This Mocha-Caramel-Honey Post-Racial Fantasy Is Making Me Sick

By Sharon Chang

 

“Are we bingeing on mixed-race beauty to feel better about racism?”

Insight:

 

This article says so many things I have been thinking.

There is also a thing called beauty privilege, that I do not hear others talking about in that way.

 

The article is excellent and detailed overall.

The one bit I would say differently is where Sharon says:
“We know race is not biological…”.

 

Race is exactly biological. The fact that race is about biology does not need to reinforce racism however. “The Nature of Race”, by Ann Morning goes into this and how different scientists view race differently. The big opposing views are between anthropologists and medical scientists.
