In a Classroom of Their Own

ABMS’ black male supporters conclude that black boys are oppressed not as blacks or as boys but as black boys who are taught in racist, female-dominated classrooms. This chapter demonstrates that in doing so these supporters embrace intersectionality and reveal it is a politically fluid heuristic rather than a necessarily feminist framework. Put otherwise, while intersectionality highlights how race, gender, and other arenas of oppression interact it does not dictate which arenas, who is consequently oppressed, or how to alleviate their oppression. Black males, black Christians, working class whites, and other groups can thus use anti-feminist and anti-racist politics to define themselves as intersectionally disadvantaged and to offer ABMS, immigration quotas, and gay marriage as the best way to challenge their disadvantage.

Keywords:   intersectionality, heuristic, politically fluid, working class whites, black Christians, immigration, gay marriage
