David Semitekol Posted over 2 years ago Media polls that identify us based on our skin color are forms of racism and segregation. Yes, I agree it is a way to categorize data, but do we need to? The main concern of course is the upcoming election, and how people focus so much on what a race will do in the country. I agree that for most purposes, categorization is important. However, when the only difference is skin color, then we must ask if it is necessary. The color of our skin should not change who we are and I think that at this point, it should simply be overlooked. The problem with looking at a skin color is that it generalizes us and our skin color does not determine anything about us. It fits us into groups, and when people are placed into general groups they tend to not feel like they are part of the larger group, America.
