Owatonna, MN (507)444-7690 EVOLUTION CONTINUES He was just 5 years old and had spent the whole day playing with Brian. The next day he said to his room and dad, "Brian really has a lot of melanin in his skin doesn't he'?" Morn responded, "Yes he does. Did you tell him that?" Looking surprised at his morn he said," No, I figured he already knew it!" Brian's dad said that no, Brian probably didn't know why his skin was darker than the other boy's and he was going to use this as a time to explain it to Brian. You see what had happened, was the five-year-old's parents had spent a lot of time reading to their son. The books they read featured people from different backgrounds and life experiences. They also had books that answered questions such as "why do some people have darker skin or freckles'?" The simple answer was that they had more melanin in their skin and that people whose ancestry is from southern countries were created darker to protect them from the sun. Folks who have ancestry in northern Europe do not have much melanin because they didn't have much sun. Another question -- why are most white people concerned with time? Getting things done "on time," being "on time," thinking to future "times?" This is often referred to as being "linear." Many other cultures operate in a more "circular" fashion as it relates to time. Promptness and deadlines aren't as much a part of their cultural background. Again, there's an historical perspective that has to do with the climate of ancestors. Folks who lived in northern climates and were farming knew they had a short growing season and short daylight, so "time" became extremely important HERSHEY TRACK MEET PARTICIPANTS are pictured above. From left to right, Jesse Roscoe, Ramsey Roscoe, RaeAnn Thompson, Rikki Roscoe and Rachel Berger. The tracksters represented the Ortonville area at the regional competition held in Breckenridge.
