We can switch from one to another, embrace any culture we want, reject any culture we want, emulate but not parody or ridicule, all fair game, ja? Regardless of our genes, we have freedom of culture.

I agree Spike, genes, along with environmental factors like culture, diet, pollution levels, etc. etc. etc. are what what affect our development. The whole effort to define ‘races’ is actually an effort to deny environmental factors.
Not parody, not ridicule? That’s a tricky question for me actually, depends on power dynamics, threat levels, my intent, their (perceived) intent, and probably more factors….
Mocking red hats who are crying about getting pepper sprayed on Jan 6. when other groups would have been mowed down with machine gun fire? Ya, that’s ok with me.
