    These are interesting points worth bringing up, but if its discussion you’re really looking for you ought to be more chill.

    I’m a birdwatcher and I’ve often seen birds of different species flocking together. Strike one.
    You need to reduce the size of your font or people are going to start ignoring you.

    Well, you have destroyed us with your intellectual prowess, for sure. We all cower at your large brainy-ness.
    Obviously I have no idea what a “race” is. I guess I will have go back to Indiana University and set them straight. And my wife, good thing she is retired, because her career as a psychologist was a complete waste. I can’t wait to go tell the homeless I step over every day that he just has to think his way to happiness. I’ll tell him to stop worrying about the gubermint suppressing him, that’s just foolishness.

    Humans are all the same species. Races are like varieties. I know this because my white niece married a black man and they have two sons. My white nephew married a black woman and they have a daughter. Another white nephew married an Asian woman and they have a daughter. You couldn’t do that if races were different species. Strike two.
    When people segregate into enclaves, it’s generally because of language and culture, not race. They originally did so because of people like you who tried to give them a hard time for being “different”. Now you’re a separatist who thinks that whites should withdraw into White’s Only ghettos because you feel threatened by diversity. I find that deliciously ironic. Strike three. 🙂

    Race and culture are strongly linked, language is less so but it still makes a difference. And self-segregation is an evolved behavior in humans, it happens even under the best social conditions.

It’s true that there is a connection between race and culture, but there isn’t a single “black culture” any more than there’s a single “white culture”. It depends on where you come from — Nigeria, Mozambique, Haiti, Chicago? And what of white immigrants from say Poland or Russia? It’s their language that separates them from American culture, not the color of their skin.
    And it’s true that it’s natural for people to self-segregate to some extent, but we also segregate by sex, don’t we? Don’t men prefer to spend their leisure time in sports bars with other men? Would anyone suggest that a man who wanted to marry a woman was suffering from mental illness?

    That’s much different, men marrying women is completely normal. People of different races hanging out together is not really normal.

    The point is all cultures are different from each other and race is a major reason for that.

    A reason but not the ONLY reason. For me, the point is that even if cultures are different, there’s no reason we can’t live together.

    That’s much different, men marrying women is completely normal. People of different races hanging out together is not really normal.

    But not ABnormal enough to be considered a sign of mental illness, as Cultsmasher claims. That was my point. I respect your opinion, but this is one thing we’re just going to disagree on.

    We all have some neanderthal in us. So at one time we mixed with not just a different culture, but a different sub species. We’ve always mixed, we’re just able to travel further and faster now, so we do it more.

    Agree with you that simply associating with other races is not a sign of mental illness.

    Not normal by whose standard?To some degree, everyone’s. Self segregation is an evolved behavior.

    No doubt about! This post is a perfect example of mental illness.
