This paper introduces the concept of race specific patents through an archival analysis of published patents which are interpreted textually and through the lens of intellectual property policy. Race specific patents are patents for inventions that are aimed at racially or ethnically defined markets. The paper documents these patents, categorizes them, and uses the tools of economic and critical theory to understand them from the perspective of intellectual property policy.
