'Pay to play' on the Web?: Net neutrality explained

'Pay to play' on the Web?: Net neutrality explained | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it
Net neutrality explained. Will you have to pay more for Netflix, or a fee to be able to stream YouTube videos at full speed?
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

If you've wondered what all the rukus is about, this neatly explains it all.

Don't kid yourself into thinking this won't have gender bias, race bias, etc. -- it will. This is an issue of the  99%.

Activist Spotlight: Deon Haywood on Justice and the Movement in New Orleans

Activist Spotlight: Deon Haywood on Justice and the Movement in New Orleans | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

In May of this year, I talked to Deon Haywood, Executive Director of Women With A Vision in New Orleans about her approach to organizing. WWAV scored a significant grassroots legal and political victory in the last year with the NO Justice campaign, which removed hundreds of cis and trans women from Louisiana’s registered felony sexual offender rolls. Deon is a longtime activist in the city of New Orleans, with a history of organizing low-income women of color around reproductive justice, harm reduction, and human rights.

 

...We are not all in the same boat. And if we keep playing like we are, we’re not really going to make the kind of change we’d like to see. Because the women I work with are never going to be able to jump into the sex workers’ rights movement. They don’t feel like that movement is for them.

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 24, 2013 7:28 PM

One of my favourite articles. Rosa Parks, who helped start the civil rights movement in America, is often completely overshadowed by Martin Luther King, even though it was her actions of staying seated on that bus that spurred him, and thousands of African Americans, on. The fact that to this day, Luther King Jr. still gets more recognition than Parks is ridiculous, given that they were both heroes and hugely important to gaining civil rights in the USA.

On Equal Pay Day, Remember Women of Color

On Equal Pay Day, Remember Women of Color | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

April 9 is Equal Pay Day--a reminder that women workers still make less than their male counterparts. Around this time of year, my university's Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance usually holds a Pay Equity Bake Sale to highlight the wage disparities between men and women. The price of each baked good varies by customer to reflect the wage gap. In the United States, women make about $0.77 for every $1 earned by male colleagues; therefore, female students pay $0.77 for a brownie while male students pay $1. Some people love this event, others hate it. What I have always liked about the bake sale is that it not only reflects wage differences between sexes, but races as well.

I chose this article because there is another form of slavery happening in the United States. It may not be called slavery but it is definantly similar.

Costas question: Compare and Contrast slavery and this new form of punishment.

Happy Birthday LBJ

from Robert Shepherd:
"Today is LBJ's birthday. August 27 .... What a Team these two turned out to be LBJ & MLK. Sometimes they seemed allies, sometimes they seemed "enemies" (at least in public). This photo was taken immediately following passage of the Voting Rights Act. Somehow this president got it passed "against all odds." He made sure Dr. King shared the moment. (And the honor)"

We SHOULD have rights for everyone. I agree with that. But things are not and have not been set up to allow everybody a fair chance.

This is the story of a man that was part of the civil rights movement and was also gay. This is another reason that gays talk about the civil rights movement themselves.
