Indeed, Crenshaw uses the following analogy, referring to a traffic intersection, or crossroad, to concretize the concept: Consider an analogy to traffic in an intersection, coming and going in all four directions.
Discrimination, like traffic through an intersection, may flow in one direction, and it may flow in another. If an accident happens in an intersection, it can be caused by cars traveling from any number of directions and, sometimes, from all of them. Similarly, if a Black woman is harmed because she is in an intersection, her injury could result from sex discrimination or race discrimination.
But it is not always easy to reconstruct an accident: Yet the legal system has generally defined sexism as based upon an unspoken reference to the injustices confronted by all including white women, while defining racism to refer to those faced by all including male Blacks and other people of color.

All of the Black women hired after lost their jobs fairly quickly, however, in mass layoffs during the —75 recession. Yet the court refused to allow the plaintiffs to combine sex-based and race-based discrimination into a single category of discrimination: The plaintiffs allege that they are suing on behalf of black women, and that therefore this lawsuit attempts to combine two causes of action into a new special sub-category, namely, a combination of racial and sex-based discrimination….
The plaintiffs are clearly entitled to a remedy if they have been discriminated against. Thus, this lawsuit must be examined to see if it states a cause of action for race discrimination, sex discrimination, or alternatively either, but not a combination of both.

Look at my arm! I could have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! I could work as much and eat as much as a man—when I could get it—and bear the lash as well!
While white middle-class women have traditionally been treated as delicate and overly emotional—destined to subordinate themselves to white men—Black women have been denigrated and subject to the racist abuse that is a foundational element of US society.
She argues that Black women are frequently absent from analyses of either gender oppression or racism, since the former focuses primarily on the experiences of white women and the latter on Black men. This has enormous significance at the very practical level of movement building.
In Black Feminist Thought: If good mothers are supposed to stay at home with their children, then why are US Black women on public assistance forced to find jobs and leave their children in day care?Scandals involving the sexual abuse of under-age boys by homosexual priests have rocked the Roman Catholic Church.
At the same time, defenders of homosexuality argue that youth organizations such as the Boy Scouts should be forced to include homosexuals among their adult leaders.
