Updating the Race-Philes: Obama, Etc. 2008

Okay so it's been so very long since I blogged about anything, but here are several items that contribute to our critique of race/gender/sex and power this season:

Here's someone making the point that race is more than merely relevant, it is a reason to vote:

And how does US imperialism factor in? Puerto Ricans don't have the right to vote in the election, but the outcome of their primary on June 7 will assign the final 63 delegates! (They may be the deciding factor!) The following video gives you a sense of how that likely may go.

You-Tube Video: SI, se puede!

And what about race is gendered, and vice versa?. .Here's an interesting article about how transgender people experience race.
