I've been reading a lot of interesting things lately, but because the school year is coming to an end, I don't have much time to blog. So I created this handy list for our wonderful readers to look through.
A few pieces from Racialicious:
Seal and Heidi Klum have a vow renewal ceremony. The theme? White trash. Is it racist?
Confession: I watched all of the first season of the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Now Paramount Pictures and director M. Night Shyamalan are working on movie based on the series, and they don't seem to like the idea of having Asian leading characters (more from Racialicious and Racebending).
The Princess and the Frog and the Critical Gaze [Essay]: Great gathering of thoughts about Disney's upcoming film featuring the first (and possibly only) black princess.
From elle, phd:
Nativism 2.0: A woman on a student visa is accused trying to cheat the system so she can have her baby in America.
Possibly the oldest known sculpture of the human form is that of a full-figured female, carved from 35,000-year-old mammorth ivory. BBC headline called it a "grotesque vision of the female form" until they later changed the heading.
From Oddee (via Feministing):
Sexist vintage advertisements. This is a new fascination of mine. I am starting a collection to show how advertising has evolved (or not) over the years.
How about you, readers? Been writing anything interesting?
