Demographic shifts ahead! - LDP "Along with Washington, the regions surrounding New York, San Diego, Las Vegas and Memphis have become majority-minority since 2000. Non-Hispanic whites are a minority in 22 of the country’s 100-biggest urban areas."

"The New York Times Co. is not attending the National Association of Black Journalists convention next year. "We are supporting Unity," Desiree Dancy, vice president, diversity and inclusion, told Journal-isms on Friday.
"We're disappointed in the fact that NABJ pulled out of Unity and yet this is a time where the organizations are needed to come together more than ever," she said."

Missed this when it came out, but worth reading. - LDP "When Fernando Meza is asked about his identity, “I tell them that I am Indian,” said Mr. Meza, a parade participant from the Tlaxcala tribe. “They say, ‘But you’re Mexican.’ And I say, ‘But I’m Indian.’ ”

Mr. Meza represents one of the changes to emerge from the 2010 census, which showed an explosion in respondents of Hispanic descent who also identified themselves as American Indians."

"Axed Sky News anchor John Mangos has hit out at claims he is a racist and insists he still has the full support of the Chinese community despite his controversial on-air remarks earlier this month.

"Mangos exclusively told The Sunday Telegraph he deeply regretted the comments in which he referred to a man as being clearly Chinese because he had 'squinty eyes' and 'yellow skin'--but maintained that he meant no harm."

"The report by Clearcast, the body that vets all commercials before they are broadcast, found that TV advertising is 'drastically under-representing' the ethnic minority groups. Black, Asian and those of other ethnic minorities account for about 13% of the UK population.

"Only 1,130 ads used actors from an ethnic minority background in the main role, such as in the Premier Inn commercials featuring comedian Lenny Henry."

"Ironically, one of the recipients of the email was the Canadian Arab Federation (CAF), a group singled out by Kenney in 2009 for what he called its 'hateful sentiments' toward Israel and Jews. The immigration minister subsequently cut $1.2 million in funding for the Federation’s language and job search workshops for newcomers.

“'To parade people from ethnic communities in traditional costumes is such a superficial way for the prime minister to serve his own interests without looking seriously at the issues which concern these communities,' said CAF president Khaled Mouammar. 'It’s disgusting actually.'”

"The new narrative comes from the ethnoburbs, a term coined in a 2009 book by Arizona State University professor Wei Li to describe entire cities dominated by a nonwhite ethnic group. They are suburban in look, but urban in political, culinary and educational values, attracting immigrants with advanced degrees and ready business skills."

"b-listed: How do you think your work in the last five years has uplifted diversity?

Maegan: Just by being real. We have taken alot of heat for not following certain messaging but we have always been honest about who we are, what we experience in our communities and what people are telling us. Diversity has become such a buzzword almost to the point of meaninglessness. Diversity is not about holding hands to cover up difference. It is about acknowledging how difference works, good and bad and how we can build across not through or over difference."

"So, here, whiteness is being used to construct national identities – and national identity is being used to shore up whiteness’ power. There is only one way of being properly Australian, and both non-white immigrants (and their descendants, like me) and Indigenous populations are expected to emulate whiteness and the associated culture. In this country with a strong sense of national identity, there’s a strong, partially obscured sense that whiteness is what advocates of a unified national identity are really going for."

"Race is constructed radically differently across cultural contexts, and it’s often quite a shock to see how much. For example, we were having a conversation a couple of weeks ago about the case of Tarran Betterridge, an Aboriginal Australian woman who was denied a job because her skin tone was considered too light for her to be a proper Aboriginal representative. I realised that I would really have to go to some lengths to explain to you, a primarily US audience, how Indigenous Australian identities are constructed: a combination of ancestry, community acceptance and self-identification. From what I’ve gauged, in the United States, skin colour seems to figure a lot more dominantly in how race is constructed. And I’ve been thinking about how vital the particular history and cultural forms of a context are for constructing racial identity. "
