I came to realize that there are social factors such as ethnicity, gender, race, and social class that affect the way I live (McMillan, 2012). Race and Ethnicity grouped people depending on their colors and their native languages therefore I belonged to one of the many ethnic groups. I was supposed to behave differently from the people belonging to a different ethnic group.

I have to live and practice the good virtues and try as much as possible to avoid any form of discrimination regardless of their existence. Family a Social Institution.
