Watch and discuss: The Origin of Race PBS 10:15
Overview: It has been scientifically confirmed we are all 99.9% genetically similar, so why were we placed in certain racial categories? This video and the discussion following it will take a look at one aspect of that history, which is the creation of race as a social construct that drove and promoted racism, all driven by the relentless and immoral pursuit of wealth. This is just a small slice of America’s history that is often untold, or even hidden, but that impacts every aspect of life as we know it today.
