I'm not feeling this piece because it seems to be that old parlor game, Police the Race/Ethnicity. But this may be my own interpretation. Thoughts?--AJP "[N]ow they’ve found the perfect 'white lie.' They can use to it drive home the point that she is brown, that despite those blue power suits and that nice all-American National Guard husband, she is different, not one of them. They can now do it without being accused of playing race politics. They are hoping this might mark the beginning of the end for this particular shooting star story. Haley’s comet — the new face of the American South — now revealed to be an optical illusion. Now she’s brown, now she’s not."

"Yet the three million professional, long-term home caregivers today are faced with a rapidly aging Baby Boomer population and a lack of adequate support, compensation or respect. Yesterday in Washington, the National Domestic Workers Alliance held what they called a Care Congress, an event where they introduced a campaign to 'transform long-term care.' The campaign is designed to push legislative changes to Medicare and Medicaid—creating jobs by increasing the amount of money eligible people can spend on at-home care and allowing a rapidly aging population to avoid institutionalization.

"Labor Secretary Hilda Solis praised the work of home care workers—a group comprised primarily of immigrant women..."

"Asian women in Canada find racial discrimination more hurtful than sexism, according to new research from the University of Toronto's psychology department.

"'We found that Asian women take racism more personally and find it more depressing than sexism,' said lead author and doctoral student Jessica Remedios. 'It feels like a more personal attack.'

"The study is based on a sample of 242 women of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Japanese and Filipino descent living in Canada. Most were University of Toronto students who have been in Canada for an average of 10 years."

"I am angry that we live in a world where women have to be validated as being funny if the guys like them. I am angry that we have come to a point where women in Hollywood are sending emails out like it is a political campaign to encourage people to see this film because things have become this desperate."

"A Brooklyn-based Hasidic newspaper removed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and another woman from the now-iconic photo of the Obama national security team watching the raid that killed Osama bin Laden from the White House Situation Room.
"Der Tzitung sent a statement to the press, apologizing for altering the photo—which the White House had forbidden news outlets from doing—and explaining why they had removed Clinton and Tomason.

'In accord with our religious beliefs, we do not publish photos of women, which in no way relegates them to a lower status,' the statement said in part. '... Because of laws of modesty, we are not allowed to publish pictures of women, and we regret if this gives an impression of disparaging to women, which is certainly never our intention. We apologize if this was seen as offensive.'"

"Writers take us to different places and introduce us to all kinds of people throughout vast periods in time. In one story, we might travel from 1920s Harlem to Nigeria in the midst of terror during the Biafran War, and then on to the mystical Oguta Lake, all without ever having to set foot outside our door.

Words and writers should never be underestimated, and there are hundreds of brilliant authors who deserve our appreciation and respect.

To wrap up Women's History Month, BlackVoices.com put together a gallery of 40 influential black women authors. Some names you may know and others you may not. Their varied backgrounds give way to multi-faceted perspectives."

"ask O'Roarke what she thinks the future holds for Travellers. She is worried. "That TV programme has put our work back 100 years. And if these women lose the little support they have, they literally will be left to rot."

She is concerned that problems affecting Traveller women and girls, such as lack of education, forced and early marriage, and abuse within the home, are not being taken seriously."

"The culture war being fought in newspapers and between activists highlights subtle changes in Indian society and an increasing willingness among some women to report domestic abuse. Women's groups say the campaign by men to change the law is nothing more than a backlash from those opposed to female empowerment."

"On one level, you might say this altering of appearance is just women enjoying themselves — selecting different colours, shapes and styles to become what they want. But there is more too it than that; precisely because they never make themselves look darker."
