I, an ethnic minority woman, cannot be racist or sexist towards white men, because racism and sexism describes structures of privilege based on race and gender.I have to say, as a Native American, this strikes me as a useful little card to play.
And therefore women of colour and minority genders cannot be racist or sexist because we do not stand to benefit from such a system.
In order for our actions to be deemed racist or sexist, the current system would have to be one that enables only people of colour and women to benefit economically and socially on such a large scale and to the systematic exclusion of white people and men, who for the past 400 years would have to have been subjected to block colonisation.
