1. Discuss a misconception that you had about race that this website helped clear up.

2. According to the website, what is the biological difference between people of different races? How does their DNA differ?

Now that I think about it, except for some asians, you can not call them yellow people, like a lot of people do. They are as white as white people, and I didn't know that they could be considered white too.

There is no biological difference between people from different races, although white people have blond hair and black people don't... etc. this means that our race is affected by the place where we live. If you live in the ecuator you are not going to be white as snow because your skin needs o be protected. Our skin colour, form of the eyes... indicates who our ancestors where and the places where they lived, because of the different climates around the world Their DNA doesn't differ at all, it is the same as any other human being, it just has different characteriste for each individual.

1. I never judge people by their color just by the things they do. This website help me prove my point that there is no difference between races cept for where we come from.
2. According to the website there is no difference in the dna the only difference is where they come from if their ancestors stayed close to the equater their skin would be darker than the ancestors who moved away from the equator

I agree with you but unfortunattely there is people that will never understand this simple concept. We are all equal and we all have to be treated equally no mater what.

Of course I clicked yes, and was surprised to see that it said "partly true". Now I see that it isnt just a stereotype.

It is sort of true, but white people get cold too, like everybody else:) although is cool to know that there is a scientific explanation for the stereotype.

1. At first, I thought that famous saying that Kenyans were naturally faster runners than other runners was false. But now, I seem to have been proven wrong. Now I know that Kenyans ARE faster, and that I'm not being racist for saying it. Very Happy .

2. The biological difference is mutations in the DNA structure. Every person has a different type of DNA. It can change things like how we look, our risks of diseases, how much "brain power" we have, etc. But there is no different DNA structure for every race.

i thought kenyans were faster because of the environment...but apparently its something else i cant remember right now

-DNA doesnt differ for any race. i always thought it did... hmmm.

I thought that DNA differentiated race also, until I read the articles. And boy, was I changed after reading this. I also didn't know that Asians and Europeans had such similar qualities either. This entire article was extremely eye- opening about the dirrerent races and DNA and color and stuff.

According to the website, DNA doesn't differ people from race.

I never knew that Asians were better at gumnastics because of that. At first, before I read this, I thought it was just a stereotype just like Kenyans running faster than other people. But know I know that I'm not being racist by saying that. lol. And you're right, Dna doesn't differ races at all, just people.

i never knew that white and asian people were so closely related like i knew by skin tone but with the variation comparisons it made it clear

2. According to the website, what is the biological difference between people of different races? How does their DNA differ?
the dna does not differ from any race

#question : How are they so closely related ? I mean i know its a fact but whats the details and explanation behind it ?

Now I dont feel to bad about saying only white people wear flip flops and shorts in the winter. Although maybe one or two black people might do it, you mostly see whites in that type of attire. Its now good to now that its really not a sterotype.

One misconception that i had was the Latinos were better baseball players due to the fact it originated from their culture...

2. According to the website, what is the biological difference between people of different races? How does their DNA differ?
according to the website everyone DNA is the same...
