Parents across the United States have been refraining their children from getting vaccinations. In September of 2016, a study came out that probed parents on why they are or are not vaccinating their children, are they solely thinking about their child’s health, or the health of the nation?

Physician assisted suicide has been a huge issue in the medical world. For years the American Medical Association has stood its ground for prohibiting physician assisted suicide, but recently they have made the decision to allow it for those who seek it. If a person is consciously sane, or has legal documents that someone can decide their fate, just like a Do Not Resuscitate form, then I think it is completely reasonable for a person to be able to end their life if their future only holds pain and suffering.

For centuries, race was believed to be a legit basis for the social classification of groups. Although it is scientifically proven that race does not exist in the human genome, people still choose to believe it is real.

As stated in class, the dominant group imposes the concept of race because it benefits them. Because of this, people are negatively affected by this social concept.

When people lay their eyes on me, they can clearly see I’m not Caucasian. When I was a kid, I didn’t realize people are curious about my ethnicity background, because during my middle school, half of the students were Asian. Therefore, I would rarely get the question “Where are you from?” since I was born in Canada, until I got to high school. We weren’t really “visibly” diverse, so each time I meet someone new they will ask the question, and I would give them a short and innocent answer “Here”.
