how should we react to this information when considering social change that might improve society

Our readings in Module 1 suggests that the definition of race is not only complicated from a social standpoint but a concept that has been fluid in nature (How Did Jews Become White Folks?). Conventional wisdom (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGv_hB7oNI ) would have us believe that race is simply a category determined by skin color of an individual.

How should we react to this information when considering social change that might improve society?

Terms to understand and use for Module 1: race, phenotypes, genotypes, biological race, social race, political correctness, exonyms, endonyms, ethnicity, macro society, micro society, ascribed status, achieved status
