of blue blood,
    and a little bitty bit of red Indian boy.
    Oh, like the Curly Latin kinkies
    oh Lordy, Lordy, mixed with yellow Chinkees, yeah.
    You know, you lump it all together
    and you got a recipe for a 'get along scene.'
    Oh, what a beautiful dream.
    If it could only come true, you know, you know . .

    What we need is a great big melting-pot,
    big enough, enough, enough, to take
    the world and all its got,
    and keep it stirring for
    a hundred years or more,
    . . . . . and turn out coffee-coloured people by the score.

    Brasil got there years ago.

    After reading some of the comments above I finally realized why Frank,“the Yank” was so personally affected and “shocked” by the unavailability of Butter in our supermarkets during his last year’s visit to Argentina……...............:
