    Form in Art The object in question is marked as a Syrian, Bronze Age, stone label seal (c. 3rd- 2nd millennium).

    Synthesis on Race and Ethnicity With the commencement of the millennium one might think that what is known as the melting pot of the world would interact more smoothly than what is portrayed in the media. We have long lived in a society that is segregated, not because it has gone unopposed, but because no one wants to take on the responsibility of breaking the "Berlin Wall" of segregation.
