This paper discusses the essays "Defining Black Feminist Thought" by Patricia Hill Collins, "Everyday Racism: A New Approach to the Study of Racism" by Philomena Essed, and "The Nation Form: History and Ideology" by Etienne Ballibar, from the book "Race Critical Theories: Text and Context." The writer discusses how Collins tackles concepts of gender and shows the contribution that the diversity of black women voices has made to critical theory, and how racism for Essed is a powerful ideological social construct that affects how 'people' see the world, and also the mechanisms of the justice system. The writer also explains how Ballibar sheds light on the concept of race by discussing what makes a nation a community.
