Description

Abstract

In this paper I critically explore the role race has played in my personal life. Whether the events portrayed paint me in a light of perfection or not is not the issue at hand, but how the misperceptions of society in regard to race can easily sway the uninformed mind is essential to understand. The goal of this paper is to show how “race” is socially constructed and is not some inherent characteristic that separates us from one another. In becoming aware of this reality we can free ourselves from being prejudicial and racist, and begin to see people for who they truly are and not what we have been told to think they are.
