This chapter examines the persistence of racism in the context of the history of Spain. It argues that the politics, categories, and practice of racism are historically specific, shaped by local struggles as well as far-flung imperial rivalries and the politics of state making. This chapter also analyzes the definition of race in terms of both breeding and religious faith and examines the use of the worlds creole, mestizo, and mulato in colonial Peru.
