The post-racial revolution will be televised | Deconstructing Tribalism | Scoop.it
Still looking for post-racial America? Turn on the TV. A racial revolution is being televised, and vampires, zombies and headless horsemen are leading the way.

Jacqueline Keeler's insight:

Ask Guggenheim and other creators of these sci-fi, fantasy and horror shows to elaborate, and they say the same things: We try to reflect the world we live in; we grew up with friends from different races so we don't like all-white backdrops; successful shows such as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" prove that all of TV is getting more diverse.

 

TV shows that hire more racially diverse casts and writing staffs attract more viewers, a 2012 UCLA study found. Cable shows with 30% to 40% minority casts brought in bigger audiences; shows with casts and writing staffs that were less than 10% minority had the lowest ratings, researchers at the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA concluded.

The Rosa Parks Story

The Rosa Parks Story | Deconstructing Tribalism | Scoop.it

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was the greatest, most distinguished African American Woman Civil Rights Activist of our time. The woman known as “the first lady of civil rights” was born February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama to James McCauley and Leona Edwards, her parents, a carpenter and a teacher, respectively. Her ancestry was a mixture of African American, Cherokee-Creek and Scots-Irish, which some say accounts for her fair complexion. In 1932, Rosa married Raymond Parks, a barber from Montgomery, at her mother’s house.

How race still influences where we choose to live

How race still influences where we choose to live | Deconstructing Tribalism | Scoop.it
The sticky role of preference in preserving segregation — and how to change it.
Jacqueline Keeler's insight:

Every day renters walk into the Oak Park Regional Housing Center certain they don’t want to live on the east side of town. The east side of town, in this small suburb that borders Chicago, is geographic code for uncomfortably close to where the poor blacks live.
