Can be sold individually, $250/Pair There are no genetic markers that define race. Biologically, differentiating people by skin color would be as relevant as differentiating people by eye color. However the social and historical concept of race, myths, and stereotypes have determined the distribution of resources, wealth, opportunity, access to health care, education, jobs, power, and violence on people of color. Race is not biological, but racism is.
