Race: More Than Meets the Eye
Many people believe they have "gaydar," the ability to discern who is gay and who isn't based mostly on appearance and mannerisms. Even more people believe they can accurately tell what race a person is by their appearance. These are the sorts of people who will angrily tell me, "You don't LOOK like an Indian!" I don't? Well, I must...because I am!
In that vein, I offer this link:
RACE: THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION
This is a little quiz from PBS. It includes several thumbnail pictures of men and women from various races (you can see a larger picture by clicking on the thumbnails). It then invites you to put the pictures into categories: White, Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, Native American.
If you think it's going to be easy, guess again!
I myself only got seven of them right...and I missed one of the Native Americans, to boot.
Give it a try, and leave me a comment with your score!
