      That's exactly what happened in the comments on an io9 article about it. Somebody started with the predictable "I'm sure some sensitive people are going to call me 'racist', but" line, and then was going on and on about how they didn't think "full-blooded, same-father, same-mother siblings" could be "black" and "white." Commenter after commenter started posting pics of salt-and-pepper mixed-race siblings at them, and hilarity ensued. :-D

      I was ashamed of io9 that a noticeable minority had that viewpoint, but also proud of io9 that the pushback was so very much larger than the former faction.

      Somewhere on Facebook I said something to the effect of "so sorry that we confuse you by existing" and was told to "fuck off" by somebody who was insisting he was actually more anti-racist than me, because...erm...something. That was never really made clear. :-D

        I don't know what i09 is, but glad that firefight happened there.  Though I'd love to see it on the front page here at DK sometimes.  It seems like preaching to the choir a bit and some seem to think....if we ignore ___, it will not be an "issue".

          ...a geek-central scifi/science/futurism/tech blog that's where I get most of my genre TV/film news first these days. :-D I bet if your son's following news about the Fantastic Four movie, he's read io9 at least a few times.... :-D

            He actually "waited" until the season finale of STNG to throw my behind into labour.  Born and bred you might say.  In my house, smart is cool and always has been!
