You got race on my class! You got class on my race!

I am taking the plunge and attempting to provide panel notes for two panels I attended. If there are any misattributions or errors of transcription, please let me know and I'll be happy to fix them. These were originally written for a class at Antioch and take the form of a summary/transcription (as objective as possible) followed by a personal reflection.

Race and class are two identities that exist in tandem, one never really trumping the other. What are the ways they intersect, diverge, conflict? What happens when our internal race/class state differs from an external race/class assignment -- and what factors go into forming internal/external states in the first place? This panel will look at the realities of how we exist within and negotiate race and class without privileging either concept.
The panelists were Chris Wrdnrd, Eileen Gunn, Saladin Ahmed, and Nisi Shawl. There was no moderator for this panel.
