Because intersectionality as a concept deriver from the activist critiques that women of colour in the US and UK made in the 1970s and 1980s about an overly homogeneous political discourse in which ' all the women are white abd all the blacks are men'

I cant understand that activist critisize the women of color?

The women of color are the activists to begin with, their criticism of what we now call white feminism (first and second wave?) is that women of color were left out of the debate, which made it so the term "woman" meant de facto "white woman" and the only people of color discussed were men of color.

Hello. Women of color is a female person of color. 

A person of color is a person who is not white or of European parentage in general. In the past time when there was still discrimination of skin color and races, people of color did some movement that changed the world. :)

If you want to read something about interesectionality you can go here:

If you want to watch something about intersectionality, you can see this 18 minute TED talk by the woman who came up with the term "intersectionality." She discusses the need for the concept of intersectionality to help us reframe our understanding of injustice to be more complete, more inclusive:

During the first foundation of femenism, it was started by white women, and cevil right was admitted that only white women can vote and practice thier rights freely this what this uttrance mean that is, since black women are just slaves and do such works as men do, so they were considered like men. But later on after much efforts they gets thier right simillar to white women

I don't know what you are reading, but it is written horribly.

 "Intersectionality", (whatever that is, I have never heard of this before)

Derives or derived - this word is spelled wrong - it means comes from

Intersectionality comes from the activist critiques - the criticism activists made

The specific activists making the criticism were:  women of colour in the US and UK in the 1970s and 1980s 

The criticism was of:  an overly homogeneous political discourse in which ' all the women are white and all the blacks are men'

These women of color felt left out as they were black women, and they felt the "homogeneous political discourse" did not include them

As to your question, the women of color are the ones making the activist critiques.  The author of this passage should have put the words 'made by' after the word 'critiques '.  The passage really is written poorly.
