The limitation of racial satire is the subject of Carmenâ€™s rant today. What happens when people take it at face value and laugh for the wrong reasons? Should artists and comedians be held responsible for the way their work is perceived? We discuss many different examples of racial satire, including the new film CSA: Confederate States of America, the Chappelle Show, The Boondocks, Margaret Choâ€™s comedy, Sarah Jonesâ€™ performance art, and the new play Jewtopia.

MIXED MEDIA WATCH NEWS UPDATE
Jen discusses three recent news items. The Duke Lacrosse team rape case reveals some interesting (racist) patterns in the ways in which the media describe crimes perpetuated by black people versus those perpetuated by whites. Hines Wardâ€™s visit to South Korea prompts the government to make some serious changes in the way it treats mixed Koreans. For the first time ever, a mixed black/Chinese woman enters the Miss Chinatown pageant in Los Angeles and wins third place! Finally, we mourn (ahem) the conclusion of the show we love to hate, Black.White.
RACE IN THE WORKPLACE
Another installment of this favorite segment! Daniel shares his experience with diversity training, and an anonymous listener writes in about the perception that minorities (especially Latinos and Blacks) donâ€™t need or donâ€™t want jobs.
