I’m working on a biology discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
“Race” is a term that is still used among biologists today, but in a very different context than a century ago. Based on what you have learned so far, how would you describe the difference between a trait that is genetically inherited and a racialized trait? How does each type of trait relate to common assumptions about race outside of science? To general biological principles? Can you tell if Dr. Newland thinks that race is defined more by biology or by social context? Explain your reasoning.
