ZUMBA | Not Like Them

In a time where “political correctness” is constantly debated, it’s interesting to see how that affects dynamics within marginalized communities. There are all types of actions and rhetoric that create an “us and them” vibe between people with the same identities. They try to distance themselves from a subset of the same community sometimes because they are afraid of how they will be viewed by others. A common example is how some women distance themselves from labeling themselves as feminists. The word often has a negative connotation because feminists are just seen as annoying, angry women who cannot let anything go.
