Race/Colour in Barbados « what crazy looks likeEemanee blogs about race and colour, and throws out the following thoughts:

Even when we remind ourselves of just how fluid and contested race is we fail to reveal that race is in itself a fiction.When we refuse to see the difference between historical racial privilege and racial slurs we foreclose on any opportunity to dismantle the fiction of race.And when we recognise race as constructed we refuse to see its construction does not make it any less real.
