Opinion: The bearable whiteness of being gay – In America - CNN.com Blogs

Opinion: The bearable whiteness of being gay – In America - CNN.com Blogs | Whiteness & White Privilege | Scoop.it
When I log onto my computer in the morning I check my favorite gay blogs. There, I will undoubtedly see images of people who don’t look like me attached to stories written by other people who don’t look like me. Above the page and to the right of the text are ads for various products being sold. They are modeled by people who don’t look like me. Maybe they are the underwear models made to be eye candy for the brand being promoted. Perhaps they’re the people used to represent the typical gay couple that would be welcome on that cruise, or in that hotel.

what's even more infuriating is that this blog post seems to pretend that 'gay' is a race--that whiteness is invisible, and that there are no politics between playing as black people.

A New Kind of Racism?

A New Kind of Racism? | Whiteness & White Privilege | Scoop.it
One study shows that, as racial discrimination lessens against blacks, whites are feeling victimized. That's pretty surprising, the researchers say, when black Americans still lag in areas such as income, home ownership, health and employment.
