What would the world be like if the issue with skin color was replaced with an issue about some other biological thing...like hair color?
Basically what if we lived in a world wear "race' was determined by hair color and not skin?
What reason would people have for making this definition?
The world is divided into different groups based on whether they have blonde, brown, red and black hair. Hair dye is looked down upon and outlawed for awhile I'd imagine.
(A note: even permanent hair dye isn't permanent you still have to redo it every few months. I've tried. My hair was red for like half a year before it started eating too much into my funds and I didn't want to bother with it anymore.)
How would civil right problems be different. How would they be similar?
Help with fleshing this idea out for a serious story?
