“It is within the historical and contemporary contexts of such scholarship that differences in skin color have been and are signified as a mark which suggests the existence of different “races.” As a consequence, a primary response among many progressive activists and scholars when we call for the elimination of “race” as an analytical category is to reel off accusations of a “color‐blind” discourse” – ANTONIA DARDER AND RODOLFO D. TORRES

From chapter 5  Shattering the “Race” Lens: Toward a Critical Theory of Racism
