Wow. Just Wow. My Cultural Anthropology class today was both amazing and infuriating at the same time. We discussed the idea of ‘race’ and its effect on how we think. The video was geared towards showing that despite how different we all look, we are more biologically/ genetically similar to each other than penguins, who all look exactly alike. Everyone was so shocked that there was really no significant genetic difference between them and the person they were sitting next to. I almost laughed.
One of the points in the video was to break the myth of black people being more athletic than white people. At one point, a girl in the video who ran track said that she heard a rumor that blacks have an extra muscle in their legs. I cringed. Do people honestly believe that we are that different?
When it was my turn to say what I learned or thought of the lesson today, I think I offended a few people by saying “I can’t believe people are stupid enough to believe that there is actually a tangible difference between them and their neighbor.” Oops.
