Identity, Affect, Alliance: Thinking Whiteness Transnationally
Keywords:Affect, Whiteness, Queer Theory, Desidentification, Négritude
I interrogate affective investments in whiteness, both in antiracist movements and in their white-supremacist counterparts. Questioning the definition of whiteness as either race or ethnicity, I point out the affective aspects of both whiteness and racialization at large. Turning to queer of Color critique, I underline the affective dimensions of racial belonging that have to be deconstructed to effectively combat white supremacy.
