I had the opportunity to write for +Quartz about racism and whiteness. What's more, I had the opportunity to highlight important work being done by Nell Painter, Lisa Corrigan, A.D. Butler, Marcus Shepard, Baratunde Thurston, Sybril Bennett,Tim Wise, Talib Kweli, Killer Mike and so many others. Please read and share!
Being white means you have a responsibility to find out why people before you felt it necessary to dehumanize people of color—and why so many others feel that doing so is still necessary.

The only way to stop racism in the US, of for the US citizens to become American. Not African-American, Italian-American, Cuban-American, Chinese American and just be American. You divide yourself, you label yourself and then wonder why race becomes an issue? Be who you are, the fore founders risked life and limb to give you freedoms that you take for granted, and then complain about. Be American! Be PROUD to be American! Don't label yourself, you are American. You are born a color, you are born a sex, and you were born American, starting taking pride in that and not seeing it as curse. 

America, Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. Honor what was fought for, for you to be able to stand on the Worlds stage and say "I am an American." Not "I am an Anglo-American (or is that racist?)

#RachelDolezal 's  #Facebook  resignation from the ‪#NAACP‬ is just one more example of how ‪#technology‬ enables ‪#‎passing‬ for us all. Wish we could talk about this aspect, along with the issue of ethical anti-racist advocacy and all the other important news stories we missed this weekend.
Welcome to the future. A time when you can use technology to edit anything about yourself—your location, occupation, status, style, face and even your race. While some people grow accustomed to the sights and sounds of diversity and the ideal of equality, others experience “wrong skin,” significant discontent with the racial identities they’ve been assigned at birth and the stereotypical roles associated with those racial identities. NAACP spokes...

I ❤ #ShelbyMitchusson  language version of +Eminem  #LoseYourself    #TheRealSlimShady   #music   #np   #hiphop   #rap   #Eminem   #ASL   
Mitchusson's movements and signs work together to give deaf viewers a fuller version of the song, and it's amazing to watch.

+Eminem #TheMTheMarshallMathersLP  Turns 15 #TheRealSLimShady   #tbt   #music   #np   #hiphop  
More than a decade after Eminem "The Monster" (aka Marshall Mathers, aka Slim Shady) disrupted mainstream hip-hop culture, he is even more hated, contested, and celebrated. His albums, autobiographies, and motion picture catapulted him into the upper echelon of American cultural icons.
