I just wanted to share an article I stumbled upon at Salon.com. I’ve heard Tim Wise speak on the subject as well as a dear friend who is a College professor expound on these topics. It’s a good non-sensational read. Check it out and feel free to share your thoughts here.
I’m familiar with the history of a group of scientists coining ‘race’ and making ‘whiteness’ the next thing under God in their hierarchy of creation. I wasn’t familiar with the origin of ‘Caucasian’ and how this so frequently has been about aesthetic beauty.
