Has race ever crossed your mind? • What is race? • What does it mean to be biracial? • Is race an illusion? • Is there a social meaning of race? • What is a master race and who makes it?
Jazmin from The Boondocks reflects on being biracial… Who rules race? Though we live in a multi dimensional society, the social meaning of race has not been made fluid. Retrieved from: www.gocomics.com/boondocks
Embrace our differences!!!!! • We all are different, but are our differences superficial? • Race is a social meaning and there are obstacles that counteract the characteristics that make a race. • Is race determined on how we look?
Let’s share… • Race is not biological. Scientists have taken a closer look and determined that race is not solely based on genetic or biological similarities (Retrieved from PBS Documentary, “Race: The Power of an Illusion”). • As a society, we tend to have a fuzzy idea of how people around the world look.
