You can check on this but I believe that the Human Genome Project showed that all human beings are genetically 99.6% the same. The artificial divisions that have always stood between humans being tolerant of each other and living together peacefully seem to be toning down a bit but far, far from gone, especially in light of the fact that there are still those who gain power from encouraging and exploiting division and hate. Still, if you had told me in 1960 that I’d live to see a President of color I would have been very doubtful, certainly incredulous. Old hatreds die hard though and Romney carried all those states where black people are still called “nigrahs” and worse. Without those states, how many electoral votes would he have received? The sad part is that the majority of those who voted for him in those states are the same ones who would be hurt the most by his corporate state.
