You're being willfully ignorant and you know it.  Go into any
school lunchroom in any school in the United States that has any
ethnic diversity at all, and you'll instantly see that "tribal"
differences and "tribal" differentiation are the norm, not some
foreign hard-to-imagine concept in a fully integrated melting
pot.  That's just silly.

Are we doing a lot better than declaring war on each other on a
regular basis?  Most places, yes.  Are we anywhere near being
blind to such differences?  Of course not.
