To the editor:
We live in interesting, yet strange times. We are a divided society, divided by race, religion, geography, education, professions values, and by the way we think and reason. In other words, we live in different worlds. Yet, we are all out of Africa and immigrants as our ancestors knew well. Every one of us traces our lineage back to a small population living on the southeast coast of Africa several thousand years ago. From this perspective, we are truly one family of mankind and less tribal than we might think. Yet, this perspective is conveniently ignored. Instead, from another perspective and the most visible today, we are hopelessly divided and tribal and this is not likely to change anytime soon. Today, increasing polarization has taken us into a new political civil war!
