  • Questions about "Race"

    1) How do you define 'race'?

    2) Do you think 'race' is biological or social/cultural? Why?

    3) Do you classify 'race' based on people's physical appearance?

    4) How do you classify your own race?

    5) Do you agree with this sentence: "Race is a myth; there is no such thing." Explain.


    [note: see if you can answer the questions without using Google]

    Edit: Sorry for the confusion. Race here refers to human race, like white, black, Asian, etc., not the race of running competition.

    The race is to see whoever can get someone else to do their sociology homework for free on the web wins.

    "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

          No sir. If this is for homework, I can google them right?

          I do want people's thought on this.

            "Race" is who can get from point A to point B in the shortest amount of time. There is a cultural aspect of "race" because of a sense of pride amongst humans that one group is somehow better than the other. I classify "race" based upon the feelings regarding the end. I classify my own "race" as in progress. I do not agree with your sentence, based upon the number of track and speed skating events I see on the television.

              Sorry for the confusion.

              Race in the OP refers to human race, like race of white, black, or yellow, etc., not the race of running competition.

                That small grain you eat with other foods.

                2) Do you think 'race' is biological or social/cultural? Why?
                Well since it's a plant I guess it's biological.

                3) Do you classify 'race' based on people's physical appearance?
                I guess so since they all cook it differently. The brown people like it with curry, and the people with the thin eyes like it with sweet and sour pork.

                4) How do you classify your own race?
                I usually cook it in a pot with some water until it's soft.

                5) Do you agree with this sentence: "Race is a myth; there is no such thing." Explain.
                I hope it's real, otherwise I'd be ****ed to spend all of that time boiling a myth.

                    Re: Questions about "Race"

                    Let's see if you all agree on these answers:

                    1. Race=a person's skin color/ethnicity

                    2. Both biological and social/cultural: Biological because one's race is predetermined by genetics; Social/cultural because being of a certain race, depending on how one is brought up, can affect one's behavior when they follow the expectations/traditions of their race.

                    3. Most of the time, race can be determined by one's external appearance, but there are still some rare cases where a person's appearance does not match that of a typical person of their race, so I think that race can be more accurately classified by one's family background.

                    4. I classify my race, [name your race], as people with an ancestral history from the [xxxxxxx] continent.

                    5. I agree--even though we classify each other by color or background, all humans are humans.

                              At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."
