"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."

Meet just a few of the people working to reverse history and regain control of the foods communities eat:"
"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. "
