We hear that race is a social construct, but what does that mean exactly? How can something be ‘real’ and ‘not real’ at the same time? And if race is not biologically based, then how can it have such a strong impact on our lives?
What do you want to remember from this clip or the whole movie that: – Surprised you?
– Made you want more information?
– Confirmed something you already knew?
– Made you want to tell someone something they need to know?
What would you say if a child asked you what your race is? What information would you want them to know to make sure they were getting the whole story?
