The genius of this conversation means everything to me, especially since a Black woman and a Black man are having it together. The balance that she speaks of, rejecting the “we are all the same” mantra where that usually means anyone not heterosexual, able-bodied, cisgender, White, middle class and Western should be altering themselves to “fit” and denying their own culture AND rejecting the idea that people are something exact and specific solely because of race or gender etc. is rejecting White supremacist capitalist patriarchy on either hand. Genius. I love these two.
(What they speak of makes me think of Kimberlé Crenshaw’s writing on the politics of social location.)
