Racial Identity

“Racial identity is a social construct that generally refers to a group that is thought to share a racial heritage. ...A positive racial identity means you are
secure in your racial identity, you are aware of the history of your racial group, and you are able to identify when you are being racially stereotyped. ...A positive racial identity means you have spent time learning about who you are as a racial being—both the privileges and the disadvantages it affords you—and how your racial identity affects your experi-
ence of others and the world” (Singh 11).
