Meet the US woman who is backing African-American gun clubs.

Samantha Sorillo is vice president of Miami's Black Arms Gun Club.

(Basically) separate but equal, right?

From the article:
"The club says it welcomes people from any background as long as they support the group's goals and agenda."

Well, that's good. I was wondering how they determine a person's African-American-inity.

Yeah, that's why I put "Basically" in my comment. The goals and agenda of the group are to teach every Afro-American person how to be competent with firearms. I'm sure their membership will be flooded with Republican NRA lighter people.

It would also be against the law for them not to put that caveat in most likely; so it's hard to tell if the instigators are really happy for lighter people to join. I know what I predict they really feel...and it ain't harmonious.

So by "basically" you mean "not at all".

Glad we cleared that up, because that's the only charitable way to view what you said.

Claudia Rankine: On Whiteness - American poet Claudia Rankine explores the ubiquity of dyed blonde hair.

Only made it half-way through before I got too pissed off to carry on. Allegedly white people are signalling their racial "whiteness" when they wear white clothes, and the same is true for people who dye their hair blonde. This is said in the broadcast despite acknowledging that blonde is indicative of youth. I dare say there is no similar series where a white person talks about "blackness". Big fail, radio 4.

No the post is about the link I posted. Just thought I'd drag in that image 'cos it references blondeness.

I don't know what I'd take from the image, except that the girl on the right doesn't look like a sex doll and so is preferable :dunno:

The thing that struck me about it was that this is how liberal women are being represented. Liberal women look like that, and so you would choose a sex robot over one.

As for the blonde thing, what are black women signalling when they dye their hair blonde?

Yup, and also the primary/only useful function of a Significant Other is as a sex object.

Maybe often the same thing white women are "signalling" when they dye their hair green.
