The above video entitled “The Browning of America” is from a lecture at The Latin American Health Institute by Ilan Stavans, the editor of The Norton Anthology of Latino Literature. Stavans discusses the social connotations of color and the stereotypes that society constructs for different ethnic groups.  He addresses the White/Black binary and states that the social connotations of color will always maintain prevalence because the world encompasses a multi cultural and multi ethnic society. Good Stuff!
