With the reagents I am requesting, my students will test and compare their DNA, DNA of teachers and community members, and sequences available online. By comparing real DNA from people of different "races" they can test their misconceptions about relatedness and otherness, and see that skin color or eye shape is no predictor of what is in our genes. Our students' diversity is a true asset in this work because their classmates will be used to test their questions: are Chinese students more similar to one another more than say, Dominicans, or will their white teacher have DNA similar to other Europeans or to people from the Asian sub-continent? Using the tools of the scientific method, students will be able to see that race is something people ascribe to one another to maintain unfair power structures and prove that race has no basis in our genes or DNA. This is a powerful revelation as we debunk genetic arguments that have been made about race superiority or inferiority. In reality, we all have more in common than divides us. We are all one human race. Please donate and help my students say hashtag ISeeMe in the fight for more racial equity and in the biological careers they can access. Thank you!
