onetwentyeight is excited to present Raciality.

 

What is the racial reality of life today?

 

It does seem to be a different experience if you’re black rather than white in this country.

 

It does seem this way.

 

But we are just one race - The Human Race.

 

We speak as if we are all different races - black, white, red, yellow, brown. Yet, these are mostly social constructs, artificial creations that keep us divided.

 

What if we were among a race of alien beings(“uchujin”)? What is some day we find ourselves in touch with beings from different universes and different realities?

 

How would we explain ourselves?

 

First, we would identify as human, no?

 

Regardless of the color of our skin.

 

And the reason it is so hard for many to do that today?

 

Raciality.
