Quantitative Analysis - Why Ferraro's Claims are Inaccurate

by democrattotheend
Much has already been said about Geraldine Ferraro’s controversial comments implying that Obama wouldn’t be where he is if he were white (or a woman). The purpose of this post is not to attack or defend her comments, but to test her hypothesis that Clinton has been hampered by her gender while Obama has been helped by his race by looking at the exit poll numbers for people who said that a candidate’s race or gender had any influence on their vote.

Oracle : lutte contre le terrorisme ou délit de facies ? - PC INpact

by mbertier (via)
Si votre nom a des racines nord-africaines, vous êtes automatiquement soumis à une procédure de vérification qui a presque l’odeur d’un délit de facies. Par contre, si votre nom fleure bon les origines nord-américaines, le bon Oracle disparaît et le logiciel vous est servi sur un plateau.

Bono & His 'Cheeky' Representation of 'A Lot of Africans Without a Voice'

by avivamagnolia (via)
Bono's hubristic declaration that he "he represents a lot of people [in Africa] who have no voice at all …. They haven’t asked me to represent them. It’s cheeky but I hope they’re glad I do' smacks of celebrity colonialism–a rather glamorized bastardization of old school colonialism [at the very least]. He's impinging on Africans' agency by inserting himself into dialogue with African leaders who have no accountability to the very Africans Bono is trying to 'represent.'

[BBC] Protests over Survivor 'tribes'

by ravi
Hispanics Across America founder Fernando Mateo called the move an "offensive and cheap trick" to boost ratings.

"What will it mean for a team - a race - to fail in a battle of wits and strength against another race?"
