Mapping the Veracruz race-color terminological terrain -- Beneath the surface of mixed-race identities -- Mestizos' attitudes on race mixture -- Inter-color couples and mixed-color families in a mixed-race society -- Situating blackness in a mestizo nation -- Silencing and explaining away racial discrimination -- What's at stake? : racial common sense and securing a Mexican national identity -- Epilogue : the turn of the twenty-first century : an ideological shift?
This is a richly-detailed ethnographic account of the powerful role that race and colour play in organizing the lives and thoughts of ordinary Mexicans. It presents a previously untold story of how individuals in contemporary urban Mexico construct their identities, attitudes, and practices in the context of a dominant national belief system.
