Questioning Race (Part Two)

What is the meaning of the racialized life?  What is its purpose, its goal, its end?  Why are we, the “races,” here?  If race is our creator, as people of color (“White” is a color too.), what were we placed on the earth to do?  What happens when we die after we have lived our lives through and to and for race? What happens to our socially colored bodies, their power and privileges, their weakness and disadvantages?

What are we do with this social coloring of skin?  Are we truly ruling over others because of it or is it ruling over us?  Who or what is really in control and why?  Why does race control us, dictate to us what we are to do and say and become?  Why does race have a purpose, a goal, an end in our lives?  Why is race here and now and believed to be always?  Why aren’t we questioning race?
