    Which ethnic/racial group in the United State do you believe are the LEAST UNIFIED & MOST

    DIVISIVE among themselves?  What makes this particular ethnic/racial group unable to get along w/those of their same ethnic/racial group?

    If I answer this question with anything other than 'white' then I am going to be instantly subjected to persons who will accuse me of racism.

    So I think this question is a bomb waiting to go off. We're typically not mature enough as citizens to have an academic discussion about this without folks reverting to their prejudices.

    Then again, 'white' may well work as an answer, despite 'white' not being an ethnic group by any stretch of the imagination, save for the least developed minds and imaginations.

    Good luck with your question, comrade citizen.

      That's ok, Todd.  I already know the answer but cannot reveal it.  By the way, I am Black & won't take offense at your response!

      I guess my initial answer shows me 'projecting' things onto other folks who aren't even here. I get really angry if I attempt to talk race and someone throws racism back at me for even trying.

      I guess we have to all go through it to get anywhere.

    I think you're going to get a different answer from everybody, because what they see and witness in their particular region could be vastly different from what you or I see on the day to day.

    I would honestly have to say white people are the most divided, but that's because it's kind of a given within any majority ethnic group in a nation - more people = more opportunities for dissent and varying viewpoints. I'm not sure caucasian can easily be classified as an ethnic group though....

    In my area, I see a lot of Asian rival gangs - mostly between Hmong groups and the few pockets of Cambodian, Vietnamese, and Thai groups.

    I'm not trying to come across as self-righteous or worse, "politically correct", but I can't even imagine being able to sort out "which race" because I just don't see any group of people as "all thinking alike".  I'm white and grew up seeing very few people of other races and knowing even fewer of them (none, actually, or at least not people in "personal circles".  Some people think that's a bad thing, but knowing how I've always thought and think now, I've always seen it as having the luxury of viewing people as individuals without having different races in the mix (at the time and location) to confuse the issue.  One might see that as "everyone is an individual in theory", but to have that as a background meant that I just grew up taking for granted that things were not about race.

    I think any divisions among any group of people, whether that's a race, an income level, or anything else that makes SOME people view others as "different" in some way; are caused by a lack of understanding - and also the failure on the part of some parents (past, present, whatever) to adequately help their children have priorities that amount to "the only real measure of a person is whether he's kind and tries to do the right thing, and whether he at least tries to have integrity". Kindness is free and can be taught and lived regardless of income.  It's not always convenient, but it's free.  Teaching that and a number of other things has to happen when kids are a certain age range and before they're eighteen and out on their own with no time or inclination to have long talks with a parent.

    There are a number of things that are a matter of either a vacuum that gets filled by the wrong people, or else people who (for the reasons I mentioned) are 1) misguided themselves, and 2) sharing that think they know with yet more other people.

    Too many people don't know what the don't know, so the cause of the "divide" in any group is invisible to a whole lot of people.  I know some issues can be associated more with one race than another, but I think the cause of any divide in any group goes back to that same thing (basically,  too many people not knowing how to talk to their own kids and/or people thinking kids are all grown up long before they really are (and therefore not talking to/with them when they still need that.

    Of course, garbage in/garbage out can be a problem, which is how (particularly in this increasingly complicated society) schools could step in earlier or better.

    That would be straight white males.
    They are not protected and they are preyed upon by the rest.

    White people... mostly due to math. We're the majority (for the moment anyway) and come from so many countries and ethical backgrounds that most of us are rather generic by now. Plus people keep being added to the white list. Go back 100 years and no one considered Irish or Italians white because they were Catholic. Yeah... I don't get it either. In any event we will probably pass the baton to the Hispanics next. They have a similar background as far as being from a whole ton of countries with different religions and cultures and their population is getting to the tipping point. In essence "race" encompasses too many people in each group NOT to be divisive in some way.
