    "Pre-destination" is the pre-eminent slavery/segrationist/discriminatory defense.

    "Those" people are "pre-determined" to be "below" those who were "pre-determined" to be the "better" race.  

    It was the pre-eminent justification for Western colonization of the "dark" continent.

      of the term, Dan.  I've never seen it used in any but the religious doctrine sense.  Maybe that's what Judy was saying, but I didn't get that impression.  Even so, one option might be to ask for clarification before getting angry.  Like I said, I'm not picking on you, in fact I generally value your comments on this thread and elsewhere.  I just hate to see communication between generally like-minded folks melt down, that's all, and also I hope you don't get fed up with this site and stop posting here.  Different viewpoints are the life-blood of this site.
