Race as a Social Construct Rather Than Biological Fact : A 6 page paper examining the biological basis of racial categorization. There is little evidence of race as a physical and biological fact, but much evidence indeed for race as a purely social concept. One very biological fact is that we humans need to finds points of reference in everything in order to process information most efficiently. Our very mechanism of thinking and learning categorizes information, and there is no shame in categorizing people according to color—it is a physical characteristic readily discernible and requires no value judgment, though such is often superfluously attached. The shame is in elevating that need to categorize items to condone one group claiming superiority over another based on physical characteristics alone. Bibliography lists 5 sources. Soclrace.wps

Affects Of Racial Stereotypes On Society : 5 pages in length. Society has been struggling to overcome centuries of racism, racial conflicts and racial polarization.

From school children to the workplace, from the entertainment industry to the sports world, racial stereotypes are an integral part of society's framework. Indeed, a perfect society would reflect an attitude of equality -- rather than one of segregation -- toward the myriad ethnicities that exist in today's world; however, as much as humanity has moved away from racism, there have been just as many issues that have stalled its continuation.

The American Dream is still alive, but it has been replaced in the eyes of many by a sham, by that counterfeit that says that money is the only true measure of the worth of a man.

Bibliography lists 3 sources. Nesb.wps
