I am declutterinng and it means trying to decipher pieces of paper upon which I wrote important things. One of them is the title of this post–the idea that there ARE infrastructures of race. And there’s a book about it, that I have to get.
The point is that processes of racialization begin sooner than the Enlightenment–they begin at the beginning–you can also see them in Sigüenza y Góngora (my slip of paper says, I don’t remember why he was important in particular). But note: Dialectic of Enlightenment is about how Enlightenment thought leads to Fascism.

I am not sure what to do with all of this, but it was what I wrote during a lecture and Q and A session I no longer remember, and there’s something in it.
