To identify is to be. We are almost there. Rachel Dolezal and Shaun King identify as black, white people identify as Indians, men identify as women, women identify as men; the list goes on. WE are all one big family, so what difference does it make. If somebody want to identify as something else; what harm can come from it?
Furthermore, some good could come of it. Breaking down barriers between groups could be fostered. If a man could identify as a women, and get preferences in hiring and promotions, why wouldn’t he grab that. If a white person could identify as an Indian and gain goodies, why not?
What could be the result of this? Maybe distinctions between groups would fall to the wayside. Why have separate groups when it doesn’t benefit you anymore. Perhaps segregation will finally end.
