People differentiate among one another because of racial and gender differences that exist among the people of any specific society. According to Healey (2010), “Race, along with gender, is one of the first things people notice about one another” (p. 19).
The concept of race is a social construction according to the sociologists’ view. Sociologists also believe that this social construction of race has been because of various social, political, and historical processes. Healey (2010) asserts, “As a biological concept, a race has been largely abandoned, but as a social category, race maintains a powerful influence on the way we think about one another” (p. 40). Race of a person provides the judgment about a person’s background such as nationality, culture, and the society to which the person belongs. Skin colour is one of the key factors of racial differences and people use this factor to determine the nature or characteristics of other people although it is a wrong approach towards character determination. It is because people having any specific skin colour do not have the same characteristics because of cultural differences. Characteristics of a person do not depend on the skin colour rather they depend on the society and the culture in which a person grows up. It is not possible that all Black people belonging from America and Africa possess the same nature or behavioural characteristics. Similarly, there are many behavioural differences between the American and European White community. Understanding the characteristics of people from different cultural and social backgrounds play a vital role in shaping the personal experiences of a person. Andersen and Collins (2004) found that the culture encompasses both material and symbolic components and it is one of the important dimensions of understanding human life (p. 11).
Analysis of a culture is very helpful in understanding the values and traditions of that culture. . .
