All homophobia is heteronormative not all heteronormativity is is homophobic. This also holds true for white supremacy and white normativity. The US is not longer a WS country, but it does still have WN problems. Also a lot of the issues that leftists see as institutional racist problems are really problems down to the practice of institutional power. There will always be ethnic losers in the practice of institutional power with law and criminality being an obvious example.

In the early to mid part of century 20 for instance Italians probably faced more repressive aspects of law then black people did. Law order and disenfranchisement transcends ethnocentric biases though they can certainly play a role.
