Hey just in case you think I have been too silent here let me just say that I have been noisy as usual elsewhere.
OK, so Tom of Automatic Preference has had a really great and useful discussion on race and whiteness on his blog.
I have weighed in there and he has posted an edited comment of mine as a blog entry too. Please read the Declartions of Whiteness post and comments for context.
Eugene of PudgyIndian2 has written two posts in response to some of the discussion. I think that the discussion of institutional violence is very important and I really recommend you stop by and say hello to Eugene. Well on his blog that is ... he is, afterall, a busy brother with a really whack work schedule.
I see that our Tourist Boycott of Australia Campaign signatures are still coming in, albeit slowly. Please encourage folks to sign up. I will renew my efforts and email folks again when I get back to Portland this Saturday.
In the meantime, this post is just to let you know that I am still obsessed with things that relate to race and racism. It is a good thing Anisa and it may be time to put that book together ... wonder if Rosalita wants an editing job that pays .... ummmmm .... nothing and some coffee.
Hey if you see me moms tell her I am OK. Yeah that would be you Cliff ... and while you at it say the same to me pops and the dogs ... yeah even the boerbull. Please broer! I will bring you back some Tequila in January.
Ps. If anyone in Joburg is close to Mooi, ummmmm ... the brother is unusually more whack than ever. His forwarded emails are making me worry. Please look in and make sure he is OK too ... he seems too damn happy. Sorry Guru the intervention process has begun!
###Another and final Ps###
Tom just directed me to Dave of Wandering the Ether blog and I must say that I am simply in awe of what he is doing. Way to go Dave and I am not saying that because you have highlighted my commentary. What you are doing is truly courageous and admirable. I will holla later and hope that my readers hop over to your blog now!
