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.

Unformatted text preview: The term “ethnicity” to me means what background you are. This could range from your heritage such as Irish, African American, Hispanic, or Asian. This could also mean what religion you are such as Christian, Pagan, Buddha, or Baptist. People are also judged on these factors as well. Everyone is judged in one form or another by everyone else. It shouldn’t be this way, but sadly it is. Today in America, we have so many different walks of life, so many backgrounds, personalities, and heritages. We are made to think we should be one way or another to be able to “fit in”. 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....

    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.
