This is a great post and you got me thinking to my self if there is such a thing as race. I believe that society has caused the typical human being into believe that race is a real thing. With todays society it is sad to say that race is shown in TV shows, movies, songs, books, and schools across the country. After reading your blog post, I am really convinced that there is no such thing as race. The only thing separating us from one another is skin color. Why should skin color determine whether or not you want to be friends with someone or sit with them at lunch, etc. Society has developed this huge concept in everyones brain that race maters. Even the government now has a classification system which is not fair. Society has impacted our generation in a wide variety of ways. We have been manipulated into categorizing everyone into a specific group due to there race. Not only has society had a big control on the way of thinking about race but to answer your question I too believe that society is making us believe other things exist. For example society has us believing that being rich is the only way to survive or fit in. I live in an average home and my parents are making normal pay and we are doing just fine. I fit in with everyone else normally. Society sucks and will continue to brainwash everyone.
I can hear out when you say that you have never had a problem with "race" or "racism" because I do not either. Growing up my cousin who is black was recently adopted into our family. Our family has also just recently adopted two babies from Puerto Rico. My family does not believe in racism and neither do I. Todays society has made it so hard for others to love one another for who they re, no matter their skin color. This post made me think about how much racism there actually is with in schools. Everyone is categorized by there skin color when it comes to how well you can play a sport or how smart you are in your classes. It is typical for Asians to be categorized as being "smart" and it is typical for black people to be "athletic". I agree that the governments classification system is ridiculous and unnecessary. There is no possible way that it is fair to anyone. I think about how my two sisters are going to have to grow up and deal with the racism throughout the schools and it breaks my heart. Everyone is different for a reason. The color of your skin shouldn't matter.
I can easily say that i agree with every point you make in your post. Society today has trained everyone into putting every race into a certain ethnic category. Weather its certain races with for example sports or jobs. It typical for black people to be stereo typed into being good at basket ball as well as how for Asians have a stereo type for being super smart. This post drew my attention because I do believe that racism is a big problem all around the world. I personally believe that everyone deserves to be loved and treated equally. It is not fair that some people get treated poorly due to their race. So I am here to tell you that I one hundred percent agree with you "race" has been categorized by society and should not exist because in the end all it is doing is hurting others.
Great choice of topic, apart from the economic and social issues, it would be really interesting a view on the political influence these groups may have and also the problem of bankers or people related to the banking system in helping these groups in all the money laundering operations. Also, what are the current and possible law enforcement measures against these groups would be a nice addition.
Can't wait to see this paper finished.
