Eenie Meenie and Bulletproof kind of touched on this topic in the fan ban thread, and I wanted to know what you guys think about it. Race appears to be a useless construct that doesn't help humanity. The terms "black" and "white" are antebellum terms that don't accurately describe human beings that are honestly beige and brown, but have nevertheless ended up on our state and federal forms. If these terms are not accurate, if they are falsehoods that we accept as identifiers, what is the cost of treating them as authentic? Do kids understand the concept of "constructs"? What damage is caused until they come to grips with that concept? And what about people who never figure out that ideas related to race are constructs? I feel like the terms we use, especially "black" and "white", should be abandoned. I think the extreme nature of these terms create unnatural and unnecessary consequences for humanity.
