At the Corner of Race and Class

Every once in a while, a number of discussions in my personal blogosphere converge. In this case, it’s the discussion of race and IQ that I restarted and continued, and which has attempted to take over Greg Laden’s Blog for the last couple of weeks, the discussion of the racist connotations of “redneck” by bikemonkey being overwhelmed by the discussion of “redneck” as a classist term, Will Shetterly’s ongoing critique of the antiracist community’s failure to deal with classism as an underpinning of racism, and Eric Michael Johnson’s deconstruction of social Darwinism. It’s time to say a few words about the intersection of race and class.

I’m taking on the light, uncontentious topic over at Quiche Moraine.
