Assunto:  The concept of race
 
Mensagem:  Pat, there was a documentary on PBS yesterday about the development of the concept of RACE in America. I wanted to let you know before but I forgot. It was an extremelly thought-provoking documentary. I think you will find it educational as you are very race conscious. I am also. Even more, it'll point out how poor european plantation laborers came to identify themselves as "whites", a term inicially reserved for the very rich English men. In addition, it talks about the then race "scientists" in a very concise manner. They'll be showing it again on PBS44 at 3 o'clock tomorrow. Try to see it. You may read about the documentary on PBS's website pbs.org. Look for the show-RACE-The power of an illusion. -Miguel Vieira
