Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 6, 1:13 PM

The Indian government doesn't want to seem threatened by the fact that China is paying for better transportation infrastructure that is essentially in their backyard.  India's neighbors are excited for the potential economic growth that this can bring, but weary of China's added clout and power throughout Asia.  As Parag Khanna argues is his new book Connectography, infrastructure and economic linkages will become increasingly more important to geopolitics and global economics; within that lens, China is certainly making a power move here.

Here is another example of cultural commodification and cultural appropriation.  As stated in the article, there is nothing illegal in this, but most companies stay away because the negative publicity for being sleazy is a enough of a cultural and economic deterrent to conform to the more accepted norms of society.

Being white, and a minority, in Georgia

Being white, and a minority, in Georgia | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"A generation ago, this Atlanta suburb was 95 percent white and rural with one little African-American neighborhood that was known as 'colored town.’ But after a wave of Hispanic and Asian immigrants who were attracted to Norcross by cheap housing and proximity to a booming job market, white people now make up less than 20 percent of the population in Norcross and surrounding neighborhoods. It’s a shift so rapid that many of the longtime residents feel utterly disconnected from the place where they raised their children."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, September 22, 3:41 PM

This article touches on some pretty weighty (and sensitive) topics, but in a fairly nuanced manner.  Local ethnic neighborhoods change as international migration patterns bring in new residents and this demographic shift can is currently impacting national political parties.  That's geography, various processes at a variety of scales that are all interconnected.

Community & Culture | NCAI | digital divide information | Scoop.it
American Indians and Alaska Natives have some of the richest and most storied cultures on the planet. Yet Native cultures—and the traditions, languages, and religious practices they encompass—often face threats from mainstream society. NCAI works to overcome these threats by educating non-Native people and turning back attacks on Native cultures and lifeways. Native culture is central to the identity of tribal nations and Native people. NCAI will continue to stand with tribal nations to protect Native cultures for today and for generations to come.

We Gon’ Be Alright: Notes on Race and Resegregation – Rising Up with Sonali | digital divide information | Scoop.it
FEATURING JEFF CHANG – The US Presidential election this year has inspired severe levels of anxiety, particularly among people of color who have borne the brunt of violent rhetoric from Donald Trump and his cohorts. If we believe the racist and xenophobic rhetoric, we deserve to be banned from entering the country, or pushed behind a wall, or imprisoned, or priced out of our homes. And if we are poor we deserve to remain poor. It is a difficult moment indeed.
