On the other side of the coin is a view that argues that race is the most important category for human identity.
One major supporter of this view is Sang Hyun Lee, Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Asian American Program at Princeton Theological Seminary. He calls this racial/cultural separatism “marginality.” The whole ideal of marginality relates to all minority groups–ethnic and racial who are experiencing some form of exclusion in a dominant culture. One’s marginality is understood as resistance from a minority group in a hierarchial relationship with another dominant group toward this dominant group. Likewise the nonmarginal/dominant group seeks to resist the marginal group’s entrance to the group and enjoyment of its privileges. Sang Lee sees this resistance as being inevitable.
