Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Yours in Struggle: Three Feminist Perspectives on Anti-Semitism and Racism, Elly Bulkin, Minnie Bruce Pratt, and Barbara Smith, 1984, United States, ESSAYS

"...White, Christian-raised Southerner Minnie Bruce Pratt asks: "Where does the need come from, the inner push to walk into change, if by skin color, ethnicity, birth culture, we are women who are in a position of material advantage, where we gain at the expense of others, other women?" Barbara Smith, an African-American, examines the difficulty of talking about anti-Semitism to black women and about racism to Jewish women because, in a white-supremacist patriarchy, "white skin, and if you have it, class privilege, definitely count for something, even if you belong at the very same time to a group or to groups that the society despises."..."

(J.L., p. 345)
