Watermelons and cantaloupes

I've been looking for a hero this week and was about to give up when I found the following on feministing.com:





I love two things about this video:
  1. Telling someone what they are makes it way to easy to for them to squirm out of it by creating a "you don't know me" loophole.
  2. The two conversations he applies to race can apply to so many onther situations that I want to make it my mantra.
Unfortunately, I'm too easily distracted to mediatate.

Speaking of which, I had a delicious cupcake today. If illdoctrine hasn't materialized as my Hero of the Week, it totally would have been Susie.
