Summer Offensive: Depp's Tonto, Paula Deen's N-Word, the NFL's R-Word

"Over the recent Fourth of July opening weekend, The Lone Ranger  was trounced by Despicable Me 2 at the box office.  I also found myself at a Subway deli looking at a cut-out of Johnny Depp’s Tonto.  And to be honest, as an Indian myself, it does not offend me as much as the  Washington Redskins mascot. Johnny is a good soul; Dan Snyder and Washington  Redskins fans are not."

Whitewashing: the disappearance of race and ethnicity from YA covers | Inside A Dog

Whitewashing: the disappearance of race and ethnicity from YA covers | Inside A Dog | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"This is my final week on Inside a Dog, and I wanted to kick it off by talking about something that I feel strongly about – the ‘whitewashing’ of covers of books in YA fiction. What exactly is this, you might ask? ‘Whitewashing’, in this context, describes what happens when the diversity contained within a story disappears from the cover of the book. So, for example, a book about a black-haired, black-skinned girl features a pale-skinned blonde on the cover. Or, a book about a brown-skinned boy features a pale-skinned boy on the cover. Or a book about an olive-skinned girl – well, you get the picture. "
