    What Does the Word "Race" Actually Mean?

    Nina G. Jablonski and George Chaplin at The National Interest - 22 hours ago
    *Nina G. Jablonski and George Chaplin* *Society, * [image: Reuters] Using race to describe inequality is misleading when what we seek to discuss are socioeconomic disparities. Race-thinking has been discredited for decades. But it is still with us. Yet race is a historical contingency, not a state of nature. One of the most sinister things about race is that its sibling, racism, not only lasts, but continues to grow. Race has so co-opted our consciousness and language that any attempt to deal with the effects of racism has been very difficult. The language of race was one of the... more »
