"Seventy percent of the 57,000 American Indians living in New York City are of Hispanic origin, according to census figures. That is 40,000 American Indians from Latin America — up 70 percent from a decade ago.

"The trend is part of a demographic growth taking place nationwide of Hispanics using 'American Indian' to identify their race. The number of Amerindians — a blanket term for indigenous people of the Americas, North and South — who also identify themselves as Hispanic has tripled since 2000, to 1.2 million from 400,000.'"

"Now, after the Missouri Supreme Court reversed a lower court's earlier parental rights decision, many more months are likely to pass before it's known who will have custody of a 4-year-old boy born to an undocumented Guatemalan woman and adopted without her consent by an American couple in Carthage, Missouri.

"In a decision handed down Tuesday, the state's high court ruled that Missouri violated its own laws in terminating the parental rights of Encarnacion Bail Romero, who was imprisoned after a 2007 immigration sting at a poultry processing plant.

"But instead of ordering the child returned to his biological mother, it sent the case back to a lower court for retrial."

"Oprah isn't exactly the outdoorsy type, which is kind of the point. Her visit occurred earlier this month, and she and her friend Gayle first stocked up at REI on 'sleeping bags, lawn chairs, water bottles and fanny packs too,' according to one eyewitness account. Her show will feature activities such as fly-fishing and mule riding. During her trip, she commented that she felt closer to God.

"Johnson says the exposure of Oprah's show to an audience of 30 million will be like 'an earthquake' that sends out seismic waves of culture change across the black community. His ultimate visitor to champion the parks cause to the black community, however, would be rap superstar Snoop Dogg.

"'All Snoop Dogg has to do is go camping in Yosemite and it would change the world,' Johnson told the San Francisco Chronicle a year ago. 'If Oprah Winfrey went on a road trip to the national parks, it would do more than I have done in my whole career.'"

t goes back to verisimilitude, I think. Both of these scenes are hinting at some sort of truth. Misty Knight is using racial history to get her way. [Luke] Cage is using a reclaimed racial slur to show how cool he is under fire. Both of these scenes depict theoretically black things. A kind of ownership of a very specific facet of American culture, or a freedom to express yourself about race in a certain way.

"But The Social Network is a movie based on real people. Mr. Narendra is of Indian descent. In an interview, he said he was 'initially surprised to see a white actor play him on screen.'

"A Google search turns up a picture of Mr. Narendra next to Mr. Minghella. The differences are striking. Mr. Minghella, son of the legendary director Anthony Minghella, is significantly shorter and he appears to weigh a fair bit less. He also looks significantly lighter-skinned than Mr. Narendra.

"Which brings up another issue. Many photographs not related to The Social Network show Mr. Minghella as a rather pale young man. But in pictures of him as Mr. Narendra, he appears darker. There’s another one that puts all the cast members together with their real-life personae; in this one, Messrs. Narendra and Minghella appear to have about the same complexion.

"Was make-up used to darken Mr. Minghella for the part? A spokesman for Sony Pictures said in an email it was not."

"Although the troubling racial subtext is more deeply buried here than in "The Blind Side" (where it's more like text, period), "Secretariat" actually goes much further, presenting a honey-dipped fantasy vision of the American past as the Tea Party would like to imagine it, loaded with uplift and glory and scrubbed clean of multiculturalism and social discord. In the world of this movie, strong-willed and independent-minded women like Chenery are ladies first (she's like a classed-up version of Sarah Palin feminism), left-wing activism is an endearing cute phase your kids go through (until they learn the hard truth about inheritance taxes), and all right-thinking Americans are united in their adoration of a Nietzschean Überhorse, a hero so superhuman he isn't human at all."

"While the 'Great Recession' impacts all of America, Black America is suffering from new economic trauma just as it emerges from the shadows of institutionalized racism that stunted its growth for generations. And while White America races to support entrepreneurial innovators and seed high-growth companies, Black America has been caught flat-footed and is in danger of being left behind in the dust of innovation-propelled technology -- relegated to the role of consumers who transfer much of today's Black earned wealth to the high tech entrepreneurs of tomorrow."

"White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen thinks Asian players are given privileges in the United States that Latinos are not afforded.

"In his latest rant, the outspoken Guillen also said he's the "only one" in baseball teaching young players from Latin America to stay away from performance-enhancing drugs and that Major League Baseball doesn't care about that."

"Despite what we may think of feminism, Latinas and our communities have not been immune to the societal changes that feminism has brought. According to a new report, Latino men admit to wanting more time to care for their children, Latinas are less worried about children growing up in a single parent household and Latino men and women overwhelmingly want their daughters to have interesting careers.

"So what do Latinas think of feminism?

"In the first entry of a summer project I’ve launched called “Summer of Feminista,” Elizabeth of International Dreams struggles with her mother’s view of feminism (“I do not need a man”) and her lived feminism (co-parenting with her husband). She reminisces about what feminism meant to her in third grade and what it means today."

"Lately, however, Jordan River has provoked a firestorm of controversy on SL's community forum, especially over Jordan River's most extreme forms of expression, such as an exhibit depicting Gilad Shalit, the IDF soldier held captive by Hamas, next to sculptures meant to depict eviscerated IDF soldiers. As with the pro-Palestine protests that stormed into Israeli and Jewish sites in Second Life this year and last, this seems like another instance where Second Life's Community Standards, which prohibit most forms of '[a]ctions that marginalize, belittle, or defame individuals or groups', cannot adequately account for the full range of political and ideological tumult in the real world."
