JC
Hey everyone, everyone’s abuzz about this Survivor news. Carmen and I were on MSNBC this morning, we were quoted in USA Today, and we have quite a few radio interviews lined up on the same topic. First up, Carmen will be on “The Ride Home” on Denver’s KOA Radio tonight at 8:10 pm Eastern time. You can listen to live via streaming audio at their Web site, just click here. We’ll fill you in on the other shows as we get more details.

LISTENER FEEDBACK
This episode is dedicated exclusively to listener feedback. Here’s what we cover:

  • The host of GOP Exposed calls in with a voicemail, asking why it is that black people are so rarely shown with black romantic partners or families on TV or in movies.
  • Alethia Hostetter writes in about intersectionality: how oppression, identity, and privilege intersect and interact in complex ways in people’s lives.
  • Faye, a 16 year-old high school student, emails us about how race sometimes causes tension in her group of ethnically diverse friends.
  • A listener calls in with a voicemail, asking how as a white person she can deal with the anger that’s often directed towards her because of her race, and the hostility she sometimes feels from black women towards her interracial relationship.
  • Alex Gombach writes in asking us if he should be offended when Chinese people call him “lo faan” or “lao guei,” terms used to describe “foreigners.”
  • Mark Lind emails us asking about the implications of race as a social construct.
  • Deborah Wilson writes to us in reaction to Carmen’s rant in episode 32 about the coded ways in which we talk about race without appearing to talk about race. She sees a similar dynamic in the backlash against disco in the late 70s
  • Ekachai Jiaravanont emails us in reaction to our jokes about the listener who asked if we date Asian men, since we talk so much about their problematic media representations. He thinks we trivialized and ridiculed the listener without understanding where the “angry Asian man” syndrome comes from.

Carmen’s BlogHer panel on identity and obligation

As we’ve mentioned, Carmen was recently invited to speak at the BlogHer Conference in San Jose, CA. BlogHer’s mission is to create opportunities for women bloggers to pursue exposure, education, and community. Carmen was a panelist for a session on “Identity and Obligation,” along with Karen Walrond from Chookooloonks, Maria Niles from Fizz, Dawn Rouse from I Am Doing the Best I Can, and Marisa Trevino from Latina Lista.

BlogHer has started releasing podcasts from the sessions, so if you’d like to listen to Carmen’s panel, please click the “play” button below or right-click here to download the MP3.

Here’s the description of the panel, which took place on July 29, 2006:

Identity & Obligation: Do you control which parts of your identity are exposed? Do you feel an obligation to represent for your gender, race or culture? Do you feel you’re not allowed to comment on issues facing a group to which you don’t belong? Maria Niles moderates a discussion with Karen Walrond, Dawn Rouse, Marisa Trevino and Carmen Van Kerckhove on how we slice and dice our identity.

Here’s the third and final installment of our special anniversary episode. In this part, we take a look at the humor of Jen and Carmen. Let’s just say that it’s a bit um… hit-or-miss. ;)

ATR 33 Pt 2 of 3 – August 3, 2006 – Voicemail 206-203-3983 – addictedtorace@gmail.com

And we’re back with part 2 of our special anniversary episode. Here’s a round-up of the favorite moments we cover in this installment:

In episode 11 we had an all-out debate over the animated series, The Boondocks. It’s not often that Jen and I disagree so vehemently about something, so we went for it and faced off against one another.

One of our all-time most favorite guests has been Joseph L. Graves, the evolutionary biologist and author of “The Race Myth: Why We Pretend Race Exists in America.” We revisit our interview with him in episode 13.

In episode 5, Carmen ranted about the tragic mulatto archetype that still dominates many of the media representations we see of mixed race people. As a result, mixed folks have to combat the idea that all of us are torn between two worlds, confused, doomed to eternal misery.

It was an honor to have the legendary writer Octavia Butler on our show. Sadly, Ms. Butler passed away earlier this year. She was a trailblazer in the field of science fiction, one of the only black women in the field. We look back at Jen ‘s interview with her in episode 15.

Also in episode 15 was our rant about diversity-speak, the new language that has arisen out of the diversity industry. It’s amazing how an entire vocabulary has developed to avoid talking about race.

Tune in next week for Part 3, the final installment of the anniversary episode! :)
