Do you think humans would become a mono-race in the future and would racism vanish then?

Mono race = In this context mono race means that's only one race among the humanity because of a lot of interracial relationships mixing us so we becomes one single race. That means no Caucasian, Asian, black etc.

  • Dude people would just find something else to bitch about. Racism isn't the problem, the problem is that humans have some weird need to feel superior and will find or make up all kinds of shit to put themselves over others. Even if you took race out of the equation, society would just find some other factor to divide themselves over and fight about.

      people should evolve enough to stop wanting to be superior, and prefer being more humble, then

  • No.
    Most racism is not even between races or for racial differences.
    For example, there is a LOT of racism within races, with east Indians coming to mind the most. Where the idea of how you are allowed to marry fellow indians of the 'right caste' continues to this day.

    So.. that's a valid point to consider if maybe, once we have truly become just one massive race, maybe racism will be done for. Which I highly doubt, though, seeing as how much of an issue caste/cultural/religious differences seem to be quite the grounds for discrimination. Also, lets not forget how even within the same race, not everyone will be of the same lightness/darkness and there will be racism faced by the darker bunch by people of the same race.

      @lala_ray I never said that India is a racist country? It's not like India is the only country that has a caste ladder, or intraracial racism. I mean, my boyfriend is southeast Asian and it's insane how much 'racism' there is within that race as well. As for African countries, I've had no first-hand experience in terms of friends who are black telling me about it but I'm sure we've all heard about the whole 'light-skinned' versus 'dark-skinned' issue within the black community.

    • 4d

      Hey I am not accusing you of saying something... I am sorry if I sound like that... I am working on my English right now.. I know racism exists everywhere... all I wanted to say is caste based discrimination is almost nowhere now a days and it has nothing to do with skin colour.

  • More and more possible of people blending together, but there would hardly be a mono race...
    Since that would entail they're all very similar... which will never happen.

    What will happen, probably, is they'll all be very different, but with similar skin coloring...

    And the racism would be far worse, I would think... Why? I think when the differences aren't as obvious as skin color, they will begin to nitpick and judge others harsher on the basis of looks - so then maybe people with light eyes would be the predominantly more attractive and people with dark eyes won't be... Or people with curly hair would be more appealing than those with straight...
    And the ones with curly hair and light eyes would be the most beautiful...

    (I'm just spit-balling here... No way to know what will truly be the most attractive trait in later history... But this is a logical way of looking at what might be.)

  • As much as I wish we didn't become mono race (I love our differences, we look different and each race has beautiful special features) I think in a far away future we will. But I think racism can still happen in different ways like maybe they will discriminate people with lighter hair, or curly hair, or freckles, dark eyes... I mean even a same race has different trait right? If every human is mixed some with have a race in different areas maybe caucasian eyes, African American hair, middle eastern nose, and another person will have native American hair, caucasian skin, and African American nose. And then people may see some superior than the other... Am I explaining myself? There are always gonna be ignorant people I think. I dunno.

  • Humans are always going to find ways to put certain groups down. "You're from the East side? Shit you must be poor/dumb", "you went to that school? You must be poor/dumb", "errr you do that kind of job? you must be lazy/poor/dumb"

    And well you'd be surprised how homogeneous some cultures still are. Japan and Korea are still mostly "pure" for example or at least mostly Asian

    I think it would need racism to be gone in order for it to be possible to get to a "monorace" and possibly it would require a monorace for racism to go away

    And by the end of the day if it's not race, it's something else. We're a tribal species and we like to keep company of the people that are like us and be suspicious of those that aren't

  • Will people become more mixed? Yes. It was just a few decades ago in the US where whites & blacks procreating was illegal. As we continue moving away from that, we'll see more and more mixed children. Will that stop racism? Definitely not. Will it affect it? Yes. Racism is an ideology, a way of thinking. Racism only stops when the mentality of it being logical stops. Even in people who are mixed with many races, you'll still be able to tell most of the time which race is more prominent on them. That's how racism is. Racists don't pull out and examine your genetic paperwork. They judge by what they see and if what they see is subhuman based on their opinions, then racism is still capable.

  • I doubt that discrimination against outsiders would go away entirely. It's an animal instinct to mistrust those that we don't know. It's not one that we have succeeded in getting rid of. As a general rule, humans fear that which is not exactly like them. It's not quite the recipe for tolerance.

  • The thought that we will become a mono-race is depressing. It means people won't have a national identity. Knowing where you come from and who is your ancestors is a part of your personal identity. Whole cultures and traditions would be lost, such as greek tradition, religions as well. It's a possible scenario due to globalization, the internet and mainstream culture. But I hope it won't happen. The way to end racism is not to eliminate differences. Hitler wanted to eliminate differences, and for one race to remain. Those thoughts are dangerous. The way to end racism is to show compassion to others, accept them all as brothers and sisters, and be open to the people who think differently than you. Learning about other cultures is also a way to understand them better, and consequently to be more receptive.

  • We'd probably become extinct before that happens. But say that never happens, then mono-race is bound to happen. But personally, I think racism will still exist. We will probably become much more technologically advanced so we'd provably be more pickier in terms of racism. Rather than judging merely by physical features, we can probably judge someone by their generic makeup. With that line of thought, those with a more lineage of the superior race will be favored than others.

The very definition of racism refers to the belief that one race is superior to another race or someone will act a certain way just because of their race. If we're all the same race, it's impossible to have those beliefs.

      People may become pickier, but that's just people becoming more judgmental. It has nothing to do with race.

What Guys Said 96

  • Yes, this is what scientists expect will happen if we assume there won't be any major catastrophes that wipe out humanity or a large part of it. However, it will take a long time for this process to be completed. Estimates talk about the year 3,000 or 3,500... so it's not something that we or our children will get to experience.

    Humans of the year 3,000 will likely have a mix of features from different races. They will have a slightly brownish (caramel) skin tone and darkish hair. Their eyes will probably have become bigger through natural selection in order to improve visual ability and their jaws might be smaller and rounder because they won't have to process very hard foods anymore (less chewing). Researchers also believe that future humans will be slightly taller, reaching around 1.90m on average. The Asian stub nose might survive but the folded eyelid will likely die out. Lips will probably be rather full. Some scientists also believe that men's genitals will be slightly bigger because this is a process that has been going on for thousands of years now (natural selection).

    Apart from that, the people of the year 3,000 will also speak different languages and possibly believe in different things than we do. Their English would not be recognizable to us anymore or only with great effort, just like Old English must be studied like a foreign language in order to be understood.

    I am assuming that racism as we know it will not exist anymore since racial differences won't exist anymore either. Humans will still look different but the differences will be much slighter than today.
    However, this doesn't mean there won't be any discrimination anymore. I am certain that people and societies will find new ways of forming in-group and out-group feelings and discriminating certain people. My guess is that socio-economic factors will play a larger and larger factor during the coming decades and centuries. I could imagine a world like in "Brave New World", where people are grouped into different classes, according to how wealthy and how educated they are.
    But then again, a lot can happen in 1,000 years and it's almost impossible to make any accurate predictions whatsoever. Just imagine the people of the Middle Ages would have had to predict the year 2017. I'm sure they would have miserably failed.
    And some people such as Stephen Hawking don't even believe we'll make it to the year 3,000.

      You says people would maybe get a smaller jawline, have a slightly brownish skin, kinda dark hair etc. So do that mean humans would maybe look like these people on the picture I put in the question? : )

    • 5d

      Maybe. I was thinking more like Brazilians but I guess this is also possible. In the end, it's almost impossible to say because it depends on many different factors. One factor is certainly genetics: which traits are dominant, which are recessive. Another factor is genome engineering. For example: will people start to influence how we look buy interfering with science? Another factor is natural selection: which traits will be necessary/helpful and which won't be? And I'm sure there are other factors to this... I'm not an anthropologist ;-).
      The natural selection factor will probably have the smallest influence because evolution just doesn't work that fast. But maybe in 10,000 years or 100,000 years, evolution might have dramatically changed the way humans look.

  • Rasism is just another illusion of difference. Don't get me wrong, someone dark skinned is obviously physically different than me, but it's not a difference in worth. What causes so much conflict between people is that we think we ARE our differences. As long as we think we ARE our EXPERINECE there will be conflict. Nationalities, religions, diets - as long as we strongly identify as being something that others aren't, there's conflict.
    Black people think they are their race. White people think they are their race. We aren't. We experience it. The absurdity is that we hate on each other for having a different experience.
    Hate based on such dumb things will obviously change if there's just one race, but manifest in other areas anyways.

    We must realize that we are all one. One clan of lives, experiencing. Animals, all people, plants, we all live - and that makes us all be in a shared situation. We are all in this together - life.

You can't control what people think and feel. I don't support racists, but they have the right to say what they want, thats the point that anyone no matter how ridiculous can say what they want. If they act on it, that can be punishable.

  • No because Dark skin is a dominant trait and light skin is a recessive meaning that no matter what you do their will always be people with dark skin and others with light skin. You can reduce the ratio but you can't remove the genes, same with blue eyes, its recessive and as such if both parents have a recessive gene for it then their is a high probability of the child having blue eyes, that never goes away so while the ratio of people with blues eyes may not be high it will still have the same chances of occurring no matter how intermixed people become. The other issue is that in order for people to be one race we would have to constantly be introducing new people as even if you could introduce one "mixed"(we are all mixed technically) race into a region, eventually it will with limited gene pool and environmental factors become a separate group with its own unique genetic traits. You would have to constantly force different groups into the region over and over again to ensure every one stays mixed which would be highly impractical and unlikely. As for racism, their is minimal racism in the world today, its often over stated (to an extreme) however racism will never go away because the issue isn't race (scientifically speaking their is no such thing as race) its tribalism. We naturally gravitate to groups with similar cultures and people who look similar to us. Notice how subgroups dress the same, use similar terms etc?(like punk rockers, metal heads, business men and political groups) That's because we gravitate to similarity so the issue isn't race its tribalism and that's genetic so its not really going anywhere, the only thing that can be done is to be aware of it.

Mix cultures but dont blend them all into one that just destroys all the cultures and history from before ya know? However, that being said, if humans were to become a monorace, Im sure we'd still be able to find something to be racist about. Racism is less about wanting to hurt another race than it is about wanting your own race to feel better. Thus, if someone wants to feel better than another bc of their race, they will find a way. Maybe eye color or heritage, who knows. Racism or anything like it will never go away thats a part of human nature.

Especially when considering an atavism can occur at any point making a race that was long to believed to be gone to come back. Even in the hypothetical that there was only one race us humans will find something else to discriminate against. We, as a species, have an innate sense of being better. We, as a species, will always find something wrong with another to make ourselves appear better/superior the other. There may rise a culture where straight hair is the desired trait while curly haired individuals are 2nd class citizens and in another culture on the other side of the planet the reverse could be true.

Look at cases of couples who had twins where one looks white and the other looks black. I think race is an illusion to a huge degree but many people can't wrap their minds around it.

  • There's already a mono "race".. there are different variations within the human race.. You're talkin about people perceiving the human race as a mono race because we would all look almost completely similar.. Which cannot happen because of the variation in human beings.. It continues to create more variation.. If you wanna go that route though.. Humans have been intermixing since the beginning, so yeah..

  • world is too big. the whole idea of 'race' is simply a byproduct of differing environmental factors influencing the genetic makeup of different groups of people, largely based on region. If free international travel was ever to become a thing, sure, we would all meld into one race. But until then, distance is too big of a factor.

  • Depends how long of a future we are talking about. If we are talking 50 years then no. If 300 years then probably yes. Though 300 years doesn't look realistic to the simple question of: will the human race even exist considering what kind of technological power and population size is going to ensue

  • don't think so... fear the unknown... the common unite, the differences divide... if the race goes out the windows then there will still be the professions, wealth , influence, political affiliation, ideological affiliation, etc... a different perspective creates a different belief, a different belief creates a disagreement, a disagreement creates a divide. and the divide creates ignorance/tolerance/conflict
    ... by the way the question can be translated to "if the symptom is treated , would be the cause treated too?"
    (((tired-maybe nonsense)))

  • mono race is possible. And as we grow our dna adapts the stronger traits of either of our parents.. this way.. as interrelations are mixing different races.. only the stronger traits of each race will survive in the end thus making humans perfect and it will theoretically remove all DNA flaws.. but this will take many centuries to accomplish.
