Blog Against Racism
Tomorrow’s Blog Against Racism day. I have a good post in me. I hope I can get it written for tomorrow. Then again, tomorrow’s just a beginning:
December 1, 2005 - the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ heroic act of civil disobedience on that Montgomery bus - [is] “Blog Against Racism” day, in which people post something on the very broad and complex subject of racism. You don’t need to have a political blog to participate. Race, after all, affects almost every aspect of life in one way or another. Your post might be literary in nature, or historical, or concern current issues in need of political attention. You might take the opportunity to debunk scientific racism, or write poetry or essays about personal experiences, uplifting or depressing.
With luck, the discussion engendered will endure past midnight on December 2.
