    ...dark skin and kinky hair might be one of the first things to go, given the many disadvantages babies with those traits will have in life.

    Or maybe white skin, so racists are disarmed.

    So you think white people have a corner on the racist market ? My black ex-wives Grandmother would never talk directly to me or just ignored me. The reason was because she didn't like white people.

    The editing process will depend upon how the individual is to be designated in the Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta or Epislon hierarchy.

    But that's what you implied with your comment. You specifically mentioned White people.

    Probably white skin and that funky wet dog smell. No one wants to be white which is why they burn themselves in tanning beds. Being white has caused lots of mayhem and insecurity in white folks. Tide has a cure for the wet dog smell and they even put it in a commercial but editing it out via the genes has to be the best way to go.
