This Week’s Question

Hello there! I’ve been trying to find an online forum with respectful and thoughtful discussion of race relations in this country…. apparently the key word respectful significantly reduces the results. I’ve had several questions that I was curious about; but I’m gonna limit myself to one. I was wondering if you or anyone you know have felt as though you need to choose between your gender and your ethnicity? I’m confused by people who claim to be a feminist but believe that we live in a post-racist society or a member of BLM that doesn’t believe same sex couples shouldn’t be allowed to marry. In my opinion we are all natural allies and would effect change much faster if we all work together. I don’t understand how someone can claim to be an advocate for equality when it suits them and be a complete hypocrite in other matters. How can someone claim to deserve equality while refusing it to others. I’m trying to understand the why behind these oxymoron’s. So, I wanted to know your thoughts on the matter.
Thanks!
