I agree wholeheartedly with James and want to add that there is an
obvious lack of understanding about the interaction of dominant and
recessive genes in the original post. In simple terms, dominant genes
generally produce an enzyme or structural protein which recessives are
unable to produce. Therefore, what good would it do to turn on a gene
which does nothing while it is still in the presence of a gene which does

Also, IMHO, racism is best destroyed by working on the hearts, minds and
souls of individuals who hate or fear. In my experience the best tool
against racism has been to have many friends and associates from many
different cultural and racial backgrounds...thereby turning "them" into
"us". I believe this is exactly the kind of thing that is beginning with
lists on the WWW.
