I find it interesting how even now, in the world we live in, we still classify people into different races. I don’t get why we feel the need to do this. Being a white female, I have never experienced racism for myself, but I do have friends who have had to deal with. It still surprises me to this day that it persists in our society and continues to be an issue that must be extinguished. I don’t even think that we can categorize humans into different races because though we differ in our physical traits, they are not consistent and are irrelevant with each another (Diamond, 1994, para. 35).
