Why do I avoid discussing race?

Two words in my six could easily be changed: “I” to “we” and “avoid” to “fear”. The “I” is obviously more personal, the “we” more descriptive of the world in which I think we live.

    It should not be discussed anyway. I know we obviously don’t live in a “perfect world” where people can live happily without dividing ourselves by race, but honestly, it shouldn’t hold the amount of social significance it has today. Race is a “social tool” humans use to make ourselves feel “unique” even though under the color and despite a few genetic variations, we’re all still human.
