De facto internal borders are based on race, ethnicity, religion, ideology, and social status, just as hard borders

La Raza is an internal border. The Congressional Black Caucus is an internal border.
Journalism is an internal border (80-90% of journalists are registered Democrats). Cosmopolitan elites are an internal border. Schools are an internal border (ever notice how students congregate in a lunchroom cafeteria? How about the quickness with which urban white elites set off for the decidedly less diverse suburbs when the kids reach schooling age?). J-Date is an internal border. NASCAR is an internal border. Libertardian blogs are an internal border. Gay Pride and Puerto Rican Day parades are internal borders. Diversity Proximity = War | Chateau Heartiste

Your Say

Our little friends in the animal world can teach us a lesson or two.
We don't see deer hanging around with cows, pigs all chummy with moose, bears and wolves, uh uh,
chickens flying around with hawks. Oh, wait a minute chickens can't fly. They are great jumpers.

So if I like Polish polka people that's who I will hang around with. Another person might like South American cooks, someone else really digs Irish beer drinkers.
"... Race, ethnicity, religion, ideology, and social status ..." are perfectly valid reasons to like some folks and dislike others.
What's the big deal? We been doing this since back in the cave days, now all of a sudden we discover it and go all apeshit?
C'mon, don't we have more important things to worry about?
It's like back in grade school "teacher, teacher, Johnnie's looking at me" or "boo hoo, Susie didn't sit with me at lunch."

Really, time to put our grown up pants on.
I don't like him because he's Black, he don't like me because I'm White.
Big fucking deal.
