“What does it mean that the deep wound of race in this country has come to be euphemized as a card, a metaphor which acknowledges the rhetoric as such and yet simultaneously materializes race into a finite object that can be dealt out, withheld, or trumped? Why the singularity of a card? Who gets to play? And what would constitute a ‘full deck’? ”
Anne Cheng, The Melancholy of Race
