newmodelminority: latinosexuality: and some young men of color in my class wanted to challenge the idea that women dont get paid the same as men (b/c they dont go into the same field). when i shared that men who go into fields stereotypically assigned to women (i.e. nursing) they still often get paid more and… THIS! it’s also scary to see the MOC hold on to so many illusions of power that...

Barbara Harris is adamant that her sympathies lie with the children whose lives she wishes to prevent and not with their desperate mothers. Her attitude towards these women comes through clearly in her statement that drug addicted women are “having litters. They are literally having litters.”4 This sounds more like a discussion of animals rather than human persons, which is only reinforced in...

I came to post to add to the discussion for this week and I will momentarily, but I feel the urge to respond to the post about what matters at The University of MS. I know we have this whole resistance to “outsiders,” so before I say anything I will preface this by saying: I have been an Orientation Leader, Ole Miss Ambassador (As well as Athletic), Served in Columns, Served as...

I never really understood or even thought about illegal abortions or “abortion houses” until taking this class. I’ve seen For Colored Girls a few times, and I still didn’t really get it. We talked a little about Shirley Chisholm and her work with abortion laws on Tuesday and again, the reality of women performing abortions on themselves or allowing other women to do it just...

Words cannot properly express the amount of discontent, anger and sadness that I feel at this. While there were many movies in the category that showed the side of the Black/African Experience not seen, yet the Help wins. While I have my share of qualms with the some other movies in the category (Re: Tower Heist) nothing disturbs me more that than the continued lauding of The Help. We are in...

http://www.smithsophian.com/opinions/defense-of-chris-brown-shows-equality-for-women-still-distant-1.2782591#.TzyOdVyXQ8o After Chris Brown’s Grammy win, I knew that there would be some type of backlash and of course some insight to reminiscence about his past troubles.
