Today’s Word: race

October 20, 2017 =========

☆  race  人種


A race is one of the major groups which human beings can be divided into according to their physical features, such as the color of their skin. If you read the English newspaper, you might see this word a lot, and another couple of words that often come up are: race relations and race riot.

Race relations are the ways in which people of different races living together in the same community behave toward one another. In every country, there is big need to develop tolerance and improve race relations, I believe.

Race riots are violent fights between people of different races living in the same community. America is experiencing a lot of these recently, especially in relation to the removal of confederate memorials, such as the race riots back in August. 

Have you heard of either of these two words before?
