Race no more

The race of the future will be a composite, composed of the many different races on earth today.

"The world has a long way to go before it truly is 'globalized', if by that odd word we mean 'the same everywhere'. No doubt we are on the way. Reading biologist Edward O. Wilson, I discover that in a few dozen generations all human beings will be 'the same', in the sense that whether in London or Shanghai or Moscow or Lagos, the same racial mix would be found," wrote Tim Harford.

That would be interesting, wouldn't it?

No one will bother, or be disturbed, to comment such as this. It will be seen as pure research or study.

There will be no more racial discrimination or stereotyping.

There will be no minorities, bumiputera, or pribumi.
