Description

Abstract

In this paper I will try to answer the questions: Why have I not embraced my Chinese heritage and chosen to have a Caucasian racial identity, even though I am of 100% Chinese blood and descent? Why am I more comfortable befriending people of another race than those of my own?

In order to answer these questions, I will explore issues of race and racism, status groups, exhibitions of deviance, and how the capitalist world-system has affected my unconscious choice of adopting a Caucasian racial identity.
