THE HUMAN RACE
BREAK RACIAL BARRIERS
Welcome To KolorStruck
KolorStruck traces the historic implications of race as a social construction in the United States from its emergence during the 17th and 18th century to modern day.
Race is a classification system used to categorize humans into large and distinct groups by observable physical characteristics that is acknowledged, recognized and accepted as a valid classification system; however there is a wide consensus that commonly used racial categories are socially constructed, and racial groups cannot be biologically defined by physical characteristics ultimately making the concept of race a fallacy.

Join in the conversation to end racial barriers!
Today our society remains divided largely along racial constructions that have serious effects on American ideologies that fuel all aspects of our society. Race as a social construction is fueled by the acceptance of racial classifications as a valid method of social identification. When people define and talk about a particular conception of race, they create a social reality through which a social construction is achieved.
KolorStruck exposes the willing acceptance of race and what keeps the social construction alive and well, as people subconsciously and consciously agree to be a part of the construction. Therefore, as a society we must be conscious of how we define ourselves and the perception associated with the racial constructions. Get involved in the discussion #ALLLIVESMATTER.
