Did you believe racism has been erradicated?

Oh hell no! Racism is pervasive throughout our society and is everywhere if you look for it. Things I've witnessed just recently are prompting me to join this group.

Did you believe that whiteness plays a major role in racism?

Whether I want to or not, I receive privilege because of my race, gender expression, class, ability, sexual preference, and so on. White culture must fundamentally change before racism ends.

Who is your favorite author that writes about racism? Why?

FEMINIST HULK brings tears to my eye. Octavia Butler explores race and gender in space with vampires. Breeze Harper ensures that vegans of color have a voice. Paul Kivel. Nnedi Okorafor. Peggy McIntosh. Nisi Shawl. Jarla Tangh.

Introduction

I am a feminist anti-racist vegan astrophysicist because I believe that all forms of oppression must end. I am a proud member of New Wave and NOMAS. I wish I had the time and emotional energy for more.
