Chris Rock just pointed that out to “the industry” in the Hollywood Reporter:

…but forget whether Hollywood is black enough. A better question is: Is Hollywood Mexican enough? You’re in L.A, you’ve got to try not to hire Mexicans. It’s the most liberal town in the world, and there’s a part of it that’s kind of racist — not racist like “F— you, nigger” racist, but just an acceptance that there’s a slave state in L.A.

InSelfDefense12wThis editorial cartoon, In Self-Defense, by cartoonist A. B. Frost, ran in Harper’s Weekly on October 28, 1876, on page 880.

The HarpWeek blog explains:

This image dramatically condemns the brutal racism of some white Southerners against blacks. The white man has killed a black child, and his plea of “self-defense” exemplifies the perspective among Southern whites that Reconstruction had led to “black rule.” The cartoon appeared just a few weeks before the presidential election.

This video from Bolivia’s Alma Eterna is a couple of years old but the message is timeless. In Ayotzinapa and Ferguson, we are all Guerreros for La Liberatad — fighters for freedom.

A school in our neighborhood recently held a “Dress as Your Heritage Day.” For one Friday, students were encouraged to wear items representing their backgrounds, and some did. Students walked around campus in a combination of family heirlooms and seemingly exaggerated symbols to reflect their racial/ethnic groups. The rationale underlying this day was cultural celebration, […]
