“We also often find it difficult to separate race from class from sex oppression because in our lives they are most often experienced simultaneously.”

Switch around and change the words in this sentence to describe your experience.

For example SONG co-director Caitlin Breedlove made the following sentences:

Caitlin breaking it down...

Caitlin breaking it down...

“We always find it hard to separate race from class from sex oppression from ethnicity from desire from longing from love because in our lives they are experienced simultaneously.”

‘We cannot separate our race from class from sex oppression from ethnicity from desire from longing from exile from love because they are experienced simultaneously.”

“We are every single one of our ancestors; that is why we cannot separate race from class from sex oppression from ethnicity (the painted bracelets of my grandmothers) from desire (my 15-year old hands on the back of her neck), from longing from exile (talking to myself in my peoples language alone in the car) from love because they are experienced simultaneously.”
