I think racism is wrong - but acknowledging different races and cultures is not - so if the 'race term' is used to do that, it is fine.
That is not divisive.



I didn't mention culture.
I disgree entirely with the rest of your post.

Different countries of birth have and instill very different values on some and those usually do not mix very well in many cases as I witnessed personally with a relative who married out of race and values. It goes right back to my earlier post of the person and where they are from. Most of my close friends are from other lands by birth, now legal citizens. We would certainly have food issues.

For me if my child loved the person it wouldn't matter at all. It would be interesting to learn of there cultures.

That is culture - not race.
