A new way to see diversity
Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought " I wonder what I would look like as a different race". I always considered myself to be a person who appreciates the differences in cultures but seeing yourself as a different race really shows you that we really are more similar than we think. Seeing yourself as a different race speaks to African Americans in particular because we are more mixed than we realize. When I saw my picture as a person of full African descent I said "Wow". I thought I would look the same but I look more black. lol. But I wanted to share this with everyone because I think that we can all learn something from it and enjoy looking at the pictures as well. A few of them are actually quite comical. I posted my pictures from my face averages so you all can see how it works. I have to admit that I like my face better more black! I will be taking a poll to see which race you like better ( of your OWN face). The website is really easy to use and completely free. I will continue to post new interesting things as I come across them. Please take advantage of this website; it's really interesting! http://www.faceresearch.org/ Enjoy!
