Dr. Maya Rockeymoore: Why Do We Need to Focus on Race?
The question is, Why race and why now? There are organizations and individuals who think that not focusing on and acknowledging race or ethnicity is the polite thing to do. I call that “the invisible race card.” They think class and gender explain all differences in our society. But, while class and gender are important, they intersect with race and ethnicity. — Maya Rockeymoore, Center for Global Policy Solutions
