Link: “The History of White People”: What it means to be white – Nonfiction – Salon.com.

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.
