Media and popular culture. White flight in networked publics?
The state and violence. After growing up in the 's and 's in Atlanta, Georgia, I got to see the civil rights movement and the women's liberation movement up close and was involved because my parents were liberals who fought for blacks and other minorities to have equal rights, were feminists, and who also fought even then for gay rights. I am fortunate to have been raised by people who set me on the same path of caring about social justice.
How far have we come in seeing social justice I enjoyed this very much. How far have we come in seeing social justice?
Not as far as I would like. Look at the current presidential race and the elections where Republicans have sought to disenfranchise those who they fear would vote for Democrats.
Look at the birthers who despite seeing both of Barack Obama's birth certificates long and short form published, hearing Hawaiian officials discuss the fact that his birth was registered at the time of birth and the fact that the hospital where he was born sent them the registration info and have their own records, etc still insist he is a Kenyan Muslim because he is half black.
The issue of race, gender, and class are very much alive.
In gender, the war on women's reproductive rights is as fierce now as it was in the 's and 's with Republicans and religious conservatives battling to control each woman's vagina and uterus. They also seek to destroy the social safety net so to offer the wealthy tax breaks. With ethnicity, we have Asians who are high achievers and Hispanics who break and enter into country illegally and all of the issues involved with this.
So, race, gender, and class all are topics that are very much alive and well and important right now.
My only complaint about the book is that some of the essays about blacks make the presumption that they are perpetual victims when in fact, they have the same opportunities to go to college and have a good life as anyone. I have lived through the years of the changes and hate to see writers like Shapiro in his essay in this book come up with nonsense like his assertion that blacks can't catch up with whites financially because whites get inheritances and blacks don't.
This is absurd.
