To prevent me from being a baby bigot, on the rare occasions my parents visited me in the nursery they wore blackface. This continued into early childhood, up until they stopped having anything to do with me altogether. They also had my black nanny disguise herself as a Chinaman, and on weekends forced the Mexican gardener dress up as an Hasidic Jew.
Exposure to such an innovative program of conditioning might explain my scores on implicit association tests (I haven't the slightest taint of unconscious bias), as well as my love of minstrelsy.
In other exciting baby news, a faun was born in Zimbabwe:
The community of Lower Gweru and its surroundings in the Midlands Province was left shell-shocked when a goat gave birth to human-like creature that had the combined features of a man and a goat..*In March a half human - half cow was born in Mazabuka, Zambia.
The creature had a human head, face, nose, shoulders and human-like skin that had very scanty furs.
It had goat features from the “shoulders” to the legs...
Midlands Governor and Resident Minister Jason Machaya, police and the media visited Maboleni area to have first-hand information.
Governor Machaya said it was disgracing that a man can stoop so low opting for animal company in a world full of women.
“This incident is very shocking. It is my first time to see such an evil thing. It is really embarrassing. The head belongs to a man while the body is that of a goat. This is evident that an adult human being was responsible. Evil powers caused this person to lose self control,” he said.
“We often hear cases of human beings who commit bestiality but this is the first time* for such an act to produce a product with human features.”
