It's becoming more and more clear... to me, at least... that "identity politics" is in direct opposition to the ideals of Martin Luther King, Jr.
If King's advocacy meant anything it meant judging people according to their individual personhood, rather than as some cog or spigot within a socially othered group.
It was as a liberal that MLK believed that we should judge people as people, i.e., according to the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.
Identity politics, as it is practiced today, is a different animal entirely. It does nothing but stick people into ethnic or gendered categories that they have no control over. It is for this reason that we are witnessing a backlash against it by all those heinous "regular white guys"... some of whom actually had the temerity to vote for Donald Trump.
So, my question is, are not pro-Israel Jews also practicing a form of identity politics?
Just how is it that our advocacy is not identity politics?
I honestly am not certain of the answer to this question.
