Racial Definition: Background for Divergence
Nelson, William Javier
Phylon, v47 n4 p318-26 Dec 1986
The racial definitional system in the United States ensures the separation of people. It is a caste-like system of nomenclature which was invented by Whites for their benefit. It is institutionalized and gets renewed through the socialization process. The system is only peripherally concerned with how Blacks define themselves. (VM)
