If individuals have a link to various races, then they will not worry about their race because they are part of many races. The more interconnected people are, the harder it will become for them to identify themselves as part of a particular race. A perfect example of how the intermarriage of individuals of different races can contribute to the end of race is Hawaii. Hawaii is filled with individuals that are so mixed that they do not know with what race they identify. All these individuals of mixed ancestry live in what seem to be harmony. The rest of the world should use Hawaii as an example to try and stop the racial
