What does race mean to me? When I think of race I don’t think about skin color. I think about culture, religion, and values. Today many people do not understand what it means to have a specific culture. Even though we seem to make claims about it every day. Truth of the matter is that culture is extremely complex. Culture is learned through daily experiences and interactions with others. We think if you do not fit a certain criteria then you are of another culture or race. These things unfortunately come in between people of different cultures.
