INTERSECTIONS OF INEQUALITY 101
This is an intersectional space to identify, contend, and discuss the claims made in the critical race & gender sphere, through a direct textual analysis of radical theorists.
If you are a bit hesitant to engage, I do understand, truly. However, I want to make this exponentially clear: this is a platform of reading for every skill level. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never read even a single quote from a critical theorist, we begin from the roots and work our way up.
On this note, who is this not for? This is not for anyone who does not want to confront their own prejudices and biases. These reads are not easy, especially because we all hold our own stereotypes before engaging in them. It is okay to not know everything, none of us do. But, it is not okay, to not be willing to confront those assumptions you carry. If you are not comfortable with getting uncomfortable, I don’t think you would very much enjoy these reads.
By making this knowledge accessible, we create new grounds and platforms from which we can unlearn our oppressive behaviors. I hope that by engaging in these decolonial discourses, you begin to imagine the ways in which we can reconcile pure theory into forms of practice and implementation. It may be scary, it may even be hard to confront our own prejudices. We feel we are not smart enough, good enough, critical enough to understand and analyze these discourses. I hope you realize that these theories are not outside of yourself. You have all the capabilities to analyze this theory, and I make it my mission to provide you with critical, but digestible reads that enable you the praxis to confront how critical thought is inherent in your day to day life, and how you can expand that discourse towards your communities. And how we all can begin standing in solidarity with the world around us.
