My Latest Project: Now Racist in the U.S.
I have lamented on my blog that someone should start a list of all the things that are now considered racist so someone can avoid unwittingly saying or doing something that would land them in hot water.
Well, no one did.
So I took it upon myself. Presenting, Now Racist in the U.S.
It’s a work in progress. I’ve added as many instances of ridiculously overt racism as I could find in my Google Reader, but many of the links have come from friends I shared the site with while I was building it.
The allegations of racism are going to be popping up faster than one blogger, as awesome as I am, can keep up with. Therefore, I’m relying on my readers to A) spread the word about the list and B) send me tips on new racist code words or dog whistles.
As I get them, they will be added and I plan on updating you when I update the list.
Please read it and share it. There are tools on the site to put it on your Facebook or to tweet it out on Twitter.
Thanks to everyone who helped me with the site, and to Andrew for being a technical whiz.
