  • Simple, the Law of Love. until everyone lives under the Law of Love and understands what it means there will be racism of one kind or another.
  • The race-baiters like Al Sharpton will never let it die. He has no other job skills to fall back on.
  • When the instinct of "tribal exceptionalism" dies. Actually we are all as homo-sapiens one race, with regional, ethnic and cultural variations. Once i get to know someone, what is most important to me is how they relate to me and others. Eventually the color of their skin, and/or their ethnic heritage are not even a factor in gaining my respect. What I reject is a kind of absolutism in thinking and belief that makes "others" wrong. If there is a thread of mutual dialogue to explore, that's where i will relate from. This divide will most likely exist as long as our ability to misidentify as white/black, believer of this or that, superior or inferior to "other" that is different.

      But in many cases identifying as black is beneficial. There are job programs, college programs, grants available to blacks that exclude whites. And when you have the Congressional Black Caucus, you'll never see that go away.
  • For people to stop making it an issue all the time. People need to take personal responsibility for themselves and make themselves responsible for making themselves a better lot in life not expecting "the government" social programs or "others" to do it for them. Prove to the world how awesome your "group" can be by being a good example not looting stores or defrauding the government through programs. Lead by being a good example. And don't define others by their mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes. Or by looks or gender or race politics or religion. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs even if they are different from yours. But do love everyone! We are all brothers and sisters! And... I guess sometimes we fight like siblings. But that person could just as easily be you if you had been in the same situation. And many times I have been and people helped me so I try to help others as well. But I think those who claim to be Christian have the opportunity to step up and let their actions speak for them here. Does your church have a food bank or welfare program you can help with? Even if you don't have money you can donate time to serve in a homeless shelter or Childrens' Hospital. We need to get to know our neighbors (as long as its safe) and help them if we can. And don't believe anything the media tells you.
  • I like the peace sign on fingers best. :).
    • Archie Bunker
      'Cause that always works.
  • Ultimately it will be destroyed by God’s kingdom (Isaiah 2:2). Racism is one of the many methods that Satan used to distract us.
  • Nothing. There will always be one group who dislikes another group based on race. Having a preoccupation with racism is silly. It's like being preoccupied with people who hate chocolate. Sure, you may not get it, but you're not going to change them so just move forward.
    • Archie Bunker
      So we need to get rid of affirmative action and the Congressional Black Caucus, right?
  • Maybe someday people will all be mostly genetically homogeneous. Even then, people will likely just focus more on whatever traits still vary. So, I doubt it ever will go away completely. Racism, in terms of the belief that one's own race is superior to one or more others, does seem to be less blatant than it used to be; however, people will always believe that they are more important to themselves than other people are, so there is already a presupposed step down the path that ends at full-on racism.
    • Archie Bunker
      Not to mention the "professional victims" due to their race. As I said above, the race-baiters will never let that go away.
  • The end of humanity itself.
  • "Racism" has been since the beginning. But there is only one race and it is the human race. So we can start saying culturalism instead. To answer: it will be when Jesus comes back.
    • Archie Bunker
      Groups like the Action Network and the NAACP won't let it change. They need the idea of racism to generate revenue. And when you have people sucking up to them, like pretty much all the 2020 Dem candidates, they'll keep it in the spotlight. When folks stop separating themselves by race, that'll be a good start. But you'll never get rid of BET, the Image Awards, the Congressional Black Caucus and the United Negro College Fund.
    • Rick Myres
      You are right about all that.
    • mushroom
      Xavier University in New Orleans is a member of the United Negro College Fund, and its students may be considered eligible for their scholarships based on need, achievement and so forth. About one-quarter of its students are not Black.
    • Linda Joy
      Do they have an internet program?
    • Archie Bunker
      'shroom, then why have a United Negro College Fund? Why have "historically black colleges?" Why have affirmative action?
  • Racism exists the whole world over, and there is really only one thing that could put an end to it completely. As much as I don't like the answer .... it's an all out nuclear world war. The kind that will end all things human.
  • hopefully god will
  • In a world were racism is far from dead, there is one biological race in the biblical perspective. (Genesis 1:27) It is confirmed by scientific studies on the "human genome." The way to put an end to racism is to reflect God's light until His return. 1 John 2:9 "Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness."
  • Enlightenment
  • Human extinction. Even if we looked identical, we'd find another way to separate human groups into us vs. them. No matter what, there will be some form of bigotry, no matter how it has to be invented. It is part of human nature.

  • If you come back to Answerbag and ask 6 questions every hour! Are you up for the mission, Wakko? I'll let you stay on top of me (on the leader board, of course! ;-) ;-) ;p;P for at least one week. I won't ask questions. I will answer them, though. Please?
    • Wakko
      Nah, I like you on top of things. xD
    • Linda Joy
      Good to know you're still alive! I miss your questions and answers though!
  • When the world as we know it ends and Christ comes back to set up His kingdom on it. The devil and his minions have to leave in order for evil to be fully extinguished.
    • Archie Bunker
      And until then?
  • When were all one color
    • Archie Bunker
      That's not gonna happen.
