  1. Please stop saying things that you haven’t researched, and for which you provide no evidence. I would imagine plenty of people supported abolition only as a tool for ending the war, and it didn’t pass before the south seceded. I don’t see how you can assert a wide movement and moral progress and goodwill as if a switch was flipped and everyone embraced equality.
  2. A Green/Blue/Antired pairing does not get you to white. As I said, I don’t see how you get there mixed that way. (I just noted I didn’t clarify for a three quark system earlier; that was inadvertently omitted).
  3. I assumed no such thing, and did not say anything about “natural appearance”
  4. Current at any point is in one direction, not tridimensional.
  5. Depends on how you mix them. There is no quantum theory of gravity, but QM effects owing to gravity could be observed. Atoms going through an interferometer where the paths diverge vertically would show an effect. Gravitational time dilation is seen in quantum states.
  6. Undoubtedly people feel pressure to do so, but many are fighting back against this. Your “solution” is rather extreme.
  7. For a quark, I don’t see how you could have a mixture. For a meson, it’s color/anticolor
  8. I don’t have that information. I beg you, stop. Why should any minority have to change who they are to conform to bigotry-driven “norms”?
  9. Why does there have to be a motive? It’s not like there is a final goal in mind. Yes. There are people who hate others just because of the color of their skin. They have been taught this hate by others who hate people just because of the color of their skin. You can substitute religion, gender, sexual orientation, and other attributes here. Surely you’ve noticed. You should stop digging.
  10. Offset can be a spatial term. These forces add to zero, but the addition of another force will not change the identity of the action-reaction force pairs we have identified. Equilibrium is a red herring.
  11. “move” is a poor description to use here, since it suggests a classical trajectory.
  12. You should take this advice. You can start your education by reading up on Jim Crow laws and the KKK. Minority disenfranchisement occurs to this day. Then you can revisit your position that nobody impeded blacks’ rights to vote, or ability to engage in business, etc.
  13. There were plenty of slave uprisings. They were not successful. Jim Crow begs to differ. This is incredibly ignorant. Unpacking all of this is beyond me.
  14. This doesn’t make much sense. “equal but oppositely directed forces offset between objects”?
