Race is not only about identity or skin colour. Capitalism has been racialized from its origins, and has produced a modern world system that derives economic value from the commodification of racial identities through slavery, imperialism, and genocide. Furthermore, racial capitalism has been accompanied by biopolitical technologies that regulate sexuality and enforce heteronormativity making it also a gendered process.
