You will never address this, of course, but race is significant in that
the ONLY countries which are to become "multiracial' are those which are
now white majority. EVERY country which is now white majority is to
become 'multiracial". You talk of a multiracial France and a
multiracial Australia and multiracial Finland, but it's Africa for the
Africans and Asia for the Asians.
Your aim is a racially Asian Asia, a racially African Africa, and for
all white majority countries to be turned in to an ugly brown soup.
Of course, it just HAPPENS that everything you say is leads to that
conclusion, right?
