I dont know about tribalism but I can say i for one am not a self-loathing white man. We arrived before any form of government existed. There are exactly 0 countries in the entire world which have fully open borders. Let me guess, ...you have no skin in the game; No property, probably no children and you wish to bestow upon my family your selfless idealogies like open borders despite the health and security risks to my kin. I bet you also want to restrict my rights to protect them too. Thanks but no thanks.

Amazing the mental gymnastics we're willing to do to deny the racism (and tribalism) inherent in all people. We prefer the company of our own in general, it's how we arrived at the Nation/States we have today. Trying to erase those borders flies in the face of human nature and preferences.
