Media Watch: Korean Dramas – How the Media Creates or Changes Perceptions

Language Skills I started watching these shows, since Hulu added this category. What’s interesting to me, is that I’m beginning to understand what the characters are saying in Korean. Words are floating around in my head, because they’re repeated so often. I can read a few words in some languages, but I’ve never picked up […]

The Nice Good Black Man

Using an interesting quote from Classic NYer: But that being said, perhaps I can show you another point of view.

For Black Women: Please Have Sex With White Men

That got your attention, didn’t it?

It seems that I’ve been successful at convincing […]

Stop it right now. Stop those trite, irritating, and annoying expressions of “Well, it is like doing X against the blacks,” or “Well, it is like using the N-word to describe group Y,” or the all time favorite, “Group Z going through this discrimination is like doing this to the blacks.” For real though, those […]

District 9

District 9 is the first major film effort of director Neill Blomkamp backed by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings maestro). Shot documentary style, it is funny, gory (I likes!), and action packed.
