Title: Queering race
Author: Wright, Kristopher Thomas
Abstract: I develop a feminist critique of three features in contemporary views of race : the meaning of race is essentially biological ; each of us has exactly one kind of racial identity ; and our racial identities are permanent . Having revealed each of these features to be confusions about the language of racial identification , I contend that our racial concepts currently permit a wider range of racial identifications than we currently acknowledge . Finally , I critically evaluate the political and ethical ramifications of treating race as a unified , permanent identity . Resistance to systems of racial and gendered oppression should challenge our identities as unified and permanent .
