Professor Eugene Berry says there are two ways to look at it: either biologically or socially. He says genetically, we're very similar.
But in our society, we can see each other as very different because of our physical traits. The Anti-Race group member says NDSU has come a long way in fighting racism, but it still has a ways to go.
"The color of your skin doesn't necessarily define who that person is and how they're going to behave or anything else. Because traditionally that's how we think about it and race and just to say there are differences, we know there are differences, but there's a lot more to each of us than the color of our skin."
The sessions are twice a month on Tuesdays.
