   Ruz-Mora 1 Jorge Ruz-Mora Jill Bergkamp ENC 1102 18 March 2010 One Race: Human Race has been used as a tool to discriminate a specific group of individuals. Scientists have done a tremendous amount of research trying to prove the race of a particular person based on that persons DNA. In today’s world, intermarriage between persons of different races in very common, making the ties between humans even greater, and lessening the hate between racial groups. As a result of the mixing, it is very hard to find a person with a pure race. In Diana Taylor's essay "False Identifications: Minority Populations Mourn Diana" she explains how minorities mourned Princess Diana, even though they did not knew her.

The intermarriage of numerous people from different parts of the world creates many similarities in the DNA of all of those people. The marriage of couples of different races has become a common aspect of today’s society; it is no longer seen as an atrocity. To determine the race of a person scientist have to look at their ancestry, but how can it be determined accurately if somewhere along the lineage there was a mixing of races. Well, what if instead of trying to find what race an individual might
