Race and/or ethnicity are topics that often come up alongside the issue of women in geek communities. Geek communities often have few people of colour, and there are many racist incidents just as there are sexist incidents. When people fall into two marginalized groups within the geek community -- eg. both race and gender -- we start to also see issues of intersectionality, where the experience of being a woman of colour is different from that of being a member of just one group.
