Why I am Skipping Black History Month: Womanist Musings

Quote:

Today is the first day of Black history month.  Schools throughout North America are going to spend the next month educating students on the history of the people of the African Diaspora.  Teachers will pat themselves on the back for having inclusive pedagogy and many students of colour will only feel further 'othered'.  White supremacts will spend the month whining about the fact that a Black history month exists, and will therefore call it racist and exclusionary.

A week of racism in Israel

Quote:

On a recent Monday, more than 200 Jewish Israelis rallied in Bat Yam, a suburb of Tel Aviv under the banner 'Keep Bat Yam Jewish'. The demonstrators, most of whom were religious and young, were there to protest against romantic relationships between Arabs and Jews, particularly those between Arab men and Jewish women.

I did not go as a reporter. I went to bear witness. I had also volunteered to translate for a colleague, a Palestinian man, who does not speak Hebrew.
