APC goes to the movies!
Also in RaceWire…
In response to the recent murder of Mexican immigrant Luis Ramirez and the acquittal of the young white men who allegedly killed him, RaceWire's Jorge Rivas points to the 1987 documentary Who Killed Vincent Chin about the murder of a Chinese American man in Detroit and the community organizing and trial that followed.

This time, we must do the same for Luis Ramirez."

3. "We did not torture prisoners." (statements by Bush, Rice, etc.)
No one contests number 2, so number 1 is wrong or number 3 is wrong. You decide.
writes at Bitch: Mattel is using feminism to sell the Bollywood Barbie® saying: “She allows girls to dream beyond and know that a woman has choices, having herself represented more than 100 careers in her lifetime. ”

Queering the APC blog
Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, 1950-2009 "It is difficult to calculate the impact of Sedgwick's scholarship, in part because its legacy is still in the making, but also because she worked at a skew to so many fields of inquiry. Feminism, queer theory, psychoanalysis and literary, legal and disability studies—Sedgwick complicated and upended them all, sometimes in ways that infuriated more anodyne scholars, but always in ways that pushed established parameters."
