Before going on, please first allow me the opportunity to say that I am not prejudice and I am not racist. I grew up with school friends of a different color. I have two sisters who are married to husbands of a different color. I have nephews, nieces, and second cousins that are mixed in color. I am for civil rights and racial equality on a global scale.

Now on to the poll and discussion.

It would seem that when God put humankind on Planet Earth, assuming it was God, that God may have meant for the racial groups (i.e. ethnicities) to remain separate in their own lands. And in doing this, God could relate to them in their own ways and through their own religions.

We can see the separation of the races plainly in history. Take the Asians, for instance. They were located in one specific geographical part of the world that includes the lands of China, Japan, and Korea. Take the Arabs, for instance. They were all located in one specific geographical part of the world that includes the lands of Iraq, Iran, and Syria. This is true for all the colors throughout the whole world. And if we look at the Old Testament biblical story of the Tower of Babel, in the book of Genesis, we find that humankind attempted to unite racially and build a tower that could reach up to the heavens and God stopped it, separated them and gave each group their own land and language. So, a white land, a black land, a red land, a yellow land, and so forth.

It was only in recent times, in the past several centuries, that we see a more united world coming into play through immigration, trade, and religion. Immigration, in that people are moving to other lands. Trade, in that of people conducting business from one land to another. Religion, in that people of faith feel the need to carry their beliefs to others.

Some people and groups have called for and even attempted to separate the races through protests and acts of violence. Modern examples include that of black Muslim leader Malcolm X and the white group KKK (Ku Klux Klan).

It really does look like that most of the battles and wars throughout history have all been fought between the races. And look, as an example, at the great racial conflict that has caused a schism between Arab and Jew in the Middle East going back to Bible days and that every American president seems fixated on bringing a peaceful resolution to.

Furthermore, it is what it is now. And the races are living among one another. For example, the United States Of America has in recent years elected its first non-white President after having a history of centuries with blacks struggling to obtain the freedoms and achieve the success that whites have enjoyed. So, we must find a way to look beyond color and see each individual as a child of God and treat one another the way we would want to be treated. After all, we are ALL stuck in this round marble called Earth.

So, I am only asking this question from the standpoint of a biblical perspective. Could it be that God intended for the races to be separate? That this may have been for our own good. That God may have knew beforehand that uniting the races would only lead to acts of hatred and acts of violence? That this may be what is causing all the trouble in the world.

God intended for the races to be separate. The 10k race should always start before the 1/2 marathon. Staggered starts are God's way.

i believe what the post is saying is like keeping blacks and whites etc separate. No God created all of us to work together not all this rioting when one race has upset the other. i have friends of different races and we get along great even had a boss who from from malaysia and we got along fine he even picked on me about being short as the characters in willy wanka and the chocolate factory. i think it hurts God when we try to hurt each other that wasnt what he wanted

Look at the Tower of Babel and what God did... He is the one who separated the Races... No one else... We were to remain separate because we tend to get to smart and want to play God ourselves... This is Biblical... It is not about racism it is what God had intended...

Perhaps it was a test to see if we can evolved to a level of intelligence that can see beyond racial differences.

We are all racist to some extent whether we admit it or not. I am of African decent and I would love to live on a planet with only 1 race and I am 200% sure that others feel the same way. god made us different so why do we pretend that we are the same? You would never expect a lion to hang out with a gazelle or a chicken to hang out with an alligator or even a tiger to hang out with a house cat for that matter so why are different races trying to coexist. You may say because we are not animals but after all the killing and violence is that really true? I pray I am still alive when it is finally decided that the races will separate for good and I'm not talking about just schools or towns but entire continents. We should have never been put together in the first place that's why no matter what if we stay together race will always be a problem. And whites are NOT the problem because if they were removed from earth the remaining races would still carry on the hate of being different. STOP race mixing and segregate or in the year 3025 we will still be talking about race problems

It clearly states that all men are made from one blood which would mean their all equal. It then says that they are appointed their time (the time in which that race will be powerful) and then the bounds of their habitation. That would only mean where they are suppose to like, like the Jews within the promise land, but that ship has obviously sailed. There is no mention of race being a factor, just a "nation" or culture.

But we aren't equal.... we have approximately 12% of our population creating 78% of all violent crime.. we have in that 12% approx 70 of all males that father children leave after the child is born or before ... we have over 50% incarcerated before they are 35 yrs of age ...and a lot of them blame others for there problems ..
