The Angry Black Woman “This blog is anti-racism and anti-sexism. It’s anti-prejudice of all kinds, but I focus mainly on racism and sexism because I am a black woman. There are three bloggers on this site. All of us are angry, black, and female. Only one of us is the Angry Black Woman. Why am I angry? Lots of reasons. The aforementioned racism and sexism. The way that our culture perpetuates racism and sexism then lies about what it’s doing. The fact that minorities, poor people, immigrants (both illegal and legal), and other marginalized parties are still treated like the gum on the shoe of the white, male power structure in this country and yet we’re all told that things are getting better.”
Racialicious is a blog about the intersection of race and pop culture. The writers are amazing, the commenters are (mostly) smart and rocking. Start your day the Racialicious way!
Jay Smooth, video blogger: Ill Doctrine and Nil Doctrine. Jay is funny, smart, kick-ass, silly (watch for shots of his cat in the background as Jay rants and raps). I love Jay!
Resist Racism This blog is also smart and kick-ass, with a focus at times on inter-racial adoption issues and the levels of racism experienced by adopted children of colour raised in white families.
Angry Asian Man “I’m not as angry as you think. Yes, racism angers me. But I’m not here sitting in front of the computer, hating whitey and plotting revolution. This is just a subject that has always interested me – pointing out racism and noting any and all appearances of Asians in mass media and popular culture (the good and the bad). It’s something I care about.”
Reappropriate “The name ‘reappropriate’ has been with me since the beginning. It refers to the appropriation of minority thought, culture, and identity by the white mainstream. This blog is intended to take back the power to define myself for myself, to appropriate myself back from everyone else – hence, ‘reappropriate’. ”
Restructure! “I am a heterosexual, cisgender, and currently able-bodied Canadian woman of colour. The original intention of this blog was to make use of the “illusion of objectivity” and avoid the words “I” and “we” as much as possible in my posts. I attempt to throw off the white gaze and the male gaze from myself, and to throw the gaze on to whites and males, among others. I try to reframe the discussion and restructure knowledge. I’m a geek who tries to break it down for geeks who can’t read between the lines.”
MuslimahMediaWatch “Muslimah Media Watch is a forum where we, as Muslim women, can critique how our images appear in the media and popular culture. Although we are of different nationalities, sects, races, etc., we have something important in common: we’re tired of seeing ourselves portrayed by the media in ways that are one-dimensional and misleading. This is a space where, from a Muslim feminist perspective, we can speak up for ourselves.”
