the debates

January 28, 2008 at 12:35 am (anti-racism, anti-sexism, Uncategorized, women of color)

so i am in mexico. and when i am in the states i dont vote. i never have voted. that is my confession. although i am pretty proud of my voting record.

my other confession is that i have been following the primaries like a religion lately. watching the candidates debates. listening to the pundits. reading articles.

i am not sure which confession is of a worse sin…

so i posted up the first two debates of gloria steinem vs melissa lace harwell on democracy now.  melissa is so quick and funny in the debate.  and gloria doesnt seem to get it.  that melissa is arguing against gloria’s appropriation of black womens lives to diminish barak’s lifestory.  reminds me of audre lordes letter in sister outsider when she critiques the use of her poem in a white feminist critique of african culture and genital mutilation…does anyone know if audre lorde ever received a reply?
