"Race is a recent historical invention used to make a distinction between people for purposes of colonization. C. Loring Brace, professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan, explains that the concept of race “does not appear until the Trans-Atlantic voyages of the Renaissance.” But the prevalence of race as a concept—and its relationship to appearance, human status, and identity formation—is actually more significant today than it ever was. Our obsession with race is surpassed only by our seemingly polite and progressive neutrality regarding race."
