In Sociology, this week’s module is on propaganda and marketing.  For homework, we were asked to make a poster for an imaginary campaign either for a made-up product or a current social issue.  This is mine.  

So strong

(9.23.14) — Another morning in Amerikkka. Somebody thought it would be fun to desecrate the Mike Brown Memorial early this morning. I… I really can’t even. #staywoke #farfromover

Here’s a picture of some cops watching the memorial burn although there seemed to be no police at the scene when the fire department arrived.

7 racially coded phrases we need to stop saying about Black people

There’s no reason why everyday social interactions or even important policy discussions need to be derailed by the perpetuation of racist tropes. By consciously examining and unpacking what’s really being said when there’s talk about black people, everyone can help ensure the discussion remains as respectful and productive as possible.

The LA Times Covers Cornrows, the Hot New Trend for White Ladies 

arobynsong:

‘“Cornrows are moving away from urban, hip-hop to more chic and edgy,” says Reyman. “There were spiral cornrows at Alexander McQueen, and I did fishtail cornrows woven with fabric. I have also been incorporating cornrows into center parts and side parts. Just one cornrow or a couple on the side is really cool [as opposed to a headful], but they have to be on the right person with the right clothing. Obviously, McQueen is very gothic and strong, so that customer is looking for that Elizabethan or ‘Game of Thrones’ edginess.”

"I had always believed that I could do anything, and when you’re in school you can do anything. You can play any role, you can play any age, because that’s what you do at school. But the realization that they really didn’t make movies or TV shows about black women… I suddenly panicked. I just had this panic like ‘Oh my god, I spent all this time to do this thing that the industry is not set up for me to succeed in this thing.’ So I freaked out. I freaked out." - Tracie Thoms: Life After Juilliard
