The concept of race is a political, not scientific construct which was first developed and used by Europeans in the 1600s to facilitate slavery and a color based caste system. Read Thomas Jefferson barbaric concept of race in his 1784 "Notes On Virginia" The only book this serial child molester and child abuser e er wrote. He desperately tries to justify his primitive mindset with pseudo science while living a hypocritical double life. Jefferson is the archtypical American on race. It sad that his views are still held and practiced by many Americans today. The naive and the blind confuse progress with change which had had it's scab removed by the series of unarmed Blacks murdered by whites based solely on race by civilians and police. Whites refusal to see what is so obvious to African-Americans is amazing but sad. The difference between liberals and conservatives collapses on the issue of race as it does with homophobria. I wish we could make real progress instead of changing the method of oppression to suit the economic and global political demands of a particular time.
