Oppositional Consciousness

“We say that members of a group that others have traditionally treated as subordinate or deviant have an OPPOSITIONAL CONSCIOUSNESS when they (i) claim their previously subordinate identity as a positive identification, (ii) identify injustices done to their group, (iii) demand changes in the polity, economy, or society to rectify those injustices, and (iv) see other members of their group as sharing an interest in rectifying those injustices. ‘Oppositional consciousness’ is the umbrella term. Class, race, and other forms of group consciousness are specific instances.” Oppositional Consciousness: The Subjective Roots of Social Protest Edited by Jane Mansbridge & Aldon Morris - TI
