Day 1:One unmemorable day I caught myself in the midst of an argument with my peers. We argued what race was " the prettiest". As sophomoric as that sounds the replies and retorts I heard that day were quite shocking. Every person in that room reported that the Caucasian or European race was in fact the most beautiful of them all. (Need I tell you that all races were present during this debate.) I furrowed my brow and bravely refuted their statement. I claimed that the African American race was the prettiest. No one agreed. No one even mention the Asian/ Pacific Islander/ Middle Eastern races. No one mentioned the Spanish/Latin races. No one even mentioned the "Mixed" races. Why did my peers believe that the most beautiful race was the Caucasian race? Could it be that the individuals that we "glamour- tize" in the media are in fact the race my peers saw as most pleasing?
