If only we could just act like human beings(every one of us), then we wouldn't have to worry about the issue of race. Sadly, we do.

I think most sophisticated communities are well past issues with interracial relationships or homosexual relationships or whatever else we do to try to keep people from experiencing love.

The others will be dragged along by their knuckles.

Actually, it's human nature to compartmentalize ourselves. If not race, then it's religion, gender, class, nationality etc. Bigotry will always exist in some form.

Ah, but we do all act like human beings.

What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how
infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and
admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like
a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals—and yet,
to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me—
nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.


-- Hamlet II, 2.

Default Leftists

Tolerance, justice and human rights, and civil rights, and agendas the left, socialist, communists and liberals. It seems to me that you are the worst of the intolance, freedom and liberty. You refer to yourselfs as races, you can't go a sentence or two without bringing up your race and your group. The Rights because of a group or economic standing. Lets move past the classes, races and economic differences. This post only shows how you believe America will change because we need to "Mix Races". The sooner we remove the barriers of race without THE FORCE OF GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE programs and FORCED change I think alot more humanity can return to our country. Also remove this Teaching from SCHOOL which is also a social planning education board of our future. If you love someone because they are black, white, yellow etc or because of a religion you are hopeless. Just love someone because you love the person. Love Americans and America.
Not for what the government can do for you but you can do for yourself.

Humanity return to America? When was it ever here in a just and equal way? Is this some place in a alternate universe America you of which you speak? Heck in my parents time people were being water hosed in this country and told they couldn't eat at certain establishments because of their skin color. A decade or two ago a black man in Texas was dragged from the back of a pick up truck by whites until his head came off. America is a lot of things but Humane hasn't been one of them. We are slowly reaching a civilized age here (I hope) but we still have a long way to go.

I don't think so. There are many areas in this country where the population is "upper class" and "sophisticated", but these are some of the most racially segregated places. These are the people who will tell YOU and I that we need to integrate, but yet refuse to do it themselves. It's called hypocrisy.

I interpreted Bluefly's application of sophisticated as "having a refined knowledge of the ways of the world cultivated especially through wide experience." (Merriam Webster Online)
