Identity Versus Diversity

It seems to me that humanity is having some difficulty maintaining our tribal identities within the push for diversity where the most promoted pairing is unlike with unlike, miscegenation. Will some groups disappear or will they continue to shine in humanity, each with its own unique light and contribution? Will smaller populations remain socially and genetically distinct or go the way of the Neanderthals, killed off and remnants absorbed into other groups? For example, what about the persecuted Caucasian tribes such as the southern European Basque, the Kurds of western Asia, or the mixed Caucasian-Asian Uighurs of Mongolia? What about humanity's global population of redheads, who are less than 2% of the world's population, approximately 140 million people? Ginger used to be a fragrant spice, now it is a slur against redheads.*


At a basic biological level some human traits are recessive and others are dominate; in this great mixing up will some recessive human traits such as blue eyes and blond hair simply disappear? Do we want all of us the same color, with the same characteristics, the same minds and abilities?

* "Scientists in 2005 from the University of Edinburgh found that people without souls, a.k.a. redheads, have a higher tolerance for pain than normal people. This is because the MC1R mutation, which all soulless have, triggers the excess release of pheomelanin which, among other things, stimulates a brain receptor related to pain sensitivity."

"Ginger is also a variety of red hair. However, it is closer to orange color than to red. Gingers are redheads with only fair skin and a pale skin full of freckles. These characteristics make gingers ugly in the eyes of many and thus, when ginger is used as a term to describe a person, he or she feels discriminated as ginger being a derogatory term.,,"
