Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.177: Deep One Statuette

In response to events in the UK - and the sadly predictable global rise of racism under the auspices of unregulated neoliberal capitalism - today kicks off day 1 of Lovecraftian Social Justice Warrior Week (which, if nothing else, will hopefully annoy a few conservatives on the Lovecraftian scene). Here I present a Deep One statuette of unknown provenance: a rejoinder to the myth of race (and especially to that of 'racial purity') and by way of a reminder that modern genetics demonstrates that all of us - every single one - is a hybrid entity, and that we are all somebody else's 'Other'.
