|Malfeasance?! Haha...well, I suppose I'll try to make the most of it. |
Now seriously, Tibor, you can't really believe as a generalization that it's now "nearly impossible to distinguish people who fit various racial categories". The proportion of people who are so intermixed that their racial makeup is not apparent is small, and it is not difficult to distinguish such individuals from those who are visibly black, white, oriental, etc. Appeals to ignorance won't invalidate racial categories, and intermixing won't for thousands of years, if ever.
Skin color has no relevance to rights, I agree. But it does have relevance to the probability of your rights being violated. As Heather MacDonald of the Manhattan Institute reports:
"The face of violent crime in New York, in other words, like in every other large American city, is almost exclusively black and brown... Blacks committed 80 percent of all shootings in the first half of 2009. Together, blacks and Hispanics committed 98 percent of all shootings. Blacks committed nearly 70 percent of all robberies. Whites, by contrast, committed 5 percent of all violent crimes in the first half of 2009, though they are 35 percent of the city’s population"
