the competition will never be over. it is built into our DNA as a species, all races.
And so is co-operation, and altruism.
multiple ways exist to win the competition, such as direct confrontation or subterfuge if/when direct confrontation fails or is sure to fail then alternative methods are used.
And multiple ways exist to integrate and accomodate such as kindness and generosity.
it is a zero-sum world.
I'm not sure exactly what you mean buy this, but it is an overused phrase.
I think I know what it means, and it is clear that it is not a zero sum world at all. If it was we'd all still be living in the trees. Co-operation is additive. It's a plus sum world, and that is how humans managed to leave Africa and colonise the entire globe.
discrimination is built into our DNA as well, all races. we treat the wealthy better than poor, they get better food and better items. we treat the pretty better than the ugly. we treat the educated better than the ignorant. human life is competition from birth till death.
Discrimination is not whooly genetic. It is mostly cultural. You have been brought uo with negative images of "young black males" every night on TV shooting, looting, and robbing. The real criminals wear smart suits and steal billions, are usually white, and they own the TV channel so you see less abou them though they do more harm.
Racism is self fulfilling, one level of prejudice leads to another- YBM have fewer job opportunities because of negative propoganda and this means that their options are fewer, crime becomes a good option, and the circle closes. holding views as you do, that discrimination is inevitable is also self fulfilling.
I see often firsthand how a race of ppl strives to copy another race. so often when the copy is complete, they hate it and go back to the old ways because the cost of the new in multiple ways is more than expected. not about wrong and write, it is about being authentic.
I do not understand what this means, or what you are talking about.
one race will tell that others treat them bad, while at the same time treating a third race bad themselves. no one is immune to this, it is part of what we are. doesn't make it good, but it is true.
