I like how Jones mentions DuBois’ concept of the double-consciousness or the “double-self” as he terms it elsewhere in The Souls of Black Folk. There isatension between being Black and “something else” — be that something else queer, disabled, etc.Iam African-American and autistic. Interestingly enough,Imentioned the same concept from DuBois in one of my own blog posts (http://bit.ly/16lCvpN) about the lack of visibility of Black autistics. Well done, Saeed. An amazing article.
