what is race consciousness?

How would you explain to someone was race consciousness mean?


  1. To be honest I’ve never heard of “race consciousness”. I know a great deal about class consciousness, of which race can be a huge part of. However, race is not really a definitive thing. For one, there are no “pure” races. Secondly, race can and has been subjectively defined. Someone with a certain race in one country could have their race changed just by flying to a different one.
    Personally, for these reasons, I think race consciousness is bogus. Class consciousness, however, that’s an entirely different thing.

  2. I’m guessing it has someone who is consciously aware of the race he or she is speaking to or meeting, whereas someone who’s not race conscious probably would not notice, because to them they are just speaking to another person?
