RACE AND ETHNICITY 2 The term ‘race’ can mean a lot of things to many different people. For me, it simply means what you look like on the outside. Whether it be the color of your skin, eyes, hair, how short, tall, thin, fat, hairy, or bald you may be. Most people view ‘race’ simply by the color of ones skin, if they are white, black, tan, or even yellow. Unfortunately, everyone is judged by other people by they’re race. In my opinion, no matter how much of a good person you may be or how Christian you may be, we are all guilty of judging somebody by their “race”, or by their appearance. For example, when someone see’s a guy with long hair, tattoos, piercings, and a steange hair-do they may automatically think he is a bad guy or some kind of “freak”. When in reality he may a church goer just like themselves, he just expresses himself differently.

I do not think it is right or fair, and that we should be free to be who we are without being judged everyday or put down by people who think they are better then the next person. America needs a change in thinking....
