APA formatted citation:

The house we live in: Race—the power of an illusion [Video file]. (2003). Retrieved from https://fod.infobase.com/PortalPlaylists.aspx?wID=…

4. The video introduces the phrase “biology is destiny”. What does that mean in the context of this video? (15 points)

a) Define social construction of race. (Hint: **Use your textbook.) (10 points)
