“We are often told that we are living now in a world of multiple identities, of hybridity , of decent-redness and fragmentation. The old illusory unified identities of class , gender , race, sexuality are breaking up ; someone maybe be black and gay and middle class and female ; we maybe bi-pilor or non-sexual, of mixed race, indeterminate gender and heaven knows what class. Yet we have not yet reached a situation in which white people and white cultural agendas Are no longer in the ascendant. The media , politics , education are still in the hands of white people , still speak for whites while claiming -and sometimes sincerely to speak for humanity .” (Dyer, Richard. Pg.11) #whiteprivilige#race #whiteness #matterofwhiteness#youssef
