I totally agree with you here. One of the most important advances
technology can provide for us will be the elimination of racial and
sexual distinctions. What's the difference between a black man and
a white woman when in a matter of weeks you could change places?

If equality isn't self-evident now, it will be once any human can be
just like any other human.
