on racism and human nature 

While ethnic conflict is a common theme of history, it isn't human nature. This is one of those correlation and causation things. Ethnic conflict, "tribalism", "us vs. them", war itself, that sort of stuff, that isn't built into human nature. That's what happens when things have gone wrong. The natural state, the default, human nature is far more amicable.

And paleontology is shedding light on this as well. The Neanderthals were a species of humans who lived lives remarkably like our own, they built tools and boats and were as intelligent as us.

The initial consensus among paleontologists was to assume we wiped them all out, violently, with spears and dogs, because they vanished from the fossil record within 10,000 years of when we came out of Africa. This assumption, that racial differences would have caused fighting and that we killed them all... well, it turns out that's probably not what happened...

This sculpture is unique. As far as I know it's the only one in America that staged the fight to death waged by an Indian warrior and a Spanish soldier, which happened in this case during Pizarro's troop take of the Saqsaiwan fortress that defended access to Cuzco, the capital of the Inca Empire. The Indian warrior is Cahuide, the sculpture rises in Maca, a town near Arequipa, in southern Peru

I’m honestly not going to be surprised if CN just lets BA fold entirely. CN is run by some of the richest of the rich and they literally do not give a single shit about the livelihoods if anyone making under 1mil a year, much less equity or actionable change in their industry/org.
