Your Black Readings for April 28, 2009

LMAO. I crack myself up. But nah, for real, check out these posts:

Missing Children and Media Coverage (or lack thereof)
, by T.R Xands

excerpt:
For any non-USians, you may have noticed that our fine country has a fixation on missing white children. You'd think they disappear every five minutes or something but as it turns out...that really isn't the case.

You gotta thank Nancy Grace.

And

Some Woman Didn’t Do Her Job: Single Mothers And The Destruction Of Society by Renee

excerpt:
When we examine the hierarchy of bodies as it relates to the western world there can be no doubt that the black woman has no institutional other. She is oppressed to maintain both white hegemony and patriarchy.

Rather than examining the ways in which privileged bodies work to ensure that the most vulnerable members lead lives of poverty, the blame is placed specifically on the oppressed for either an unwillingness, or inability to conform to socially constructed norms.

That's all I have for now. Enjoy!
