Zoe nooooo you can pretend that your race isn’t a factor but it is and always will be. Your race and ethnic identity is important because people from those identities look to you as a role model. When someone ignores the weight of the social construction of race in our world they appear distant and out of touch with their supporters. It is better someone realizes that they cannot escape these racial constructions by simply saying they don’t exist and uses the constructions to create a dialog about race in America.
