I am not white. I am not middle class.
I am white skinned and puertorican. I was born into the working class and married into the middle class. I object to the label white & middle class both because they don’t include my working class life and my puertoricanness, but also because “white & middle class” stands for a kind of politics. Color and class don’t define people or politics. I get angry with those in the women’s movement and out of it who deal with class & color as if they defined politics and people.
