this is how RACE Works, Mr. Diggs

Dear Taye, (may I call you TAYE?)

Race is a social construct.

It has political and historical context and real world, political and legal  implications.

Race is determined by how society and its members perceive you.

These arbitrary and completely subjective perceptions determine how people interact with you.

You control how you respond to these interactions.WIN_20150127_172443

in light of your ‘announcement’ it appears that on your planet, people can choose how they are perceived and treated.

 

(this has been tried before, see Respectability Politics)

I am going to test this theory today.. I am announcing that my family is now white.
