Mr Brown, who died in 1972 aged 74, was a Caucasian Australian believed to have earned the nickname because of his extremely fair complexion or because he had a penchant for using “Nigger Brown” shoe polish. - (spardeous)

Native HawaiiansWhat is the most essential and basic glue that binds living, and formerly living, and yet to be living individuals to other individuals whether they are animal or plant? Is it a piece of paper such as a constitution? Is it nebulous concepts such as "freedom" and "democracy"? Is it that they have occupied the same piece of land? No. Not one of these things is essential or basic. And none of them are very strong glue. What naturally glues together things that live or have lived or will live is having the same genome. In humans, this is usually expressed as being of the same race. - (Commentary) - (H. Millard index)

The Ignoble Savage By Thomas S. Garlinghouse
Bashers of Western civilization wax nostalgic over an imagined Golden Age, when Noble Savages, uncontaminated by capitalism, enjoyed peace, harmony and environmental balance. In reality, prehistoric peoples waged incessant, brutal wars and hunted vast numbers of animal species to extinction - perhaps even the woolly mammoth and other great Ice Age creatures of North America.
