Like Marie Cocco, I could come up with my own list of Media Matters clips and offensive merchandise that I could use to argue definitively that racism is worse than sexism. But I'm not sure what that would prove, other than that I believe the prejudice I've faced is qualitatively worse than the prejudice I know nothing about. I see racism and sexism as intertwined if not interdependent, so I don't understand why for some people the Democratic primary has become a competition over who has it worse. Not to mention the fact that Cocco's approach basically excludes all women of color from the conversation.
