This chapter maps out Veracruz’s complex race-color terminological terrain, providing a broad overview of the usages and connotations of common race-color terms. It addresses methodological issues surrounding the use of race and color when conducting research in Latin America. It also details how racial and color terms function on a continuum, and how related labels convey broader meanings related to class and attractiveness. This chapter lays the conceptual and practical groundwork for understanding the terminology used throughout the book.

Keywords:   Race, Color, Terminology, Mexico, Latin America
