It shall present my account of how human interactions in my community have been racialized. This analysis is being undertaken in the hope of coming up with a thorough and analytical assessment of the race in relation to the community, in the hope of clearly establishing the trends and patterns of human behavior.
First and foremost, I am of Romanian, African-American, and Indian descent. As a child, our family moved around a lot and because of this, I was exposed to and I grew up in a mixed community. When, I joined the service, I was still in a mixed community – living and being exposed to Caucasians, African-Americans, Asians, Europeans, and other races. At present, I am still in a mixed community, being exposed to different races and cultural groups. Some of the members of my community look like me. My features are predominantly African-American and some of the members of my community look the way I do. My coloring is not as dark as those who are of pure African-American descent and so, I am slightly different from them in this regard. About 35 percent of my community is of African-American descent. About forty percent of the community is Caucasian and I do not look like them at all because of my stronger African-American features.
The leaders within my community are sometimes ambivalent to people like me. Most of the leaders are Caucasians (whites) and they seem to treat people who look like me with suspicion. One time, I complained with the leaders about a Caucasian neighbor who liked to play loud music at most times of the night. They spoke to the neighbor, but they did not do so with firm authority. After a few days of quiet, my neighbor resumed his loud music. In order to avoid any trouble, I just tried my best to ignore the loud antics of my neighbor.

From my experience in handling and staying with people from different racial backgrounds, I have come to appreciate that all are able to live and work together in harmony. In the United States for example, race is a subject that is sensitive and workplaces tend to be centers where racial lines are drawn.

The cities are mainly characterized by wealth, opportunities for the locals and immigrants, cultural diversity and vibrancy in development. They also host a number of homeless people and job seekers; the poverty within the cities is also significant challenge mainly caused by corruption, racial segregation, oppression and division resulting from the diversity of cultures (Gottlieb, 2007).
Racism is still practiced, in most American States, and it is only through public initiatives like these that it can be alleviated. The race brings together many citizens from different backgrounds and ethnicity. It is in this respect that, through the marathon, different people will get to interact and understand the topic on racism.
But at the same time it is also quite unimportant, as all human beings are created equal in the eyes of God and are composed of a similar anatomical framework. I am personally a Caucasian male in my early twenties with French and German heritage. During the early 1800s my ancestors traveled all across the Pacific Ocean and came to America to seek better job opportunities and education.
I remember the fear of one, Adam, from Maine, as we were lost in the 'ghetto' of Washington, D.C. He reminded me, 'I'm from an all-white state.' I was from a place where driving through black neighborhoods was an everyday occurrence. But in the New South, 'the city to busy to hate,' segregation endured.
Black and White racial identity theories examine psychological development from the level of racial rather than ethnic similarity (Crenshaw et al 1996). Consequently, various theorists have proposed group identity theories to account
uralistic, the emerging differences in the socio-cultural and religious paradigms have emerged as major issues within and outside the emerging social framework. Even now, despite laws of equality, in the developed countries like United States, racial discrimination is still
