I've been watching the HBO series Westworld and am interested in reading writings applying critical theory to the depiction of race in the show (including race/gender/orientation intersectionality). Everything between pop-culture articles/tweets/Tumblrs and academic papers is welcome. PoC authors especially preferred.
I'm looking for racial comedy, in English, available on video, or less preferably mp3. It doesn't need to be the exclusive topic of the comedian, but it should play a part. No preference for a specific racial background, although East Asian would be interesting to see, since I haven't seen much of it before. Examples: Maz Jobrani, Canada's own Russell Peters, Chris Rock.
Co-worker just ended a diatribe about different types of Black people. We want to see consequences for this person. How do we write this report to HR? [more inside]
Are you attracted to people of races different from your own? [more inside]
My girlfriend (white, both parents English) and I (dark-skinned, both parents from Sri Lanka) met an American couple in a bar (here in Australia). They seemed very adventurous, educated and intelligent but became very VERY serious when we said we planned to travel in the Southern States of the U.S., suggesting that - after dark at least - the whole area is still (and I quote) "maybe a bad idea for a mixed-race couple." Are they right?
