Classic brevity is truly beautiful. And so I trawl the blogosphere to find little nuggets. Here is one:
Race is a constructed category, in the sense that people shape what they count as a “race” according to time, place and purpose. There is no unique and rigid concept of it the way there is a rigid concept of buoyancy, double-entry book-keeping, equilateral triangles and photosynthesis.
Incidentally, this is from one of the more eloquent contemporary political speeches that I have come across. Read the whole speech – here.
Thanks to Koko for pointing me to the speech.
