“Race is socially constructed and it is constructed through the way we arrange space, the way we arrange institutions, the way our unconscious works. But it is not inevitable. We’re wired to differentiate and we’re wired to connect with each other. Which of those becomes most dominant depends on us. But not just us individuals, us collectively and us in terms of how we build our institutions and structures. And that is the challenge we face today.”
John A. Powell gives an intelligent and relevant perspective on race and social construction, and a clear offering of what we can do to change these structures. Mind-shifting stuff!
