Race As a Social Construction

Personal Works

giulio bonasera race categorization conceptual illustration
The degree to which a person is categorized into a racial category can vary as a function of the social context
''Put simply, Obama’s 'blackness' was systematically determined by racial biases of the perceiver, by the political partisanship of the perceiver, and by the temporal proximity of the testing session to an election. These patterns reflect social construction of race. As a society we develop cultural rules about race and then we apply these rules when psychologically categorizing people.'' - Gordon Hodson
