  1. Hi Carmen,

    I just paused in the middle of this podcast to leave a comment. I’ve visited Race in the Workplace a few times after reading about the blog on Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist. Today, I read an interview with you in the latest issue of Bitch magazine and thought I’d stop by. What a great set of sites. I’ve just recently become addicted to podcasts so I’m very happy to add Addicted to Race to my roster.

    As I paused, you were just commenting about your search for Latino bloggers. I am one. I don’t, however, blog about race overtly so I may not be seen as a Latino blogger per se. And I’m a woman, but I don’t blog about feminism or anything overtly gendered so may not register as a feminist blogger. I blog about food, particularly as it relates to familial and social relationships, community, animal rights, and just plain deliciousness. I am just starting to think about how race intersects with vegetarianism, and specifically veganism, which is seen as the province of self-righteous, wealthy, white kids. Some of that stereotyping is understandable but, of course, hugely problematic and as I delve into the issue more, I plan on wrapping my head around it enough to formulate some pertinent blog posts on the subject.

    Anyways, as you were speaking about finding Latino bloggers, I was struck with the thought that you wouldn’t necessarily find me if I don’t list or tag my site as dealing with Latino issues. And yet, before listening to this segment of your podcast, I did a search of “Latino bloggers” and basically found some Xanga links and a few clippings asking, “where are the Latino bloggers.” Basically pigeonholing others as I myself might be pigeonholed!

    Back to pressing play. I’m eager to listen to more.

    Take care,
