To completely get rid of racism honestly would probably take significant evolution/selective breeding/genetic engineering since I understand it's downright instinct for humans to divide the world up into categories of "My Tribe" and "Enemy Tribe".  I think there are ways to reduce it's impact or redefine tribal lines on something other then skin colour, but no short term way to eliminate it entirely.

Is it better to vote for a the candidate who's plans don't go far enough but are certain to be accomplished if they win, or the one who promises what you want but would be less likely to be able to deliver?

If he knows full well what the risks are, I'd argue that he's not stupid. If he actively wants to do it, rather than doing it in spite of being utterly terrified, I'd also argue that he's not brave. So I'd say he's most likely neither.

In your opinion, what do you think is the ultimate solution to racism?

The information I found proving that the Bible has errors in it is a huge crisis for me because the Christian God was one of my best friends, and now I am not sure if he exists in this universe. I envy my parallel self from parallel hero who lives in the parallel universe where he does exist.
So...you're an atheist in this universe but in that universe you're not?

How does that square with God being omnipotent and omniscient? Omni, Latin prefix meaning "all." As in all universes, all the time.

Also, if God is only real in the universe you made up as a setting for your fantasy story you're telling us God is imaginary then? Do go on!

One of the Discworld books, but I'm not sure which one, The Hobbit and Watership Down also rank high.

Is this guy brave or stupid?

In the latest assault on reality by the Trump administration, they're planning to declare that transgender people don't exist.

It's also fiction.

I know, it's harder for people raised religious to distinguish reality and fiction.

But remember how I said before that I was visited by my parallel self from that universe, revealing that it is true. Advanced time traveling aliens read Parallel Hero and went back in time to cause a split in the timeline to create a universe where the events of Parallel hero are true.

Yet more evidence pointing toward the conclusion of that study.

Oh boo hoo you lost your imaginary friend. Welcome to turning, what, six?

As for your parallel self, how do you know the Bible (or equivalent) in that alternate reality doesn't have contradictions?

Because Parallel Hero shows that the Christian God is real in that universe due to there being angels, Abbadon, and Lucifer in the story, so the Bible in that universe is divinely inspired.
