I checked it out... pretty interesting stuff...

the original notion of race as a cultural difference rather than physical difference

got stumped with some of those identification quiz... that was a mind-boggling.

I got 9 right.

But those pictures are so tiny, half the time I didn't even know if the person was male or female, much less their ethnicity.

Uh... explore the whole website...

that was the purpose of the quiz... to show us how our preconceptions of race were wrong and distorted in the first place.
