A fascinating time to contemplate racial identity

What is race, and what does it mean?!  Big questions in anthropology classes for sure, but now I am interested to see it play out in the media.  An unusual story to be sure, but Rachel Dolezal’s declaration that she self-identifies as Black makes me think of the cultural construction of race, the  history of  racial prejudice on biological grounds, White privilege and the complex construction of identities in  a modern world.  Check out Neil McDonald’s analysis for the CBC and see what you think.

guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the fuck out

Shades of the “What colour is this dress?” debate of earlier this spring?!
