The picture I used was of two children of different races, whether it's African-American, American, Asian, etc, it doesn't matter because it's how our society constructs them. There culture is changing because of what is around them instead of the history of their culture.

Race and Bhabha
"Social differences are not simply given to experience through an already authenticated cultural tradition; they are the signs of the emergence of community envisaged as a project – at once a vision and a construction – that takes you ‘beyond’ yourself in order to return, in a spirit of revision and reconstruction, to the political conditions of the present”
I chose this quote from Bhabha because I took it as, how you portray yourself in any culture is only based on the social characteristics of one’s culture. Although it does play a part, it isn’t based on just that. Who you are is based on multiple factors and the culture behind race, gender, etc is only one contributing factor.
