Sequel to The Never-Published Story That Scientifically Destroys Racism with Photos

I’m gonna beat the racism out of your tiny, Neanderthal, shriveled walnut of a brain if I can. Just try to explain the races you see in these photos, and explain which ones should hate whichever other ones, for whatever reason.

Geez, you have me confusing myself. But note one thing as you look at these Wikipedia photos: they all actually are photos. Photos taken of real-live humans living on Earth. Can you believe the variety? Can you guess by looking where the hell these various people live, or where they used to live? No, the captions come at the end, no cheating please. I just want people to look and think. That’s all, folks. (Here’s the original — right here, below) — it’s the story I wrote and to which this one you’re reading is a sequel:

2. Image info at end of article.
3. Image info at end of article.
4. You know the drill by now. But stop here and tell me: in what country on Earth was this man found living?
10 Hint, you deserve it: Australia!
11. These indigenous people were found in New York, at the United Nations. Go figure.
