   Ruz-Mora 1 Jorge Ruz-Mora Jill Bergkamp ENC 1102 25 April 2010 One Race: Human Race is a socially constructed grouping composed of people who share biologically transmitted traits that members of a society consider important. Race is socially constructed because it varies depending on the culture and time that it is being analyzed. In today’s world, intermarriage between persons of different races is 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 Daniel Gilbert’s essay “Reporting Live from Tomorrow” he explains how individuals can make better decisions about their future if they base them on other people’s experiences . James Surowiecki says in his essay “Committees, Juries, and Teams” that diverse small groups can make beneficiary decisions if they are oriented properly. In addition, in Steve Olson’s essay “End of Race: Hawaii and the Mixing of Peoples” he talks about how intermarriage has almost eradicated the concept of race, using Hawaii as an example. It would be ignorant to say that race has ended when clearly there are acts of racial hatred being committed all over the world, but if there is cooperation it can be possible to end race .

The intermarriage of numerous people from different parts of the world creates 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. If individuals have a link to various races, through marriage they will not worry so much about race because they are connected to many races. The more interconnected relationships are, the harder it will become for people to identify themselves as part of only one particular race. A perfect example of how the marriage of individuals of different races can contribute to the end of race is Hawaii. Hawaii is filled with individuals that are so racially mixed they do not know what race to identify with. All these individuals of mixed ancestry live in what seems to be harmony. The rest of the world should use Hawaii as an example to try and stop the racial hatred that damages so many lives. Steve Olson expresses in his essay, “The rapid growth of interracial marriages in the United States and elsewhere marks a new phase in the genetic history of humanity” (124). Interracial marriages
