DNA TEST GIVES STUDENTS ETHNIC SHOCKS:
DNA is a self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms as the main constituent of chromosomes. It is the carrier of genetic information. Mr. Harrison wasn’t your average black person he had another side to him. Students made fun of him because the color of his skin is different from theirs. He was unique in a way; he had the best of both worlds. Dr. Shiver an anthropology and genetics professor. He cotton swabbed 100 students to DNA test them to prove that not everyone is 100% pure not in this multiracial world. Natasha Best was another character in the story she was also black and white.

Some people are still stuck in the old days and they only stick to their kind. While different races are getting together and more mixed people are being born each day. I myself fall into that category so I can relate to Mr. Harrison and Ms. Best. My father is black and my mother is white. I didn’t choose a side that I wanted to be more. Some would object because if they looked at my life style and seen who I hung out with and what music I would listen to you would think otherwise. My thoughts about image one is seem to me that the man is comfortable with whom he is and it doesn’t matter what the color of your skin is as long as he is with her that’s all it matters. He’s happy and nobody is going to take that away from him. He doesn’t care what others will think or say. On the other hand the woman does care about what others will think and say. She happy but she has a lot of concern that nobody will approve. The woman will both get discouraged and walk away or she will take a stand and fight. Image two looks to me like the white man doesn’t see color, that everyone is equal. The lady hugging him doesn’t have a problem with race either. Maybe when they first met she probably felt some of way about him. Then she realized that he wasn’t out to harm her. He turned out to be ok after all. He had earned that trust. The other man and woman disapprove her hugging him, maybe that’s their daughter and they taught her to hate white people because how their parents raised them so they raised her to be the same way. It will take some time for them to grow and like the fellow but eventually they will realized that he isn’t so bad after all.
