Do you believe society will ever truly overcome racism?


NO. Because we are animals. Our instinct is to be wary of creatures that are much different. Unfamiliar races are too strange to our animal selves for us to ever completely override that instinct with intellect. It would take either a LOT of evolution as a global community, or substantial racial blending and homogenization, or both, to reduce this response. It appears to me that before either of these mechanisms is complete way we will have a substantial reduction in human populations and return to a more tribal way of living which will separate us and reduce the blending of races, thus slowing or reversing the process.

Hmmmm... I think that it is possible but unlikely. The possibility exists due to the evolution of individual and social consciousness and racial blending but that biological instincts are likely to be a barrier to complete elimination of racism. I think it is likely there will be waves of population reduction and that there will be some return to tribal 1st world lifestyles but that there will remain a wealthy elite who rule the majority of the planet's resources. There may be attempts at power struggles between those who have and those who do not but armed efforts are not likely to unseat the wealthy elite. What might turn the tide will be the work of an intellectual elite who will play a better chess game and the evolution of consciousness which may also be furthered by wise master gamers. I often feel that Obama may be a master gamer.

Those choosing the 1st/5th World lifestyle may have to do so remotely or on 'reservations' and may be thus removed from the game except for the few among them who are able to cross between worlds and make their moves out of a passionate love for service to the planet and humankind.
