I need help writing a discussion board for sociology: Racial traits are among the first things we can observe about a person, yet race is socially constructed. How can this be?

Well, the whole idea of race is a social construct. There is only one race, the human race, and many different ethnicity. There is no African Race, Chinese Race, etc.. Many groups make immediate judgements on "race" based on appearance, namely, the visual difference of another person in relation to most people in their "own" - most similar - social group. But that difference in appearance does not mean a different race, a different personality, or even a different culture (e.g. many Americans look very different, and are of different ethnicity, same language, same culturally, the same "race" [humans]).
wow thats very good & long haha
can I shorten it
"racial" traits are easy to pick up precisely because they're socially constructed - by viewing ourselves as part of of a similar looking group of people, we immediately notice differences (and unfortunately often judge them).
*notice visual differences
thats perfect!
"racial" traits are easy to pick up precisely because they're socially constructed by viewing ourselves as part of of a similar looking group of people, we immediately notice visual differences and unfortunately often judge them.
For example, if you see a black cat, and a white cat - do you immediately think that you've seen two races of cats? (no - they're both cats - the cat race to you). But you did see a black colored cat, and a white colored cat. However race did not enter your mind. That's because of the human social construct of racial differences - our societies pick up on visual differences and infer something that isn't there.
woah ok thats good enough
And that's basically the theory of social constructionism ( assigning things that may not be there due to our social selves)
haha alright, good luck =)
soo is this 1 good it explains it all:"racial" traits are easy to pick up precisely because they're socially constructed by viewing ourselves as part of of a similar looking group of people, we immediately notice visual differences and unfortunately often judge them.
I would add that there is only actually one race (human), so the entire idea of differentiating "race" based on appearance must be social - it's a social concept.
good luck!
how would i add that? im confused?:/
hellp? where'd you go? excuse me
