40. Because that's how our society has been defined
The ruling classes find it beneficial to them selves to compartmentalize us serfs into competing camps. He's black. You're gay. I'm Pagan. Apparently we're all supposed to wrestle around over who gets the golden apple, while the fat bastards at the top are busy eating the damned thing.

It's a tough thing to overcome, because it's so ingrained. We might be able to do so, but for every person who breaks out of the cage, they leave ten behind, still barking and squabbling about how their camp is more important than that camp over there, and both are more valid than yours, and blah blah blah.
