Races are different though. Take africans and europeans for example. Extremely different features and yet they themselves have their own makeup patterns. Africans have the curly short hair while europeans tend to have longer hair ( of different colors too). The facial complexions of africans and europeans are significantly different too. This is why they are different races of humans, they are indeed humans but not the same type (best way to put it).

This is a great opportunity for me to won this scholarship. I think that being a black immigrant that came to America for a better life. I am sure that may not be the first time you've heard that. But as life goes on, it wasn't easy to make it this far and work hard to be proud of who i am and have a better understanding of other races and how it has a big influence of who each other is and how it doesn't change anything in the fact that we are all born equal.

Scientifically speaking there is only one race of humans on planet earth. Our skin shade, dialect, language, religion, region from which we originated and the culture associated with those regions has nothing to do with race. Scientifically our DNA is all the same. Skin color is based on the amount of melanin that shows up in your skin and it shows in various shades based on your ancestry. Most darker skin people originate from having lived near the equator and lighter skin live further from the equator and have less contact with the sun. The melanin shows up to protect your skin from the suns harmful radiation. Nutrients available in food supply also plays a fundamental role in skin shade. There is no such thing as races of humans. It is the big lie since later 1500's early 1600's of which the lighter skinned Europeans propagated due to them feeling more superior to darker skinned people and others they met in their world travels. Since the lies inception, people have become brainwashed to it. Even on a census document you will be asked for your race. It makes a person feel special that they are classified into a certain category or type of person. Instead of race perhaps culture is a more adequate category. Perhaps if we eliminate race we'll stop making left turns and start making the right turns - Steve Parent

University of California Seeks New Standardized Test

May 27, 2020

by Izzy Hall

Across the country, both private and public institutions of higher education have announced that they will be test-optional for students applying to enter school in the fall of 2021. This policy, instituted as a response to coronavirus cancellations of standardized testing dates, comes with the caveat that it would only exist during next year’s round of admissions. But the University of California system has gone in an entirely different direction by announcing that will no longer require the SAT or ACT for all California state applicants. [...]
