Why must we have a label

Anthony Cappellett,

Why do we identify our race at the beginning of every form we fill out? To me, it seems unimportant what box you check because whatever it is that you are there should not be any special treatment for. There is only one race and it is the human race, the amount of melanin in somebodies skin can only tell you where their ancestry goes back to but that’s it. Look and judge people based on character not where they are from or how they look. Categories divide us.
