Dear Lauren,
Perhaps we can do our own teach ins--i wouldn't mind showing audre lorde's A Litany for really examine what she meant when she said
'liberation is not the private province of any one particular group"

Wait, what? The black working class has historically had to fight
against a lot of both historically and at least asian immigrant
communities were just as likely to be right wing and racist towards
them as european ones (I have neither personal observations nor data
for latin americans), at least until muslims became convenient
scapegoat. Class is pretty damn important, race is pretty damn
important, gender is pretty damn important, sexual minorities are
pretty damn important, that's why it's called intersections.

Focusing on only one issue gave us bourgeois feminists who ignore
queer and minority women, "gay marriage activists" who only care about
the plight of wealthy white homosexuals, the homophobia of the black
church, etc.
