  1. Have you ever read the literature on ethnic conflict? I have written my Masters thesis about it and was totally fascinated how very small clues can grow into an “ethnic divide”. E.g.: One country has a richer north and a poor south: The southeners are wearing black hats and often this small difference results in an ethnic division – of course the real reason is relative wealth, but everything which cann be used to tell apart will be used. On the other hand, if the clue is no longer useful, it will be dropped very fast.
