Our Legacy is Rarely Found in 'His'tory . . .

. . . And when it is, it is tempered to make little of the actual happenings. Dark skins are rendered pale and discoveries are credited to the pupils. Even religions leave out the original worshipers. This has gone on for centuries and sometimes it seems almost impossible to ebb the flow of mis-education.

This will end as we recognize our power. We know what it's like to be that Stranger In A Strange Land first hand. We don't need exotic offlanders to tell that story. Our power is in writing our own stories, telling of our families, writing down our advice, creating our own myths, magical worlds and fantasies to be filmed and shown to the world.

The Color Fantasies of Whiteywood

An interesting article. It' kind of an old article by just a year, but still interesing nontheless since we're still reeling from the aftermath of "Avatar-fever" that has swept through this social networking-obsessed ipod generation. White guilt described here is more or less, ironic creative bias, ignorance, and a hint of pop cultural racism all wrapped up into one. Hollywood's white elite realize that they can't outright be prejudice on screen so instead they do it in subtle ways, by painting…
