Dienekes offers up a more banal explanation, that the disjunction between blue vs. brown-eyed males in dominance perception has to do with a correlation that's a holdover from past population differences which are being eliminated through admixture.

Intrapspecific competition is the norm quite often because of reproduction up to the carrying capacity. This is why I think Brian Ferguson's idea that war is a product of agriculture is highly naive; hunter-gatherers were up at their carrying capacity as well. Bernie Madoff, Free at Last.
