I agree that family will always impact generations to come. Hopefully, the influence of race will begin to dwindle and eventually disappear. Culture will always be a part of who we are, but race doesn't necessarily dictate culture. I read an article about how the human race will eventually be one race. One day we will no longer be able to distinguish one race from another because we will all be a big mix of the various races that once were. Personally, I like that idea. I think it would be nice to be influenced by the culture and family only. In reality, race will continue to influence future generations until we, as a people, find a way to do away with prejudice and racism.
