I've been noticing several threads on racism and I am tired of it. I wonder how we would discriminate amongst ourselves if all looked the same.

Possessions. Power. Talents. Abilities. Attitudes. You can complete the list. Only naive believe, all people are born equal. Or liers.

If everyone were exactly the same.. there would be one gender wouldn't there? One generation. How would we distinguish the good people from the bad? How would we catch criminals?

Sure, it may eliminate bullying (if it's assumed that no one would have health issues or deficiencies or anything). Then everyone would have the same birthday, you wouldn't be unique. Would there even be celebrities? How would you feel if you didn't get a job because you didn't get there first? If everyone had the same talent and the same information... it would just not be good. We don't know, but if we use our brains to imagine, which is the only thing we CAN do, we could say that it is boring. If we asked twins, yes their life isn't boring, but not thousands other people look like them, and they sometimes have difficulties too.. competition between twins.. they look the same so they should be able to do the same things. Stuff like that.

Moral of the story. You gotta take the good with the bad. Differences make every person unique and there will probably be at least some ignorant people who try and call those differences bad due to race, sex, sex-orientation, money, etc. F**k 'em and 'do you'.

Maybe not such a bad thing as no one would be judged on appearance.

then all the people north of a certain line on the map would hate and try to conquer all the people south of that line on that map.

That's something we can all do if we want. Some of us already do....Appearance is only one of many things people may choose to judge us by...

Most of us don't though. Reality check.
