Observations from class 12/8/09

1. What is the worth of a human being?

All human beings are important. One can have more importance then others but all lives are valuable. Some may say a humans worth is based on their contributions to society, how much money they make, or their material goods, but you must remember even the people with not so glamours jobs are also valuable human beings. All human beings are "worthy" no mater what gender, ethnic group, wealth, or ability.
2. Different minority groups

American Indians, Caucasians, Hispanics, African Americans, Asians, Pacific Islanders, Caribbean, Pakistani.
3. Graph of ethnicity in the United States:

4. How does a persons worth get determined in America?
In America, a persons worth us usually based on wealth and what kind of contributions to society. In America, the more money a person has the more respect they are given and people look up to them more. Also, if a person contributes in a positive way to society, they are considered to have more wealth.
