Race: why?

As part of our Race Stories Project, Jing asks the question: what is race? But more importantly, why?

"I just never know that… what is race? You know, I just never understand it. Why people have, why we have, why society has to divide us. I just don’t know the reasons why. I know there are differences between us. White, black, brown, anyhow. I just don’t know why people need the categories. I just don’t understand why."
