Question description

Review the PBS website RACE – The Power of an Illusion as you prepare for this discussion. This site offers many examples of how the science of human difference contradicts ordinary ideas of race.

As we see in the readings and in this website, race is socially constructed, a system of thought and human behavior not directly based on nature, instead resulting from social ideas and practices. In other words, race exists because people believe it is real and important.

Please respond to the following:

  1. How has race been constructed in the United States?
  2. Provide a specific example of how race continues to be socially constructed.
  3. What groups are harmed, and benefit, from these constructions of race?
Your initial post for each discussion should be a minimum of 250 words. Use scholarly sources to support your responses. Include citations and references in APA style. Review the posts of your peers, focusing on the social construction process. In particular, focus on example of the ways in which race been defined.
