Gender, race, nation and class distinguish as categories of difference between women and men, blacks and whites, French and Germans, the rich and poor.

Their intertwining shapes the racist construction of the “Black Shame.” Within it, these categories are interwoven closely, overlap each other, become amalgamated and to some extent even substitute for one another.
