When we think of ourselves primarily as human, we say that our shared humanity matters more than our race, religion, gender, nationality, and so on.  This is a powerful ethical ideal. But the notion of the human can exclude as much as include; and when it diverts attention from difference to commonality, it can encourage an empty sentimentalism that wishes away the realities of power.
