Separation?

Part of a comment I read today:
I am certain that whoever that creator being was didn’t foresee that we would begin to separate ourselves from each other by defining our race, creed, language, nationality etc.
I'm thinking there was a time when the Creator actually caused separation - by confounding their language.
Gen 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Now, I'm not saying that looking for differences, or discriminating against people because they are different than we are is right.  It was just what struck me when I read the comment.
