IS RACE BASED ON GENETOICS OR SOCIAL IDENTITY?
Race is absolutely grounded on social identity rather than on genetics since all of human species derive their originality from a common ancestry from nearly all the available sources of knowledge and all disciplinary authorities of information on the onset and progress of the human family, for example religion, science, intuition and infinite knowledge of any kind. With a common origin thence, the differences thereof derived are by products of a number of amalgam processes that, ranges from nature to adaptations due to adjustments to the challenges of human survival. Thus race as an ideal is ultimately a product of social identity unlike genetical makeup of mankind.
A race though in the primordial and uncivilized societies was largely pinned on skin color and other phenotypic elements such as the color of the eyes among others. But, realistically race still owed much of its founding on a composite of shared values, common traditions, upheld aspirations and a common identity such as the national pride or dream. Besides race is inadequately subject to morphology and phenotypic observations since, interbreeding has largely affected the appearances of subsequent offspring’s thence polluting the initially subtle breeds of human species making them lack accommodation within the would be racial profiles currently avail able albeit racism is here to stay.
Mutations have enormously caused great dam age too to the denunciation of race based on the appearance of human phenomena. Since over time across epochs of human characteristic mankind has been subject to constant and consistent mutations thus being transient or rather developing a changing inherent quality that widely affects its subsequent offspring’s a appearance in the preceding generations.
In conclusion, it is imperative to affirm from the above discos that, race though most oft than not is judged ephemerally from what we see it is more realistically with what we perceive which make up our cooperate self and identity more critical than bigotry. By way of example, in the play trying to find Chinatown, Benjamin Wong and Ronnie engage in an intense debate on ethnic identity the former being a Caucasian and Asian American whilst the later is an assimilated American of Asian ancestry. Moreover, Benjamin who has a blond hair and blue eyes and Ronne who is assimilated musician appear distinct as all these are manifestations of superficial presupositios of race concept but, gladly enough their different perspectives are acknowledged on seeking to unveil the day to day identity of a Chinese American which too cements my stake in the precept above.
