From Erica: Shameless promotions
So here's a really quick post to follow up on some of the racism stuff we've been mentioning here. I've got a post in the works about weight loss, body image, and fat politics (who doesn't?), but first I thought it might be good to highlight some of the blogs we've linked to on the left, particularly Racialicious, but even more particularly a post that the blog's primary author made about African American women and body ideals. The post can be found here and I would suggest reading it all the way through, as she brings in a wide variety of resources to make her point.
