Why I like modernity.

Because I can go to a meeting at work, and I can be the only white guy there. Because I can go to the bagel shop and get a Hindu bagel. Because I don't have to live in the Italian neighborhood or the Jewish neighborhood or the Black neighborhood; I can live in just "a" neighborhood. Because when people can overcome, overlook, or otherwise get rid of all their many biases, human interaction becomes a whole lot more interesting and fulfilling.
