Can virtual reality be used to tackle racism? ~ BBC | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

by Melissa Hogenboom


"Scientists have now found that...ingrained racial bias was reduced when participants were immersed in a virtual body of a different race.


"To test their implicit racism, a team led by Mel Slater at the University of Barcelona gave participants what's called an implicit association test several days before the experiment. They were given the same test again after their experience in virtual reality.


"It was only the participants who had been placed in a dark virtual body that showed this decrease."

Why everyone should reject the term "People of color" | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

At first it might seem to you like an innocent, politically correct term used to talk about minorities, especially black people. But the closer you look at it, the more you’ll realize it’s so much more than that. Because, what exactly is a person of color?

If there was any doubt that the politics of the right are based in fear and resentment, the right-wing reaction to the death of Nelson Mandela laid it to rest, a moment that also laid bare the relationship between racism and opposition to the free agency of women.

The Strange, True Story of Kathy Bates' 'American Horror Story' Character, Delphine LaLaurie

The Strange, True Story of Kathy Bates' 'American Horror Story' Character, Delphine LaLaurie | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

So much in American Horror Story depends on the suspension of disbelief that it seems like lunacy to investigate the “true stories” on which it’s based. As in the more familiar forms of folklore, the story itself is less the point than the manner of the telling.

Body Snatchers of Old New York

Body Snatchers of Old New York | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

There was a lot to be afraid of in New York after the Revolutionary War. Burned buildings loomed out of dark, crooked streets, which met at strange angles. Fights broke out in the taverns, while thieves lurked in the shadows. Families huddled in shantytowns constructed out of ships’ canvasses, while garbage piled high on the corners. The city watch was nothing more than forty men with clubs.


Besides the thieves and the brawls, people feared the medical students. The young men in black suits who studied at Columbia College and New York Hospital did as their teachers from England and Scotland had done: they learned anatomy by dissecting bodies stolen from the local cemeteries. In London and Edinburgh, a quasi-professional class of grave-robbers known as the “Resurrection Men” dug fresh corpses from the cemeteries of the poor and brought them to the medical school. In eighteenth-century New York, the medical students robbed the graves themselves, sneaking into cemeteries on cold, moonless nights and carrying wooden shovels to avoid the loud scrape of metal on stone.


But the bodies on the dissecting tables in New York often had a different hue than the bodies in Europe.

Blacking up for Christmas in the Netherlands

Blacking up for Christmas in the Netherlands | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

Like every Dutch child, I celebratedSinterklaas every year. According to Dutch tradition, Sinterklaas, or Saint Nicholas, arrives in the Netherlands from Spain each November for a visit that culminates in him delivering sweets and presents to well-behaved children on the night of 5 December. This year, Sinterklaas has sparked a debate so fierce that even the UN has become involved.

malek's curator insight, November 30, 2013 1:59 PM

No one likes their festive traditions tampered with – imagine trying to implement a countrywide ban on Christmas trees in the UK – but emotions over Sinterklaas run deeper. Most Dutch people identify themselves as inherently liberal, yet attacks on Zwarte Piet have been construed as an attack on Dutch identity – which is political dynamite, given the rapid growth of the far-right in recent years.

16 year old Southern Indiana scout planning monument to Tuskegee Airmen | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

To obtain his Eagle Scout rank, the highest level in Boy Scouts, Molinari is working on a project to prominently honor the Tuskegee Airmen's service to the country and their presence at the airfield, which is now called Freeman Municipal Airport.



He plans to erect a larger, concrete monument that will display a large photograph and plaque near the airport's flagpole. The memorial will face the flight line and will include two benches, creating what Molinari termed a plaza allowing people to sit and appreciate the Tuskegee Airmen's contributions and impact on American history.

Mormon History and Indian History

Mormon History and Indian History | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

The problem with Mormon history is that it focuses on Mormons. I make this paradoxical statement to intentionally overstate the case—but there is some truth to it.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

When an entire Native American community, their neighbors, disappears, it doesn't get a mention in the annals of history, the stories of the past.


As Compton writes," the story of “the west” is more than the story of English-speaking European whites heroically exploring and settling it." While victors get to tell their stories, write the histories, what happened in the past did ocurr.


Compton says, "While telling the Indian’s side of the story will undoubtedly add an element of stark tragedy to our narrative, such a compound historical lens will be an important characteristic of a mature, holistic Mormon history." Important words for any one, group or individual, to remember.

The Indians who first feasted with the English colonists were far more sophisticated than you were taught in school. But that wasn't enough to save them


...Europeans had been visiting New England for at least a century. Shorter than the Natives, oddly dressed and often unbearably dirty, the pallid foreigners had peculiar blue eyes that peeped out of bristly, animal-like hair that encased their faces. They were irritatingly garrulous, prone to fits of chicanery and often surprisingly incompetent at what seemed to Indians like basic tasks.

It seems European-Americans feel the need to dress up in Asian or Native American garb on stage -- for why?


Most know not to put on black face, but other appropriations they continue with. 


Are they trying to be cool? Do they feel they don't have their own ethnic heritage to use for dress up? Do they feel white washed by the white label?

Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) - National Women's History Museum | Colorful Prism Of Racism | Scoop.it

Fannie Lou Hamer was born in Montgomery County, Mississippi in 1917. Forty-seven years earlier, the 15th amendment had given African-Americans the right to vote. In 1920, three years after her birth, the 19th amendment granted suffrage to American women. Yet, because of oppressive social circumstances, it wasn’t until 1962, when she was 45, that Hamer learned that she had a right to vote as an American citizen. From that day, Hamer became a leader in the struggle for civil rights, social equality, and economic improvement for the African-American community.
