The Classification Of People Based On Their Personal Characteristics

- Racialization Beyond Blood The classification of people based on their personal characteristics is a tool used as a way of categorizing those people into varying groups. However, when these groups are created, it allows for a hierarchical system in which one group seemingly surpasses another. This happens when we use race as a classification system. The manufactured and socially constructed idea of race leads to the inevitable superiority of one race over another.
