<p align="center">I will be writing about how difficult it is to live with brothers and sisters of different backgrounds. When we go places and do things in public as a family, people tend to give us dirty looks and place judgement. I believe that people cannot comprehend things that are different, and it goes hand-in-hand with the inequalities visual minorities are faced with.

For the past weeks, my classmates and I have had the opportunity to learn about many things regarding “race”. From what I have learned, there is only one race and that is the human race. Humans are classified in different categories of “race” based on traits that are given to them at birth. Such as, skin color, hair texture and sometimes the opposite sex they are attracted to. Race can be defined in many different ways, but sometimes race can be looked as a prejudice for many colored people in today’s society. Race can be hard to explain most of the time because of skin color.

    Throughout the activities, discussions and the lectures, I have changed my view upon the concept of race. It is much more than the classification of skin color, eye color or hair texture. It is that race is connected to genetic or physical traits, all aimed to classify a group of people. None of which are more important than the other.
