Posted in politics, security by Fated Blue on November 9, 2013

Racism is a something we’ve all seen. Many people fail to consider that race isn’t a genetic class, but a synthetic classification of individuals with no scientifically variable facts. The term “Race” seemed to have stemmed from how people view other faces and ideas that we are not used or accustomed to.  In U.S. history, the definition of the label “white” has modified over time, eventually adding groups.
