ATR 122 – racism fatigue, Anita Tedaldi, communism, race in fashion

How do we tie anti-racism into policy changes when whites are so weary of talking about race? Did white privilege have anything to do with the seeming lack of guilt on behalf of the white mother who terminated an adoption of her South American son? Are accusations of communism about redistribution of wealth, or redistribution of other kinds of privilege? The recent blackface spread in French Vogue has once again raised the question: why can’t the fashion industry do better when it comes to race? Tami Winfrey Harris, Lisa Wade, and Minh-ha Pham discuss.

  1. Amy Pohler started in both Baby’s mama and Hamlet 2 where off colored racial references were used for cheap laughs. I’m not sure why anyone would think she’s be above using such unimaginative cheap humor.
