Winning. Kobe Bryant is a better player than LeBron James because he is a proven winner. A ring rush of 5 championships, a compilation of game-winners, having the assassin mentality, leading by example, this is what gives Kobe the edge over LeBron. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are both extremely gifted basketball players who possess the talent and athleticism, allowing them to be prosperous at their profession. First of all, Kobe Bryant holds the record for most three- pointers made with twelve in one game, on January 7th, 2003 vs. the Seattle SuperSonics.
Amin Zoud Anthropology 4311 – Medical Anthropology Dr. Margaret A. Graham January 30th, 2012 Critical Summary: Why Genes Don’t Count (for Racial Differences in Health) – MAR #5 In the article, “Why Genes Don’t Count (for Racial Differences in Health), the author Alan Goodman explains how using the term “race”, when clarifying biological similarities and differences, is inadequate. It depicts race as non-useful biological concept since there is no clear distinction between racial groups. “Race” was created culturally to explain biological variation in humans, but inevitably are just factors of racism and racialization. The article explains that since there is more variation in genetics within groups than between groups, that it is wrong to attribute health inequalities to genes. The profound message throughout this section is that race is not a scientifically effective biological category, and yet it remains as a socially constructed category.
Jeremy Lin, the underdog of the NBA. His full name is Jeremy Shu-How Lin, born on August 23, 1988 to Gie Ming and Shirley Lin. His parents emigrated to ths U.S in the mid- 1970s, making him the first Asian American player of Taiwanese of decent.

The robots are becoming self-aware and technically proficient, enough so to begin to create a new version of themselves, fulfilling the traits of social Darwinism. The genetic engineering that is described as “world’s obscenity” is also considered, if not in a different framing, in “Gattaca”. In Gattaca the world has changed. Its obsession is with biological perfection and as such genetic screening and engineering is so prevalent that it is the norm. Those who are not engineered for conception are discriminated against, and rationalised as acceptable owing to the inferiority of the natural body.
1/27/12 Ethics 200-01 Dr. Maxwell Reflection Paper I would have to say I am not against white only scholarships but I am for it not for it either I am in the middle. I feel everyone should have the same opportunity to earn any scholarship. That’s including Blacks only scholarships and Hispanic only scholarships. The author states that the republicans are only doing this because they are against race-based scholarships and affirmative action. Giving out scholarships to someone because the color of their skin is keeping racism around, because it’s not fair that a person gets $2000 more dollars then another person because the color of your skin.
In our world, mankind has classified the people living on this planet by the colour of their skin. The categories that came out of that are known as races. Those who believe the race is a real biological entity argue that we still believe in it. Those who view race, not as a biological entity but as a social construction, argue that race is a figment of racist imaginations. Science, they claim, has disproved the reality of race, and only prejudice gives it validity.
Until the late 1960’s, the dominant perspective among sociologists analyzing discrimination was that prejudice and intolerance were the causes of discriminatory actions. Other observers have focused on individual racists and have seen the problem as the individual motivated by hatred of a given race other than their own. Certain areas of American life are seen as transcending racism and sports has been one of these. While it is true that the admission of blacks to the ranks of college and professional sports was slow in coming, it is also clear from an examination of college and professional teams today that blacks and whites coexist and work together on teams in nearly every sport. Yet, a closer examination shows that racism has not been eliminated from the sports world any more than it has from American life in general.
Much like religious groups, race is real but not biological in the sense that a complex array of social processes go into making a person a member of a particular religious group as holds true for race. Recognizing race as socially constructed means several things. First we must understand race is a classification system that was invented, created by human beings, and therefore man-made rather than natural. Second, we must understand race is socially created – not the work of a single individual but rather the product of masses of people who form a society. Just like language, no single person invented English, or Spanish, or Korean, but languages are real social phenomena that millions of unnamed people have shaped.
Racism is the biggest problem still in today’s society. We may think that we have resolved the situations which had arisen with racism but obviously not. Race and ethnicity refer to cultural differences. They are represented as differences in biology or heredity. Texts construct race as a natural category.
My family’s origins can be traced to multiple locations such as India, Africa and China. Here in America i notice Blacks and African-Americans are two terms that are often used interchangeably. Most surveys given in schools even have the two labeled together. Rarely do you see the black race given with any other ethnicity. This can become confusing for myself as well as many other people who come from multiple ethnicities.
