Race in the United States
Some agencies in the U.S. government assign all people to one of four races: Native American, African American, Asian American, and Caucasian. Pose some questions to your class regarding this classification system.
- Are these four divisions the only true ones?
- How does overlap play a part in "assigning" race?
- Who might disagree with these groupings? Should there be groups?
- What would be a better system?
