How we define race is not a fixed social construct, but ever-evolving. Indeed, race is about skin color. But the study also looked at the way negative stereotypes, socioeconomic class and myriad other factors give us racial cues into how we see other people as well as ourselves. [This news media article is based on Penner, Andrew M. and Aliya Saperstein. "How Social Status Shapes Race." Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 105,50 (December 16, 2008): 19628-19630]
