Shots in the dark
Though I’ve not managed to do much long-form blogging of late, I’ve gotten into the habit of making short, quick comments on quotes which I feel exemplify certain social issues which I’m interested in and posting them to my tumblr page. I recently shared some links to a few and I thought I would share links to a couple more here.
My thoughts on Barack Obama’s comments on women’s pay inequality from his State of the Union Address. I don’t go into that here but this comment is also very white-centric. It is white women who make 77 cents on the dollar, not women of colour, disabled women, queer and trans women, or even men of colour (especially Native American men).
I am also currently working on a piece for the blog on historical geography and one for my Medium page on Macklemore and the cult of the ally, which I look forward to posting. In the mean time I hope you enjoy these two short comments on contemporary racial issues.
