Blonde Haired People Look Like Gold

That's the issue

Now that we have the movie Concussion, which highlights the upside-downness of an America built on slavery, by showing how white sports team owners organized a cover up of evidence of the high percentage of mostly African-american players who suffer permanent brain damage during their NFL careers, and we have the Candidacy Donald Trump, which highlights how it is not to hard to rile up fascist tendency in American sports fans -- it is not too hard to see a future where the people who have fallen prey to the illusions of professional sports and other forms of populism, will come together and help rehabilitate eachother, in voluntary prison, using the space freed up by the impending release of the nonviolent drug- offending 74 percent of the African-American adult male population who didn't get NFL contracts, due to the legalization of marijuana.

The voluntary prisons can experiment and come up with a way to rehabilitate caucasian sports fans from building any thing else on their perception that blonde hair looks like gold.

       This Idea appears to not be taking into account a biological thing known as "hybrid vigor". The African-Americans dominating various sports are not pure African; they are hybrids, mostly with a significant amount of Caucasian in their ancestry. We should expect hybrids to continue to dominate those sports in the future, although they may not be the only hybrid types that get involved; other types are very possible (like Asian plus Amerind).

       Hybrid vigour is one of the very few things pioneered by the welsh (along with the invention of mud, and the discovery that rain makes you wet). Their success at rugby is entirely due to the creation of a human-sheep hybrid, that not only scores tries and drop-goals but can be sheared annualy for a useful crop of wool.   

       They can be spotted farly easily, as they are significantly more intelligent than most pure-bred welsh, altho much more stupid than almost all sheep, and the majority of lichens.

       I spent some time looking for a method to bring the phrase " these...golden " to this page, but after perusal I will have to resort to referencing the story " The Star Pit " by Samuel R. Delany, and leaving you to do your own researches.

       [marked-for-deletion] no idea, rant.

       I did not much like this idea on first read. But it made me think, and lends itself to a scifi concept, and so here is a crumb to have with those fish.   

       Really what is described are monasteries. Back in those days people would voluntarily commit themselves to this regulated and harsh existence in hopes of improving themselves, and the world. The idea: a future (or present) heavily reliant on prisons. The society changes or collapses but the prisons persist, with the same hopes that monasteries had in the Dark ages.

       We already have two prison-as-monastery ideas in this category.
