Race and Reality We all live in the world which classifies people into precisely defined groups Some of us can be easily identified with one group but some of us cannot Both essays Why Does My Race Matter by Yasmine Bahrani and Freedom From Choice by Brian A Courney deal with these problems problems encountered by biracial and multiracial people in todays world Being biracial is not so simple today Society forces these people to identify themselves with one ethnic group by denying other part of their ethnic background By doing so society does nothing to make their lives easier Brian Courtney says First twenty-one years of my life was a never-ending tug of war And quite honestly Im not looking forward to being drugged through the mud for the rest of my life155 Courney When he was a child he lived in a town where majority of his friends were white so he acted according to their rules But later when he came to University of Tennessee his black friends expected of him to act like one of them Brian is crucified between two totally different worlds He doesnt belong to any of them entirely While trying to please others Brian doesnt have a space to be what he really is biracial person He blames society for not acknowledging them as separate group and I agree with him Why do we have to judge people by their race Why cant we simply judge them by their personality We are doing this because it is in our genes We simply first see differences and then everything else I came in the United States four months ago and since then I didnt find any real friends because everyone first sees a stranger in me someone who is not part of their world But thats how this world works We all do that and it will be a long time until we learn to overgrow
