Blanchité, discrimination et intersectionnalité

Abstract : The article focuses on the issue of « white identity » or concept of whiteness which is central in understanding the mechanism of power resulting from the slavery system in force from the 16th to the 19th century in America and the Caribbean.Intersectionality enables us on the one hand to spotlight the major role of whiteness in understanding multiple discriminations and how mechanisms of power work. On the other hand, intersectionality allows a wider analysis of the process of co-creation of group identity.
