Whenever a white and black character cannot be distinguished from one another, or when a white character looks black and vice versa.

JB

4167 Cultural Issues Race Inequalities

Created to capture the pervasive patterns of difference caused by race - specifically, that the white hunters in "Race at Morning" carry good guns while Simon carries an old "britchloader slung on a piece of plow line" (298).

This is listed under cultural identity and ethnic identity, but in "Death Drag" it is very clear that this is a racial difference.

Not sure if it makes to consolidate with the other forms of identifying Jewishness. JHB
