Think about a group you belong to, but with which you do not identify. What does this group mean to you? What examples demonstrate your lack of identification?

          As for groups I do belong to several psychological groups were I am a member, such as the APA. These groups I do identify with. One group that I do belong to are the racial groups, which make up America. However, I do not identify with one particular group. These group that represents the individuals of America mean nothing to me. Racial groups are just a means to categorize individuals by racial background or skin color. If asked my racial background I do tell or talking about myself I will mention my multiracial background, however my lack of seeing race or skin color as a means to categorize individuals by racial groups demonstrate my lack of identification. As a child and as an adult I have never used race as a means to set one individual apart from another individual. Race and skin color are unseen by me. My lack of seeing race or skin color as a means to separate the America and the world also demonstrate my lack of identification.
