Causal racism isn’t just in America…



I don’t want to sound rasicst (and that in itself is a rasict statement) but I’ve noticed the differences in my side of the pantry/cupboard and my roommate’s side. She half Vietnamese by the way.

We both have one half of the cupboard, a total of three each.

My side is packed. I pretty much have no empty space.

Her side… well… she could put all of it on one shelf.

I know this to be a stereotype (that Asians don’t always fill up cupboard and fridge space) as another Asian find basically found out my roommate had a white mom because of how full the refrigerator was.

Please understand I don’t actually think this about Asians. I love my roommate a lot. We’re best friends. But it’s kinda ridiculous of much more food I have… and I’m a smaller person.

forgetting hot beverages and remembering them when they are cold beverages is a cruel reminder of the passage of time and how it can appear like nothing has changed

Today the Department of Awesome Parenting is sitting at the breakfast table eagerly hoping someone will make an awesome batch of animal pancakes just for them. Redditor ptgkbgte recently shared these photos of amazing pancakes that his friend (name currently unknown) makes for his own lucky kids using pancake batter dyed with food coloring.

Click here for additional photos.

We’re hoping more information surfaces about this creative dad and how he makes these fantastic flapjacks. If you happen to know who he is and/or if he has his own website, please let us know.

It’s becoming harder and harder to read other social science textbooks and other readings where African American and race is talked about.  As a anthropology student I am learning that “race” is a social construct and how not to use the term as it is not anthropological term. It’s not even a “politically correct” term.

Yet here I am reading a sociology textbook, talking about race and African American. I would rather ethnicity and Black be used.

Why “Black”? Because I had a “Black” anthropology professor talk about Black being a descriptor and not a “racial term” as this sociology book is saying. You can’t say African American since not all Black people in the USA are even from Africa. I know mean Black students who actually identify as Caribbean.

…perhaps Elizabeth was right, in a way; perhaps he did look at her hungrily; she just did not yet know the nature of the hunger.

Kelp forests have always been so…….alluring to me. I used to watch videos of orcas darting in between the stretches of green; I fell in love.
