The altfriday5 blogs against racism

This week's questions were written by Guest Questioner sparkymonster in honour of International Blog Against Racism Week. She provides this link to helpful reading: http://seamonkey.ed.asu.edu/~mcisaac/emc598ge/Unpacking.html

<b>From the <lj comm=altfriday5>:</b>

<b>1. List 5 things which are basic common knowledge in your culture, which people outside are unfamiliar with. This is not about obscurity, but something everyday to you, that others go "bzuh?" at.</b>

<b>2. What was the last book you read that was written by a person who is a different race than you? Do you seek out books written by people of other races? Why? Why not?</b>

<b>3. What did you eat at dinner last night? Would you call it ethnic food? Why?</b>

<b>4. Has your gender presentation changed over the last 5 years? Has this change/lack of change been a deliberate choice on your part?</b>

<b>5. Do you discuss race and racism in your livejournal/blog or in person? Why have you made that choice?</b>

<b>6. Bonus question. Were you aware of International Blog Against Racism Week? Did you choose to participate in it? Why or why not?</b>



<b>The Questioner says: Don't forget your links!</b>
