What is it about dark pigment that makes people suddenly start acting funny? Why are people so obsessed with race? Reese Simmons confronts these questions in Pigments of the Imagination.

Abstract:
Human beings, the political animal, narcissistic, nepotistic, obsessed with hierarchies, uses economics, ideology, and even violence to enforce these hierarchies; color gradients gradually appear, tiny human differences are magnified while vast similarities are ignored to the point of absolute delusion. The rigid race lines humans draw are dotted at best. We’re all human, this is clear. So why draw the race line? Who benefits from drawing this line? And when it’s time to draw, where do we start? In America people have a tendency to start with black and white, but ironically, nobody is actually black or white; these skin color descriptions are pigments of the imagination.
