The audience was dead silent when she said there is no such thing as race. 

I bet there were confused as hell. 

'Cause they and we all know racism is real, and how can racism be real without race? 

I think when we oversimplify 'race as a social construct' - only - then we confuse the hell out of people.

Disambiguation and the answer to why all this talk about race

Ice, water, and steam are all forms of water. Race also needs to be understood in different ways and through different lenses. 


The  lens of society


Society racializes us. A race label is applied to us regardless of our true ethnic heritage. 


The lens of sociology


Race is the label that the census and school applications require of us to self identify  in order to track discrimination, a requirement since the 1964 civil rights. Race (phenotype) is based on our outward appearance, whereas race (haplotype) takes into account our whole physical identity – inside and out.


The lens of medical science

Most anthropologists describe race (phenotype) as a social construct, often used to discriminate and segregate. Whereas most medical scientists, who are curing diseases, will describe race (haplotype) as real. Medical institutions collect data on self identified race (phenotype). As dangerous as the slippery slope of race-base medicine is, there has been success in finding bone marrow donors through race based donation drives for groups who find it challenging to find a bone marrow match for example.


The lens of hate


Humans are tribal by nature. Wired into us is a fear of the new that we do not understand and therefor a fear of the other. The word for this is xenophobia. Having unchecked fear and living in a society that normalizes the doctrine of white supremacy leads to the normalization of racism.

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities | AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
The growth of these cities will create a host of environmental and health problems.

 

By 2210, the global population is expected to grow from just more than 7 billion to 11.3 billion — with 87 percent of the population living in urban areas, according to a new working paper by researchers from NYU’s Marron Institute.

Most of these individuals will be in what’s now the developing world — creating a host of environmental and health problems.

If projections are correct, these new urban dwellers will require the world’s existing cities to expand six-fold to accommodate triple the residents, Richard Florida wrote in The Atlantic. Plus, the world will need 500 new “megacities” of 10 million or more, he wrote.

Unit 2, Population and Migration: Migration

This article and map explain where people of different ages and family sizes move to and from. And why they move there, whether it be a job, college, or even family matters.

This ties into unit 2 by showing where people migrate to. Which explains why people move there. Overall this is a very big concept of unit 2.
