There’s No Such Thing as Race

Regarding Stephen L. Carter Op/Ed article July 6, 2008 Affirmative Distraction, if we want to transcend race, to get past race, why don’t we just stop talking about race?

After all, science now tells us that “There’s No Such Thing as Race”, the February 8, 2008 article by Jennifer Millman ( “Science shows that 99.9 percent of our DNA is the same, according to the National Human Genome Research Institute.”

Is Senator Barack Obama black? Why would anyone categorize someone who has a father from Kenya, Africa and a so called “white” mother from Kansas as a black person? It comes from the slavery “one drop” of blood rule intending on keeping the “white” race pure.

It makes no sense in 2008, and we should all move on, and as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said in 1963 that people should “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
