Americans look to the color of one's skin to define the individual.
Most Americans place significant value on race. We have been
taught that race, family genealogy, and personal history plays a
major role in individual identity. Race is a social construction, a
source of social tension or a box that gets checked on government
forms, which in the end leads to varied benefit; varied
value. To look is to see, identify, and categorize. This project
is about identifying, categorizing, and examining the way that
Americans compartmentalize people based on the color of skin.
