No, your “race” is chosen for you by society. Everything flows from that. I don’t care if you claim to be “colorblind” (no such thing,) the racial classification you are born into determines almost everything in this nation.
Yes, we all know “race” is bullshit, that “humans are all the same thing pretty much.” But that’s not the world we live in. In today’s world we have to contend with the construct of “race” and wising it doesn’t exist won’t solve the problem.
Hypothetical question: If you could choose, would you choose to be black in America today?
