Thank you and goodbye from Carmen Van Kerckhove

2010-05-21

by Carmen Van Kerckhove Cross-posted on Racialicious, Love Isn’t Enough, Addicted to Race, and CarmenVanKerckhove.com This post probably won’t come as a huge surprise — I know many people have noticed how quiet I’ve been over the last few months. I want to let you know that I’ve decided to “retire” [...]…

Taking a hiatus

2009-12-09

by Carmen Van Kerckhove Sorry for the radio silence as of late! We’re going to take a hiatus and resume with new episodes after the new year. We’re working on some changes behind the scenes that will hopefully make it easier to get the podcast done each week. Enjoy your holidays, and we’ll talk soon!…

ATR 126 – gay rights, Precious, black men on CNN, mommy memoirs

2009-11-16 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

What are some strategies for overcoming resistance to gay rights in the African-American community? Does the movie Precious exploit black dysfunction? Did CNN’s special on “Black Men in the Age of President Obama” reinforce stereotypes about black gay men? Given the popularity of “mommy memoirs,” why aren’t there more women of color writing these books? [...]…

ATR 125 – oppression olympics, capitalism, Morehouse

2009-11-09 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

MLK’s daughter recently declared that her father didn’t take a bullet for same-sex unions. Why is it that marginalized people fight each other over scraps, instead of uniting to work toward justice for all? Capitalism as we know it is simply not sustainable. We discuss the work of economist Noreena Hertz, and explore the link [...]…

ATR 124 – Anti-Asian bias, Top Model colorface, large black women, hair hatred

2009-11-02 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

Since the implementation of affirmative action in the college admissions process, opponents of the policy have alleged that the changes reduce the chances of White and Asian high school students applying to elite colleges. Is that really true? Tyra Banks often tackles race on her talk show, so why did she get race oh-so-wrong in [...]…

ATR 123 – Latino in America, Halloween, Chinese adoptees, racist kid

2009-10-26 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

Did CNN’s documentary series “Latino in America” break new ground? Or did it simply reaffirm existing stereotypes? Why do so many people use Halloween as an opportunity to dress up as someone of a different race or ethnicity? Are the so-called “homeland tours” — in which countries like China and Korea invite adoptees to visit [...]…

ATR 122 – racism fatigue, Anita Tedaldi, communism, race in fashion

2009-10-19 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

How do we tie anti-racism into policy changes when whites are so weary of talking about race? Did white privilege have anything to do with the seeming lack of guilt on behalf of the white mother who terminated an adoption of her South American son? Are accusations of communism about redistribution of wealth, or redistribution [...]…

ATR 121 – casting actors, Australian blackface, Derrion Albert, privilege and oppression

2009-10-12 :: Carmen Van Kerckhove

Why does Hollywood continue to whitewash movies by casting white actors to play characters that were originally people of color? A popular Australian TV show is being criticized for featuring a blackface skit, but can we apply American attitudes toward race to other countries? Would Derrion Albert’s death be any less of a tragedy if [...]…
