Aníbal Quijano

I have to look at him and at the process of “cholificación” which is not a road to acculturation. He is also interested in culture and power, and this seems to be what I am talking about in relation to race and the state.

My illumination for the day is that the nation is supposed to be mestizo but not the state.
I wonder if this will turn out to be true.

Portocarrero talks about how one is expected to notice racial difference but not to discuss it. This may be what I mean by evoke-and-elide.
