Guest: Jefferson Fish, PhD, Professor Emeritus, former Chair, former Director of Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychology, St. John's University, New York City, author, 'The Myth of Race', discusses:
--the idea that a person's race is fixed at birth (like caste in India)--the book shows how people can change their race
--the idea that the human species has biological races--this is an 18th century idea that science has shown to be false for over a half-century
--the idea that the word "race" has the same meaning in different cultures--actually, language differences prevent us from recognizing how different the concept can be. For example, a study in northeastern Brazil asked people what color they are and got 134 different answers!
