The top third of this piece is a pretty good encapsulation of everything that’s wrong with the misreading of “intersectionality” — a casual contempt for white liberals, particularly women, without whom no civil rights movement in history would have succeeded.
Better points are made toward the end, after fully alienating anyone who might benefit from them. And the author’s unconscious internalization of the assumption that “senseless violence” comes from people of color, rather than black-bloc or provacateurs as is so often the case, is sadly ironic.
Freddy Douglas is doing a great job. Everyone says so.
