"We got black and a white actor in the commercial, and they're gay with an asian baby. No one can complain!"There is no longer a mass market.
The white consumer population is falling. Companies need to sell more to minorities to maintain growth. Minorities no longer want to be token add-ons to white advertising or white policies, they want their own. Blacks want black ads and policies that favor blacks, Spanish-speaking people want Spanish language programming. Advertisers tried race-mixing. This is interpreted as a conscious decision to force race mixing on the Alt-Right, but it might be a way to increase diversity (we got black and a white actor in the commercial, and they're gay with an asian baby. No one can complain!). That backfired and more people complained, plus the sheer number of them caused more people to notice that ads are social programming. - - Peak Diversity: The Mass Market Is Dead

Hey, dummies, get the language to more closely describe reality.
For people, there are no Blacks or Whites. Skin colors range between dark brown and 'albino'.
For starters, we need a DNA index to replace current outmoded colorcoded IDs.
Then, people can more accurately identify and organize with people of their choice.
Robot enforcers will then be able to treat these groups as they deserve to be treated.
I will program the robots to be Confucian -- coupling compassion with justice.

My favorites are movies and television shows which depict interracial street gangs. Once those enter the plot, I kick back and relax for some quality, socially aware horseshit.

From what I see on TV, only black hipsters eat at McDonalds. Bad food, bad clothes, bad behavior, right there on the tube. Why would I go there?

Sheeeiiit, Monty, that was my favorite effing video of all time ... Beat It, by Michael Jackson. As a GenXer I always thought that video was soooo badass. Skinny singing black dude united all races into a single dancing gang. How much better does it get than that?!
But, that was the 80's. In our current time-space continuum, it might as well have been 1200BC.
I have trained my children to behave adaptably in the this age ... sleepers until they can "get out". However, I'm just not sure how much more craziness Madison Avenue and Hollywood can impose on flyover Amerikkka. About the only thing left after televised beheadings and power pizza pedophilia is child sacrifice.
Oh, wait, they've already taken care of that. So, I'm guessing the next thing will be a reality TV show about doctors who do televised abortions. Or, maybe burning live Christians at the stake on national TV/global internet. Hell, they've pretty much already taken care of that, too, through their proxy-ISIS.
