How is Race a Social Construction

It’s needs to be re-emphasized that none of this is to suggest race doesn’t matter, or that race is irrelevant to one’s identity. We must remember that, as Vox recently highlighted, “Race may have no biological or hereditary basis, but it’s a real aspect of US society and culture that can weigh on minority Americans everyday. Black people are, for example, more likely to be shot by police, more likely to be incarcerated, more likely to be victimized by the war on drugs, less likely to get a call back from employers, and more likely to be disciplined in schools, among many other disparities.”
