Also I question the notion of increasing legislation. To remove race by legal sleight of hand opens the door for the other bugaboo we are struggling with: Gender. It would be far too easy to co-opt the strategy of leaving out sex, right after you leave out race on your application forms and ID cards.
We would normalize gender as a social construct and without Gender, what’s left? A homogenized mish mash of humanity struggling more for identity than for advancement of the human cause. Plagued by psychological problems, and clamoring for a re-direction of resources, pharmaceutical, surgical, and psychological.
Let’s not encourage that.
