Back when I wrote My Latino Husband Is White, I mentioned I would one day blog more on the topic of the social construction of race. Today I am true to my word.
In preparation, I spent several days searching madly for my Sociology textbook. I finally discovered it late at night high in Ella’s closet. I then proceeded to over-excitedly pull it down, causing other items to fly, bounce off her bookcase and crash to the floor. Oh... all while she’s sleeping.
This raucous caused Billy to whisper angrily, “What are you doing?”
“I found my Sociology book!”
“And you need that now?” he asked me… at 11:45pm. Um… yes…
Anyway, I remembered an illustration the book used that I wanted to
steal share, but I didn’t want to botch it.
You'll find that example and more in the post today.
