I decided that perhaps PMLA or Profession, and not a radical education journal, are the place for that article.
I realized my book title might only cover the Caribbean case. And a question I got: does my contention that race and state are a really different focus from mestizaje and nation hold together?
For that other article, where are my opening ideas? Let me see: while racial meaning is local, white supremacy is global. Keeping this in mind helps us avoid exceptionalist stances, and also helps protect against the shading of race into culture (I think). (I will continue.)
