Land of the Cosmic Race

This chapter focuses on the perspectives and experiences of individuals engaged in inter-color relationships and members of mixed-color families. It interrogates the government, scholarly, and popular belief that racism is incompatible with race mixture, by carefully examining dynamics within inter-color couples and mixed-color families, the symbolic vanguards of antiracism. In exposing that these intimate interracial social units house extremely pernicious and intimate forms of racial prejudice and discrimination, the findings presented in this chapter challenge the widespread conceptual equation of race mixture with a lack of racism.
