"While RaceFail09 has many similarities to imbroglios about race and racism in the past, I believe its events have gained a unique momentum because they are not focused on one instance of racial prejudice, but spring from something enormous: challenging white authority.

I didn't grasp this until I compared RaceFail09 to Jim Crow era reckless eyeballing; the actual offense behind the label reckless eyeballing is challenging white authority."


From Reckless Eyeballing in the 21st Century


What is changing at this point, is that we're giving up the hope of working with broken social contracts. We're giving up on trying to engage in negotiations and reconciliation with people and groups that place their primacy and our marginalization as a price to admission. We're making our own.

Oooh! I love the juxtaposition of these two. It's like "here's what happened" followed by "here's what we're doing about it."
