The way that countries are competing now to have the most advanced new technologies come to their countries is really blending all of us together. We can walk to Japan, Milan, New York, and London and see basically the same setting anywhere.

Perhaps one day, social life can be like this where races and people from the same background do not just "naturally" group together, because the cultural divider just disappears.
