<<Are you saying that we 're looking at the wrong marker !?
That the genes that we end up with are NOT important, but the
ones left out ( a kind of Apoptosis) are !?
That thus the memes we end up ( the meme of racism) is NOT
important but what it leaves behind ( flow, meanings, characte-
ristics, pressures, social orders,...) is !?
Looks to me as an obvious thought !
Following your line of thinking I would agree with the notion that
then memes " live " ' by having a life by '...but than I sway again
direction ' performative acts ' for the propagation of the meme-
as- sign for something else/ replicator.
The meme of racism has no success if NOONe is sitting on the
park bench saying " whites only ". It is an empty reminder of
something existing without its performative assumptions for what
it stands for, or can, or will.....
