Concept of Race
What is the difference between the biological concept of race and the sociocultural concept (or construct) of race? How did the biological concept of race develop and who developed it generally? How was and is the biological concept of race used to justify the social hierarchy in the United States and in other places around the world? Is the biological concept of race biologically valid (supported by biological evidence)? Why or why not? What is non-concordance and how does it relate to the biological concept of race? Is race a real experience for people in the world today or does it no longer exist? What is the difference between race and ethnicity? What experiences have you had with race and how have your experiences likely differed from how your greatgrandparents experienced race in their lifetimes? Can and should the world live without the construct of race, while recognizing ethnicity and cultural diversity? Why or why not?
