How to use race in a sentence?

  1. Mike Kelly:

    Attempts by Democrats and the media to divide and define us by race are harmful. We need to elevate our level of discussion.

  2. Simms:

    The true law of the race is progress and development. Whatever civilization pauses in the march of conquest, it is overthrown by the barbarian.

  3. Mick Mulvaney:

    I've talked with Kevin about this privately but not as much publicly, wouldn't it be great to force a Democrat running in a tight race to have to put up or shut up about voting for Nancy Pelosi eight weeks before an election ? That's a really, really good vote for us to force if we can figure out how to do it.

  4. Harry Jackson:

    Advocates for critical race theory are even arguing that merit is racist, they argue that math is even racist, i am worried about the dumbing down of curriculum. I am worried about this forced equality. I don't think it works in other areas of the world. It certainly won't work in United States.

  5. Penn State President Eric Barron:

    This gives a chance to see engineering in real life, to watch a race and see engineering play out, all sorts of opportunities we can use to promote STEM education, seeing Penn State on that car is a tremendous sense of pride, and this is just a perfect example of taking advantage of all our opportunities.
