When I was little, I would sit on my Grandpa's lap, and then, I would braid his long, white beard while babbling on and on. I miss that.

As I said on part 1, Majority rarely rules anything, most decisions are made by compromise. This post is silly because it implies all whites want the same things. Clearly not true. When voting some whites vote one way and other's vote another way, same for each other race you have identified. So the graphic is meaningless in the context of "rules".
Yes, "majority rules" is a principal that I believe most Westerners agree with. Basically it means that the side with the most votes wins, be it an election, a piece of legislation, etc.. It's fundamental to democracy. However it is a little more nuanced than that. The principal does __not__ grant the majority the power to control, abuse, or marginalize the minority. Minorities must always be protected from the Tyranny of the Majority. One only needs to look the historical treatment of African Americans in U.S. history to understand why this is important.
How about Some people have darker skin than me. I am sure I can find some people who self-identify as black who have lighter skin than me. Likewise I know people who self-identify as white who have darker skin than me People play contact football, why do people care about the particulars of anyone else's genitalia? If they want to tackle let them tackle. For me, my attention is raised when someone's statement appears to hinge on the race or gender of the subject. Why does that matter? And how is the speaker determining the race or gender without some kind of DNA analysis? What if that 'black girl's ' DNA shows a Y-chromosome and nordic ancestry for 30 generations? I say let each decided for themselves if or when they will identify with a race or gender while the rest of us stop guessing until they tell us their decision.
