A race is often referred to by the word "group." By American
tradition, people experience themselves as having a group using geographical origins and related
physical traits as criteria of membership. And they see themselves as able to corral others
into confinement within such groups without their consent. Nevertheless, some people decline to engage in race membership at all.

Decisions made by the individual as to who he belongs with or does not
belong with, emerge from a profoundly personal level of experience related to early life within the
family. This contrasts with the notion inherent in race membership, that belonging to a group can be
dictated to the individual by strangers or others to suit their own purposes, in total disregard to
the profundities of personal experience.

support for knowing that we human beings have the right and
the power to decline to engage in race membership completely and by individual choice.
