I wanted to ask whether diversity makes strife more likely.
I have little interest in "race" as you believe it has been dishonestly defined. But, you're wrong on that issue anyway.
"The art of the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Rome, India, and China, and the Islamic civilization from AD 700 to 1400 shows that these societies classified the various peoples they encountered into broad racial groups. They sorted them based upon the same set of characteristics -- skin color, hair form, and head shape -- allegedly constructed by Europeans when they invented 'race' to justify colonialism and white supremacy."

Ok, firstly, head shape has nothing to do with skin colour- there are a variety of head shapes in every "race"- as you define it. Skin colour is an adaption to UV levels, and a natural reaction to protect the skin from it.
As for strife- it's likely just as much within family/same race units. I mean the French and the English derive from the same "race" and they had MORE fights than we have now.
Art is a human expression, defined through different experiences (perhaps defined by different environments, beliefs, etc). I think, instead of looking at the differences, it would be nice if you could explain the similarities- why did the Maya in South America construct pyramidal buildings like the ones in Egypt, and the Ziggurats in the Near East?
And don't quote some BNP article, or anything of the like. I'm not quoting anything here, I'm asking you to THINK for YOURSELF! I know it's hard when you are subjected to propaganda, but I'm sure you can...
