Finally succumbed to the tumblr gods. More on my work at adelinekoh.org; and I tumblr more often at dhpoco.tumblr.com. I write for @profhacker and tweet at @adelinekoh.

    Who Really Cares Who Started It? On the Slaughter in Gaza #GazaUnderAttack →

    palumboliu:

    When people, trying to deflect the blame from Israel, say, “Well who started it [the violence in Gaza]?,” I can take the time to walk them back through the precise sequence of events, and all the way back to ‘48 and further. If I have the patience.

    However, that usually peters out and we don’t…

    Net Neutrality Links Library

    willrosswriter:

    This post is designed to give people coming into the Net Neutrality fight late a resource to help explain the issue. There are videos, articles, explainers, and more to help make a complicated thing simple in as many ways as possible - then a library of news and analysis for supplemental reading. Generally new content is at the bottom, this weekend I’ll try to get to date tagging all this.

    I’ll add, update, and improve readability as I go. What I won’t do is tell you what to think - that’s why I’m posting a wide range of journalism from a ton of outlets (the explaniest stuff up front.) These are the tools to decide what you believe, and what you want to do about it once you’ve explored the issue to your satisfaction. What to do with this info after you’ve digested it? 

    That’s up to you, I’m a librarian, not a general.

    Happy Reading!

    Why are women pitted against each other?

    This week, in episode 13, unapologetically-yellow and BlackinAsia discuss women versus women competition. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, in her now-famous TEDTalk, speaks of competition between women for jobs as a potentially good thing. But is it? From Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” to the pitting of female pop stars against one another to allotting space for only one female black rapper to be considered a great in the history of hip-hop, is it a good thing? For news stories, we cover Michael B Jordan’s casting as Johnny Storm; Garcelle Beauvais’s unsolicited advice to Beyonce; Piers Morgan losing his gig; Yuna Kim’s shocking finish at the Sochi Olympics. We give an update on unobservables ask from last episode, and we answer asks from jazzy-jay115 (discussions about anti-blackness in Kpop being skewed to an American context), uroppahatesu (our thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s latest song, “Lookin-ass n****), and a couple anonymous listeners.

    New podcast in which we pose the question, “Why are women pitted against each other?" and unapologetically-yellow breaks it down in the context of patriarchy!

    And we’re now on iTunes too by the way :).
