Lezli chats with Tanya Katerí Hernández, internationally recognized comparative race law expert and Archibald R. Murray Professor of Law at Fordham University School of Law. The two explore the mythology of national identity over racial identity in Latin America, anti-Black customs that make anti-Black laws unnecessary, “boa aparência/good looking” as a job qualification, and how Hurricane Maria “outed” folks with 4A, B, and C hair.
