Agreed.  I don't think we're as far apart on this as it may have 
seemed at first.

Yes, the centrality of class, but with an understanding that fighting 
racism, sexism, homophobia, etc., is an integral part of the class 
struggle, but that looking at only one of those factors can lead to a 
skewed view.

Again, agreed.
