Strathy Follow glencstrathy To sell your novel, you may need to know how to write a synopsis, even if you are a pantser-type novelist who can write a whole novel without making an outline first. Agents and publishers will often ask for a synopsis along with sample chapters before they request a complete manuscript. Then the other team scored.
Best to adopt a different term entirely. I find it clear and informative and the opposite of tendentious. Walter White, several very minor details that have no bearing whatsoever on the point of this post. The reason for so few is because of how the color line opened up two options. If they made the choice not to pass, they would almost certainly need to partner with someone with more black ancestry than themselves, else severely limit their mating pool.
Jacob M Interesting post. I am a white male from the United States. I am assuming this because my X chromosome has a significant run of African heritage. She had always maintained that her family was part Native American, but this did not show up in the analysis.
Riordan Thank you thank you for this piece. The whole Richwine debate needed a good introductory primer for the none numerate, and this one more than serves that purpose. And certainly not the kind of authoritarian,tyrannical, top-down force-based prescriptions your delusional kind demand.
Knowledge is your friend.
Why are you so scared of your friend? Ben Jealous visibly has some e. His father is white. Butterfield on the other hand…. ESRogs Wow, total non sequitur from what was actually said. I have yet to meet a social constructionist on the question of race that denies that, within particular social groupings there will be a higher rate of shared genetic material.
But thanks for an otherwise well developed argument. So any narrative you wish to present about race happens in this context in this time. I work under the premise that no knowledge is disinterested knowledge.
Thanks for the discussion. African slaves were used very early on in the process of colonization, and their use spiked considerably as the indigenous populations of the Americas were being wiped out by exposure to brutal working conditions, disease, and violence.
He points out that the cost of buying and maintaining an African slave may have actually been higher than the cost of having a European indentured servant come over.
This system was tried, and did exist, but the fact that Europeans were so susceptible to malaria meant that these individuals never lasted long, whereas African slaves did. Further, if you look throughout the Americas, you see a much larger proportion of Afro-descendants in hot humid areas.
Look at the Carribean. Look at the coastal areas of Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Up in the Andes, Afro-descendants are much fewer.
In many coastal areas that are prone to malaria, they predominate. But most Sub-Saharan Africans still are.
However, Pygmies seem to be classified as such rather more often perhaps due to their darker skin. So for discussion about the U. Secondly, the proportion of racial affinity has to be taken into account, and again measured scientifically, not guessed at impressionistically.
And therefore, racial IQ claims are pseudoscience. Hence, I guess you could say we have a good data point that race as social construct matters more than race as biological reality… …in Cape Verde anyway.
Emil Kirkegaard A decent proxy for what I recommended to be done, thanks. Emil Kirkegaard Such a lack of power would tend to dilute the correlation, not make it stronger, right?
In any case, it is very possible to do a pretty decisive test of the hereditarian position: Gather a large sample of African Americans, give them a battery of tests, extract the g factor, get a genome sequencing on all of them, see if the g factors correlates with amount of African ancestry.
It would be a good test, I think.Deriving meaning in a time of chaos: The intersection between chaos engineering and observability. Crystal Hirschorn discusses how organizations can benefit from combining established tech practices with incident planning, post-mortem-driven development, chaos engineering, and observability.

‘This weekend will be the last chance for visitors to look round the York Story museum before it closes on Sunday afternoon.’ ‘And on June 29, ex-pupils and staff are invited to reunite to have a final look round the building.’.
Learn how to write a call to action and convert traffic into customers with 6 examples, 54 words, and a solid foundation. Most writers are not story theorists, and don’t want to be. Still, an understanding of the way stories work can help support a writer’s instincts to make sure a flawed structure won’t get in the way of the creativity.
For a long time I wanted to create my own superhero, but I had any idea of where to start. The list above really helped me to pick out some things I want in my character and they also reflect who I am.
