    As with any issue, different people feel differently about it and have different associations and education about its meaning. I prefer the term racialized because different physical characteristics are given different meaning and these involve pigment and other physical characteristics. It is a socially constructed concept. People who looked like Italians used to be looked down on as an inferior race. Now they are considered white European and are treated as among the favoured race in North America. Light skinned black and brown people who were born in North America and speak perfect English are not afforded equal treatment as white immigrants, with or without an accent. So the way race bias is enacted is a social construction and it is less about pigment and more about what characteristics have been assigned to certain physical characteristics.
