Kimberly Crenshaw

 

As I’m Interviewing Kimberle Crenshaw in this piece…I’m actually unaware that Crenshaw is the creator of the term intersectional activism. In our Lyme work, the number one problem we’ve seen Lyme Activism encounter…is clash of egos…and activists…disliking each other within the movement. What’s amazing, is right about now….the Lyme community is waking up to that fact and doing something about it. Crenshaw realized 30 years ago…that progressive movements clashing with each other may not be the best thing for progressivism…clashing progressive values played a huge role in this last election. People continuously want answers as to what happened (in this last election). The answer is that a lot of things happened. Not showing up in Wisconsin and Michigan…not really having political “Killers’ run  HRC’s campaign, a non strong enough defense of the Clinton Foundation–which is an extraordinary organization (Comparing it to Trumps foundation: best…to the worst) somehow that message was not brought out strongly enough…Caine…may not have been strong enough choice. the third and 4th party candidacies (way to go Jill Stein…Gary Johnson: clearly an idiot…but you?)

James Carville would (and did) identify one element above all: progressives tearing down Hillary Clinton. Intersectional Activism is about as important of a concept to apply in taking action out there. Know what you’re fighting against: because its certainly in our faces now. I cannot tell you how much  Ha Goodman and Julian Assange…helped make this bed. The good news: California passed Universal Health Care today….the pushback will be strong…and that is in someway a hopeful message for today. The bad news: Bloomberg recently said that he felt there was 55 percent chance of Trump being re-elected….he sited a non-clear democratic message, and most importantly, infighting amongst progressives.–Milon Henry Levine

  1. Draft of the same year on the bottom rookie will be what?In general the draft should be able to blow the other party, who would have thought them took Owen on the 60th pick small Thomas in the same year, he turned out to be in the position of the challenger?

    I have been surfing on-line more than three hours as
    of late, yet I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did,
    the internet will be much more helpful than ever before.
