No religion, no races , no distinct ethnic groups, no reason to hate the "other' because we will all be the same a mixture of the distinct waring tribes that are now on the verge of destroying our world the only superior race is a mixed race the only true religion is no religion , we should probably allow the Italians to remain a distinct ethnic group , someone has to direct our movies and make pizza

Humans are incredibly effective in finding specific reasons to hate other groups. If races or religions ceased to exist, the insecurity that fuels victimization would remain. Facts such as wealth, nationality or political affiliation would become predominant factors, leaving us no better and no worse off in general. In a world where your allegiance to professional football teams can lead you to be singled out for violence [1], the need to single out differences of any kind appears to be the prime factor in negativity - and thus even if one source of difference is removed, it will not create a meaningful impact.
