This article draws conclusion from the presidential results where 53% white women vote for Trump and most other hispanic and African American voted for Clinton. It points out that non-white women have less median annual earnings than white and Asian women. Ethnic minorities women experience discrimination with respect to both their ethnicity and sex. This relates to the intersectionaltiy we have learned earlier. This article concludes that racism is still a bigger issue that gender inequality in the effect of intersectionality.

With regards to this conclusion, I concur because race is a more obvious determinant and problems of racism is are still more serious than problems of gender inequality. The latter tends to be disappearing and minimal, at least in an indirect form. However, racism can be very blatant and they can affect directly on a person's success. For instance, some employers may tend not to employ ethnic minorities but there are almost no emplyoers nowadays would say that they won't employ women.
