My Intersectionality [IBARW]

I always look through the lens of intersectionality because I don’t have the choice.  I am an intersectional person – AfricanAmerican, ProFeminist, LowerSocioEconomicLevel, Male, … and a lot more. I have to think about how my identities intersect because that affects how I’m treated and how I can react in turn.

For those who don’t “believe in intersectionality” or don’t “put stock in it” my response is the same for people with white skin privilege who say they “don’t talk about race”/are “colorblind”/believe “racism is over” – You have that privilege, I don’t.
