Cupid's arrow is causing racism to lessen in the USA through intermarriage.

By making love and not war, the American people are now causing more racial harmony than American politicians.

America's contemporary politicians are adept at causing wars. And wars with foreigners do nothing to increase racial/ethnic harmony.

Identity politics in the USA based on race will fade in importance as time progresses. Intermarriage will make race/ethnicity be less of an identity marker.

Some problems fade in importance without the intervention of politicians.

Victor Davis Hanson wrote in his essay The End Of Identity Politics:

What is the future of diversity politics after the 2016 election? Uncertain at best—and for a variety of reasons.

One, intermarriage and integration are still common. Overall, about 15 percent of all marriages each year are interracial, and the rates are highest for Asians and Latinos. Forty percent of Asian women marry men of another race—one quarter of African-American males do, as well—and over a quarter of all Latinos marry someone non-Latino.

Identity politics hinges on perceptible racial or ethnic solidarity, but citizens are increasingly a mixture of various races and do not always categorize themselves as “non-white.” Without DNA badges, it will be increasingly problematic to keep racial pedigrees straight. And sometimes the efforts to do so reach the point of caricature and inauthenticity, through exaggerated accent marks, verbal trills, voice modulations, and nomenclature hyphenation. One reason why diversity activists sound shrill is their fear that homogenization is unrelenting.[1]

Fact: Multiracial marriages are increasing in the United States as part of a longstanding trend

The rate of intermarriage is increasing in the USA and this is a longstanding trend.[2]

According to the Pew Research Center:

In 2015, 17% of all U.S. newlyweds had a spouse of a different race or ethnicity, marking more than a fivefold increase since 1967, when 3% of newlyweds were intermarried, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. The most dramatic increases in intermarriage have occurred among black newlyweds. Since 1980, the share who married someone of a different race or ethnicity has more than tripled from 5% to 18%. White newlyweds, too, have experienced a rapid increase in intermarriage, with rates rising from 4% to 11%. However, despite this increase, they remain the least likely of all major racial or ethnic groups to marry someone of a different race or ethnicity. Asian and Hispanic newlyweds are by far the most likely to intermarry in the U.S. About three-in-ten Asian newlyweds3 (29%) did so in 2015, and the share was 27% among recently married Hispanics. For these groups, intermarriage is even more prevalent among the U.S. born: 39% of U.S.-born Hispanic newlyweds and almost half (46%) of U.S.-born Asian newlyweds have a spouse of a different race or ethnicity.[3]

Fact: Barack Obama, who was multiracial, was elected President of the United States twice.

Cupid's arrow is causing the importance of race/ethnicity to lessen in the USA through intermarriage. By making love and not war, the American people are now causing more racial harmony than American politicians. America's contemporary politicians are adept at causing wars. And wars with foreigners do nothing to increase racial/ethnic harmony.

Identity politics in the USA based on race will fade in importance as time progresses. Intermarriage will make race/ethnicity be less of an identity marker. Some problems fade in importance without the intervention of politicians.

Behold! A taste of the future!

Remote work and why it can lessen the importance of race/ethnicity in the workplace

Post coronavirus pandemic remote work isn't going away as it is more cost-efficient for companies.

Remote work can help make racial issues diminish in importance for companies.[4]

"A big reason is that Black workers face a more negative in-person workplace environment: When working from home, 64% reported being better able to manage stress, and 50% reported an increase in feelings of belonging at their organization. As a friend told me, “I know the pandemic is awful, but remote work is been silver lining for me. It’s exhausting, having to deal with white people day after day. This is just such a welcome break.” The water cooler is great for some; not others." - Don’t Lose the Democratizing Effect of Remote Work by Joan C. Williams, Rachel M. Korn, and Mikayla Boginsky, Harvard Business Review, August 04, 2021[5]

American government policy on abortion and its effect on the Black community

According to Cybercast News Service: "An analysis by the Cybercast News Service compared the location of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with population data from the U.S. Census in 2000. The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities."[6]

"Each day 1,786 African American children are aborted." According to the U.S. Census of 2006, African Americans are at 1.96 birth rate which is beneath the replacement level of 2.1.[7] At the continued rate, racism by abortion will decimate the black population of the U.S.

According to writer George Grant, the author of Killing Angel: "During the 1980s when Planned Parenthood shifted its focus from community-based clinics to school-based clinics, it again targeted inner-city minority neighborhoods...Of the more than 100 school-based clinics that have opened nationwide in the last decade [1980s], none has been at substantially all-white schools....None has been at suburban middle-class schools. All have been at black, minority or ethnic schools.” [8]

Planned Parenthood itself reported that its abortions on minorities in 1991 were 42.7% of its total abortions.[9] However, during that time period, minorities comprised only 19.7% of the U.S. population.[9]

According to Cybercast News Service: "An analysis by the Cybercast News Service compared the location of Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with population data from the U.S. Census in 2000. The results appear to bolster the charge that the organization targets black communities."[6]

According to the Open Journal of Preventive Medicine in June 2016, abortion was the cause of death of 61% of Black Americans.[10]

The future: Not a hospitable place for social justice warriors

Daniel Greenfield wrote about the phenomenon of social justice warriors (SJWs) at Frontpage Magazine: "Social justice warriors use the language of civil rights to assert their private victimhood identity. This can range from the simple, race and gender, to a list of dozens of sexual identities, psychological disorders and survivor of assorted traumas. And let’s not forget disabilities (real or imagined) and morbid obesity."[11]

As can be seen in this essay, the importance of race/ethnicity will lesson as time goes on due to racial/ethnic intermarriage.

SJWs droning on and on about ableism

Many social justice warriors drone on and on about "ableism". As far as physical injuries/sicknesses and work, rapid automation in the workplace is reducing the importance of physicality at the workplace. Robots are even in some homes as well.

But what about people choosing their future mates and the issue of ableism? Less attractive people tend to marry less attractive people. The same can apply in various cases to the issue of those who have physical injuries/sicknesses (And this will be even more so as the importance of physicality as far as work diminishes. More people will be able to be breadwinners to their families). Also, in the future people with physical injuries and sicknesses will be able to do more despite any physical injuries/sickness. For example, artificial limbs have increased their utility as time has progressed. Wheelchairs have improved over the years and now there are motorized scooters. There is someone out there for everyone - especially in the future when the world will have more people, greater automation and improved technology for people with injuries and sicknesses!

Stephen Hawking was married twice. He was married to his first wife, Jane, for more than 25 years. The couple has three children - Robert, Tim and Lucy.

Jane and Stephen separated in 1990, after Stephen announced he had fallen in love with Elaine Mason, one of his nurses, and moved out of the family home.
Much to the dismay of social justice warriors, sumo wrestlers care little about morbid obesity and how it affects their work prospects and dating prospects.
