Carried by all, heavier for some.


I wanted to emphasize that race is something we all have. Humans classify each other naturally, and as such we can all identify as one or more races, and others will also try to identify us regardless of whether we want them to or not. However, different races are treated very differently. Looking like you belong to one race can give you numerous privileges, such as access to better jobs, better pay, etc, while looking like you belong to other races can have the opposite effect. Race is something that is a part of us all, but it affects each of us differently, and it is crucial that we recognize these disparities in order to combat racial discrimination.
