Erase Racism Carnival May Edition

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 21, 2007

The Angry Black Woman hosted this months Erase Racism Carnival today:

This is a very media-heavy edition, mainly because media issues are very interesting to me. The summer movie season is starting to heat up and this season’s television shows are coming to an end, allowing us to examine them completely. There’s plenty to talk about in the realm of literature, too. So, get comfortable, grab a drink, and settle in. There’s a lot of great stuff to read.

“Let’s Eat Fried Chicken and Paint Ourselves Black!”

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 21, 2007

Detective Mat writes about the rising trend of racially themed parties being held by predomenently white college students:

Of course if you ask any of these beautiful people if they’re racist, they’ll violently deny it. Which is actually to be expected. These are the ideals that surround them, whether by their peers or by the media they’re surrounded with. White dominance in American society has become more dangerous as time moves on by subtlely disguising itself as the negative stereotypes of black people pushed onto whites and deeming it as whats hip. For almost all these people, they’re only delusion to being exposed to black culture is exactly what is emulated here. As the product of white dominance, it is racist.

The Press: We Report and Decide!

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 21, 2007

Gautam Sen, of the blog Gyanoprobha, blogs about the arrest of his brother and its portrayal in the mainstream press in India:

But this is how it is being reported in some of the mainstream press. This the second instance of mainstream papers acting as stenographers to the police: simply passing on the police version, without bothering to check on their claims.

By way of contrast, the Hindustan Times simply repeats the lies put out by the police. “After a week long search”, my brother was supposed to have been arrested in Bilaspur while “trying to consult his lawyer to evade possible police arrest”. This is intended to create the impression of a diligent police force being obstructed by a cowardly terrorist for a whole week while they were busy searching high and low for him.

38th Carnival of Feminists

Posted by Jack Stephens on May 21, 2007

Team Rainbow is hosting the 38th Carnival of Feminists:

Team Rainbow has a full tent tonight, what with the philosophical feminists leaping through epistemological hoops, the audience cheering and jeering in the stands, the fire-swallowing radicals compelling us to see it another way, and the multiple oppression trapeze artists leaping across the chaos to make a connection from one oppressive paradigm to another. Over the din, one can barely hear the MRAs from their mindcages, screeching for yet another banana.
