    K, so why you put it in the race section, then? Surely you know how it's gonna go.

    I'm all for removing references to race from every governmental form currently displaying references to race.

    However, if this occurred, I am certain large numbers of American citizens would go into cardiac arrest when realizing they're gonna be treated equally, just like every other American.

    Peace.

    Ask the Mods.
    Dividing people up by skin color into groups serves only one purpose for one kind of hater.

    That is an interesting phenomenon, though.

    This is laughable. It took 400 years for whites to figure out what everybody else already knew. So until the damage is fixed from the racism whites embraced whole heartedly for that 400 years, this epiphany is wasted words.

    “ I posit that the Discourse of Individualism functions to: deny the significance of race and the advantages of being white; hide the accumulation of wealth over generations; deny social and historical context; prevent a macro analysis of the institutional and structural dimensions of social life; deny collective socialization and the power of dominant culture (media, education, religion, etc.) to shape our perspectives and ideology; function as neo-colorblindness and reproduce the myth of meritocracy; and make collective action difficult. Further, being viewed as an individual is a privilege only available to the dominant group. I explicate each of these discursive effects and argue that while we may be considered individuals in general, white insistence on Individualism in discussions of racism in particular functions to obscure and maintain racism.”
