One can befriend the world, but still understand that we are unique, as others are unique. Pretending that we are all the same is an insult to all of us. It demeans everyone on the planet, by denying everyone on the planet the characteristics that make each unique. One of those characteristics is one's race and ethnicity. There are other characteristics, of course, also. But many of those fit patterns that correlate with one's race and ethnicity. Why the compulsion to deny this reality?!
