    Neo and Trinity were like the token white people. that makes them racists since they'll only have sex with each other.

    they were underground, and it was dark, they were all dirty and covered in ash, but for what I noticed, they were very diverse :dunno:

    in another thread it was pointed out that the genetics that cause dark skin are dominant features, so without segregation most people would have dark skin in a few generations..

    I think thats the most likely reason, another theory though is that minorities would be more likely to reject the programming of the matrix due the the fact that they are more likely to not live as good a life within the matrix as white people.

    I thought that a good reason was because it was the 6th Zion or whatever number, that everytime the ONE picked people to breed, what was it, like 17 guys and 8 girls, that he just picked the biggest and strongest people, who tend to be black, not being racist, I'm just saying that they tend to be bigger and stronger than most races.

    that is simply incorrect biology.

    It would be more like a mixing of "colors" over the generations causing a mojority to by a "brown" without raical iniquality issuses there would be no social reason to remain "pure"
     
  14. if there was any type of evolution involved, wouldnt the people be very pale due to the lack of the sun to darken the pigments in the skin? Though it doesnt explain why black people are inherently black and the vise versa for white people.

    you are all making too much of a deal with this skin color issue. My answer is right, anything else is wrong.

    Zion is populated with people who were most likely to reject the Matrix. Who is more likely to reject the Matrix out of these options:

    1. The rich white guy with the cushy management job driving his SUV to corporate headquarters every day; or
    2. The hispanic dude living in a bad neighbourhood despite him working his arse off every day for a better life?

    Which one is more likely to refuse or question reality?

    :)

    well if you go by the first matrix and it perfection, you would reject the cushy job with the suv.

    Im right...

    That makes absolutely no sense.

    I'll make it easy for you. 0.1% of people reject the matrix (as stated in the movie). The people most likely to reject the matrix would be those dissatisfied with their lives (of which a much larger proportion would be from disadvantaged ethnic minorities).

    did not the architect say, in the perfect matrix too many people did not accept it?

    Perfection = hard to accept
    Suffering = easy to accept
     
  21. well zion is supposed to represent the human race isnt it? contrary to what you all may think the majority of the human species is not white.
