In order to achieve a social and economic equality, we need to change the core of humanity.

Premised under Darwin, life and more specifically humanity is based on propagation. Racism i contend, at the core, is self-preservation and the propagation of a unique species. Dilution of a gene pool allows the eventual eradication of a trait or group; as such in order to achieve equality we need to change the reason for being.
For thousands of years, human lived long enough to propagate then died. This allowed for the continuation of the gene pool .Though certain traits were eliminated, the overall structure was maintained (black skinned tone, white skin tone, language structure) continued to thrive .
However human curiosity allowed to obsess and then experiment on what’s was beyond the horizon. However our base code still maintains an innate routine that calls for self preservation. This interns manifests itself as sub-groups (tribes, race, language etc.).
To achieve the third wave of human evolution, we need to define a new reason of being. The basis of why we exist needs to shift from propagation of the species to enlightenment. Am not sure how to change this base code, but a wise man said to know and define a problem is the first step to having a solution.

    Feb 16 2013: Social and economic equality ... wasn't that Marx.

    I have no idea where you are going or want to go with this "idea" ... what is the idea?

    This appears to be based on race ... but the title suggests that the 1% argument also.

    I need to know and define your idea to suggest a solution.
