My post, Why is the “Normal Television Family” Always White? has been crossposted to Racialicious today (with my enthusiastic permission, of course!). I’ll be stopping in periodically to join the discussion.
Oh! I should mention in the same vein that I’ve also been made a contributor at Ars Marginal, which looks at arts and entertainment from outside the straight-white-cis-male-etc narrative. I’ll be posting some original content there, but I’ll link to it here when I do.
I’m very excited about both! And humbled—I often feel like I’m in a constant state of learning to Fail Better with regard to *-isms myself. But for me, a large part of that work in progress is speaking up and ranting and obsessing about it . . . and I know for a fact that sharing my journey regarding institutional *-isms has already helped make the people close to me more thoughtful about such things, as well. So I’m very, very honored to start being a small part of raising public consciousness in the wider world.
Happy Election Day to everyone in the U.S.!
