give a simple and direct answer: No. Would the United States categorize their citizens?
people of the United States are continuously being classified. So, if indeed the United
States is one nation under God, why do we continue to sort ourselves through
unreasonable and unethical factors? The misinterpretation of race has shattered the
and assumptions that separate God?s children in hope of reforming the United States
toward true equality.
The United States is supposed to be a nation of equal beings, yet the
government, companies, and organizations in America use race in questionnaires and
answer should be the most logical choice, but still, the question of race in general, should
not be of any concern, especially for filing purposes. Despite the fact, we are haunted by
the categorization of our "ethnic background," which vaguely describes our personality.
Many other organizations prefer to ask about race, but when we inquired for our ethnic
background, we should think about how and why it would be of any concern if we are
considered equal under God. And when asked for ethnic background, we should wonder
are deceived by many organizations claiming equality when asked the questions of our
not. If we are truly equal in race, ethnic background should be of no concern to records
regarding any person for recording purposes such as forms or applications.
Unfortunately, the United States has a social defect which disregards the equality
color. But an interracial relationship is not a relationship between two different colors of the
colors, but in actuality, races were created from diverse people and environments.
person. And since a person should be judged by their personality, not the body, classifying
human beings by race remains an immoral way by reasoning.
Furthermore, categorizing races into any group is senseless because people
and so forth. It would be almost impossible to grasp each of these characteristics into
categories, therefore, classifying human beings in any way, is absurd. People classify to
simplify life into categories, but it ironically turns into confusion.
Devastating effects accompany the division of this country by race. First,
psychological effects range from low self-esteem to hatred to misjudgment. Second, social
another as the children of God. These effects, which are the major issues concerning the
social structure of the U.S. today, will persist and accumulate as long as we go on
categorizing and dividing the human race.
What is the proper role of race in our society? The role of race in our society is
humankind into the next century and in hope for more centuries to come. When we look at
how we can learn from each other.
Classing by race keeps us conscious of the color of our skin which proves to be
to the human race. In order to reverse the effects of this harmful behavior, the question of
our ethnicity should be excluded from all that determines our personality and that unfairly
divides the people as a whole. The color of the skin should not be a factor in recognizing
personality, but to acknowledge our past and our potential for unity and growth in all
nations under God.
