IS RACE REAL?
RACE TH E POWER OF AN ILLUSION

Approximately 50 people attended RACE: THE POWER OF ILLUSION on Saturday, April 14 and found the presentation to be very eye-opening and thought provoking.  The first episode dealt with genetics unpacked the mystery of DNA that shows there are is only one race.  The other episodes were more unsettling as they uncovered the roots of the race concept that allowed for the justification of American social inequalities. Cherry Steinwender reminded us that we all have racial biases because of social conditioning “whether it was around the kitchen table, our faith communities and institutions that teaches us who supposedly is superior and who supposedly is inferior."  Conditioning and biases continue to play a role in our society and reveal how resources, power, status and wealth are disproportionately given to white people.This  was a PBS series and can be found at RACE-The Power of an Illusion | PBS
