wanderlust is simply genetic diffussion? – mobile draft

In Fleshed Out Tweets on June 12, 2012 at 10:22 am

I’ve spent time, the past year, with reacquainted friends of the all mighty American faith….

Good Clubs, Schools, Hobbies, Clothes, Looks & Grooming- when Black Kids started wearing Polo Ralph Lauren I was unsurprised, I’d seen many people don camoflauge.

They each of them come from the Christian side of an extended family.

That is to say that for whatever reason one patriarch decided to become
American…
White….
Christian…..
(it all sounds so sordid)
While his brother remained Jewish……
And today I’m thinking that from a Darwinian point it was a brilliant, selfish and altruistic decision.
Your nephew has about as much common DNA with you as does your grandson.
Nobody would question a grandparent’s decision to take actions designed to assure the future procreation of their grandchildren.
So by donning new mufti the old boy lengthened the chance that someone was going to survive to old age while getting a chance to Shtup and produce Kinder.
I guess there is also a better chance that someone will make it to some afterlife and be able to beg the case with some dominant entity for the souls of his ancestors.
And it is so American….
The Amerinds put their backs to Asia, (or France if you keeping abreast of developments) and took their genes to a place that was different.
And all of our forebears did so as well….
OK, I’m not addressing the Middle Passage and we fail to remember that a significant number of black people, in the US are the progeny of later volunteer immigration from South America and the Caribbean.

Maybe not safer, but subject to different calamities.
So what- wanderlust is simply genetic diffusion?

It was an arms race and the peaceful Asians lost out to the warlike proto-Europeans, outstanding. The white man stuck it to the natives twice in NA. The first homonids left Africa for unknown reasons- I suspect the neighbors had something to do with it. I also suspect that there is an atavistic urge to protect ones genes by geographic dispersal.
