"Because race and gender are not secondary processes, but are constitutive contradictions, centering formations like women of color feminism and racialized immigrant women's culture necessitate a displacement of a totalizing 'systemic' tendency inherent to such analyses. Racialized and gendered difference is intrinsic to capital's reproduction, but it is also erased and disavowed. Naming race and gender as constitutive processes thus requires tracing the history of this erasure and disavowal. ... Women of color feminist practice and racialized immigrant women's culture emerge as the return of the repressed of capital, naming the erasures at the very moment of articulation. As such, the histories of race and gender must emerge in culture, where the impossible is imagined." (xxiv)
