Great discussion... Indeed, race is a social construct that has not existed since the beginning of time. The concept does stem from colonial times. Divide & conquer is the underlying principle.
We do know that the ancient Kemetic (Egyptians) referred to themselves characteristically as Black. But that reference had nothing to do with what we now experience as the greater European concept of Racism, which is all honesty is more or less a perpetuated thought system that really does not exist. Race is only real to those who buy into it from the standpoint that "percieved reality is reality". Culture or epistemology are more accurate classifications of peoples from different backgrounds.
When those of us who have the knowledge begin to refute this concept then we will begin to experience a long-awaited paradigm shift. UHURU.
