As Ruth Hubbard said in our last reading, “race” does not exist biologically or genetically (Hubbard, n.d.). Although people have some differences such as skin color, eye color and hair color, etc., we all have bones and blood. Everyone needs water and foods to survive and no one has a difference. The physiological needs of Europeans and Asians are the same so people should not say that European people is more advanced than Asian. People cannot use “race” to distinguish human because everyone is equal. “Race” is in social relation right now because Asians are being expounded and exploited. Some people tread Asians in their narrow vision because they only see what they want to see. The word “race” should not be used to distinguish people, so it is in quotation marks. Reference

    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.
