Discussion 1 part 2 While watching these two video clips, I wasn't sure how to feel about what I watching, I was more confused about the need to want to change your biological race identity. To understand how this happens or why it happens we have to understand social construction. There is so much controversy in our society about race identity, gender identity and so much more, its hard sometimes to be able to keep everything straight. Our article points out that we have to reject biologistics of race, and be more in favor of a sociohistorical concept. Racial formation was also mentioned as being a social, economic and political force that determines the importance of racial categories. So now we are leaving it up to society to make up these categories? Giving the example of the Dolezal controversy, she clearly has made society dictate her race as an option. She claims she identifies more as an African American than white.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
