  1. Hehehe. That’s why when I see reports on human remains that claim something like “white male” I just roll my eyes and groan – the “male” part is easy to determine (for adolescent and adult specimens anyway) from a good specimen of the pelvic girdle but any pronouncements of white/red/pinko/yellow/black/brown is nonsense.
