I think there is a universal truth that people generally tend to associate with people who are similar to themselves. If you are black and living in a mostly white society, then you will be seen as different and will feel like an outsider. Even if nobody consciously feels any malice towards you. It is just human nature. The same is true if you are the only white guy in Korea. No matter what you do, you will still be the outsider. It's not just race either, there are also studies showing that people are self-segregating themselves based on political beliefs, where more liberal people are gravitating to coastal urban areas, and more conservative people gravitating to rural "flyover" areas, which is further increasing the divide in the country. But it's because people prefer to live, work, and play with people who are similar to themselves.

We like to say that diversity is a strength, but two countries being similar, you actually see less crime and conflict in those that are less diverse. Obviously this doesn't hold up if you are comparing two places with vastly different standards of living. America is actually doing fairly well, considering the very high level of diversity compared to many places.

White Privilege

People should embrace their own heritage, race and origins. They should be proud who they are. White privilege in my opinion does not exist. But I do encourage whites to be proud who they are as well as any race. We shouldn't assimilate into one entity but learn to live with and embrace differences. Every race, ethnicity is special in their own way and superior in their own way for someone to say every single person is the exact same does not know biology. I am hispanic, my parents are from the Dominican Republic we are very strong people and I am proud who I am. There is no institutional prejudice or racism. Set a better example for yourself and your people to better yourself and those opinions of yourself. You can't expect people to respect and trust cops if alot of cops act devious. Why should it be any different when it comes to representing who you are. You want people to see you better you give them a reason to. It doesn't come by forcing people to see things differently. It's alot easier to blame other people for your misfortunes but alot harder to take responsibility and better yourself.
