Are you making fun of southerners or blacks? I'm missing the reasoning for that.
As for Jesus, wasn't he that dark skinned Jewish kid from Egypt or Palestine or something? Something of a trouble maker as I recall.

Well it is to be expected; the 'proponents' or 'opponents' of anything will mention all the factors that reinforce their particular point of view.
Examples: 1) Those who favour nuclear power generation will emphasize low cost, long life of the fuel etc. while de-emphasizing any of the risks of leakage, transportation or disposing of radio-active materials, etc. 2) Proponents of electric cars will emphasize the lack of pollution, lower cost of the fuel while deemphasizing battery costs, battery life, greater vehicle complexity/manufacturing, shorter range. Costs of recycling those batteries included? 3) Opponents of hunting, e.g. seal hunting in Alaska, Eastern Canada, Eastern Russia etc. will emphasize pictures of red blood on white ice and (incorrectly) that 'baby seals' are harvested. While conveniently forgetting that millions of pigs, chickens, cattle are slaughtered commercially every day. And are not eggs embryonic 'baby chickens'? :-) 4) Enthusiastic adopters of CFLs (Compact fluorescent lamps) will emphasize electricity saving by users, while completely missing the increased production complexity and energy use along with more toxic materials during manufacture. Also greater recycling costs! 5) On a lesser scale people who like and light candles seem to forget that they with several candles they are burning a pound or two of hydrocarbons within the atmosphere of their loving space! 6) Having families of three or four people living in four thousand square foot housing; using (and wasting) many gallons of water and high amounts of energy (either fossil fuel directly or electrically) will eventually become unsustainable; while proponents of the 'Good life' and intense 'consumerism' will continue to promote it! And so on, and so ....................................... depending on ones point of view! Anyway must go and help my son who is installing better insulation around the windows of a house he bought; then help him replace the leaking pump of their clothes washer. Later, he'll hopefully give me a hand to install a used (and repaired, other wise it would have gone to the dump) dish washer that somebody gave me, free! It only needed one minor repair from scrapped parts we had on hand! Reuse-recycle eh?

Good. I'm guilty on some counts but I try to be reasonable. I'm on the side of less burning out of the earth and leaving something for the future. Freecycle and all that.
I don't believe the Supreme Court has ruled yet on when life begins for a chicken. I guess it's an easy question if the egg hasn't been fertilized - and I'm guessing that most egg producing chickens aren't having sex. I think I'm safe eating eggs. Except for the horrible conditions the poor things have to live in. So, I do go for the free range type. Nothing like eating eggs from contented chickens.
