The concept of race cannot be defined by biology – racial categories and how to distinguish a person’s race are determined by personal opinion. Nevertheless, racism negatively effects the health and biology of people of color. Further, ignoring race does not make racism go away. It is through education and understanding biology that we can begin to breakdown misconceptions about race. (Integrating Concepts in Biology by Campbell et al., 2020)
