This paper discusses the multifocal indexicality of race talk among transnationally mobile Luso-descendants (who often collate race and racism in French and Portuguese contexts), which may index the speaker’s stance towards racialized others whom they refer to, or the speaker’s behavior as a racist/antiracist type.
