How to use race in a sentence?

  1. Marty Irby:

    Were thrilled to see a light at the end of the tunnel with Chinas proposal to reclassify dogs as companion animals and bring an end to dog meat trade, these animals are our dutiful companions and not our dinner fare. If COVID19 has taught us anything, its that we can not allow infectious practices such as eating bats, dogs, cats, pangolins, and other exotic creatures to continue not only for the welfare of the animals, but for the heath and safety of the human race and global economy. Its believed that the coronavirus pandemic originated from a wet market in Wuhan, China. Marty Irby added that.
