in the immortal words of failblog, FAIL.

1. speaking of race does not make you "racist". in fact, if you don't talk about it, how are you ever going to deconstruct and deal with it? 400 years of white supremacy doesn't just get swept under the rug. like any other energy, it has simply changed form. see: damali ayo.

2. this "post-racial" thing is bullshit. it has come up as some kind of feel-good guilt assuager (look! we elected obama! we're ok!), but anyone who's been doing any kind of real, healing work around racism/race knows better. see: tim wise.

so it begins...
