Like a child discipline system of 'You're not allowed to have your sweets, unless you can all play and get along with each other without arguing all
A combination of DNA from all the ethnic groups in existence would certainly go some way to proving we are getting along! (well...generally, as rape
and forced breeding could apply)
It's a good idea wylekat, and one that touches on thoughts i've harboured about the ethnicity of the human race for some time.
This is very much what you are saying i guess, but what if...we really did have a 'golden' ultra high technological human society eons ago, and
ethnicity is simply humans changing according to their surroundings in interstellar colonies?!
Imagine a star faring human species, establishing far flung colonies over millenia...changes would inevitably creep into the genome and we would
gradually develop ethnic changes among different colonies..right?
So...we spread out, start changing into our present ethnic groups until...WAR. War breaks out among the different colonies and hence among the ethnic
groups, and all hell breaks loose around the part of the galaxy our colonies are situated in.
The 'caretaker' species in our area, probably wouldn't like galactic warfare occurring one bit, and so...we are given a choice.
It's a radical choice, and one that is to be decided over the very long term.
Either get on with each other...or your whole species will cease to exist, in any of the ethnic groups.
So...'example individuals' from each of the many ethnic human groups are rounded up...taken to a 'neutral' planet and set the task of getting
along with each other.
The ultimate proof of our fulfilling our given task, and therefore prove to the 'caretakers' that we have learned our lessons and can be peaceful
and finally get along with each other, despite our differences, is twofold. One would be that we are still here, not having murdered each other, and
two would be what you are saying...an amalgam of all of the different ethnic DNA profiles into a single human race.
That could be the test.
Well, we have had a good go at failing number one...we still take every opportunity to murder each other in wars and so on...and two looks to be a
long way off as well, despite a worldwide 'multiculturalism'.
Maybe you're right...an experiment to combine all the groups would be interesting. Perhaps once detected by 'you know who', we all get to have some
sweeties, and play with the grown up's toys again!
