Not sure that’s real insight. A person’s skin color affects their experience growing up. They can act and sound like however they’re raised but the way others react to/treats them has a massive effect.
Sounds like the serious insight of a white guy.
I didn't say anything about other people's experience. Some fit your description. Some don't. I agreed with bdfreetuna'a comment "not that skin color is real diversity anyway" .
Skin color in and of itself is not real diversity. Experience, character, ability, background is diversity. To assume that race alone creates diversity is.... what? A judgement based on race alone?
I have lived in a black society overseas. There are countries that never experienced black slavery, and do not have that as a cultural relic. There is more diversity in the world than your limited view encompasses.Are you assuming all folks of a given race grew up in the same neighborhood, in the same country, in the same culture, and were treated in the same way? I think we can evolve past that at some point. Judging someone based on the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin has meaning in every direction, not just one. And it is a worthy goal.
