    Will people ever truly unite?

    Do you believe we will ever achieve total acceptance of other ethnicities or religions?

    Mankind has for thousands of years warred, enslaved, or suppresed due to ethnic and religious differences. We are a creation that often times have low tolerance for difference. While we try to believe that here in the US we have overcome such petty actions it is still here. We still set limits on what we will and will not except even if we fail to see it.

    Do you believe we will ever achieve total acceptance of one another or do you believe we are better off throwing the idea of unity out the window and realize that we are better off segregating ourselves from one another?

    Personaly I believe our ethnic and religious differences will always be a issue that we will never overcome. I never understood the need or reasoning for us to try to unify different societies into one big mass. In doing so we all lose a bit of what we were to become something we were not.

    Edit- Well I failed at the poll so I need moved. Opps..

    We will never unite because there are too many racist asshats and too many extremely conservative people in this world.

    The idea is good one but all we can do is wave as it passes by.

    We won't unite and I don't think it has to do with racism, but divisionalism. It's almost hard wired for us to notice differences first before we rationally stop to consider similarities. Things that are different scare us which in turn transforms into prejudice.

    We are very animal and tribal in that way.

    There's no poll option...


    But yes, people will unite. When there's evidence of a mass alien invasion.

    This is the most asinine statement I have read here to date.

    "Racist Asshats". When you see a racist vs when I see a racist, we see two different races wearing "Asshats". This by nature of you being a PC Liberal. Mine is through observation of a hate ,and rage filled culture, unwilling to join the human RACE.
    Presently the shakedown... hatedown efforts, of the most racist culture on earth, does not serve them well, nor does it serve humanity AT ALL.

    Not as long as there are religions.
