    In my previous paper I stated that the major issue I’d like to explore is how to balance race and gender, more specifically how to identify as a “Puerto Rican woman” and not “Puerto Rican” and then a “woman”.

Blow Out

            I’d like to begin my paper be referring to something that was said in a previous class that’s been stuck in the back of my mind ever since.  I think it was in the class where we discussed foregrounding and the topic the dynamic between race issues and gender issues came up.  Someone said that they couldn’t, as a woman of color, focus on both at the same time, and that usually race issues came first and feminism faded to the background.
