In order to sincerely pursue an inclusive African American humanity, we must recognize and respond to the complex intersections of subordination and privilege within the broad social, cultural, and physiological domain that is Blackness—the physical marker of African American existence within the United States. This paper represents an attempt to reflexively consider my own Blackness and the privileges contained therein. Sexuality, class and gender are among the subject positions that I consider in this effort.
