” Each must consider the interests of their total self when claiming a social stance. After reading the commentary on one of my debate igniting Facebook posts, she shared an article written by Valerie Purdie-Vaughns and Richard P.Eibach, introducing the theory that those who identify as a member of multiple subgroups could be worse off than those with a single identifier.I immediately thought that perhaps the Obamas were the catalyst.With the inauguration of America’s first African-American President, we suddenly had a strong, loving Black family on the world’s stage.This patriarchal system, where White men dominated White women, created male-dominated financial and political spheres that barred women from participation.The results of this are evident in the fact that Black men were allowed to vote before White women were and a Black male was elected president before a White female.
