Critical Thinking

Just wanted to share a couple of opinion pieces that offer us the opportunity to think critically about some current pop culture and social issues... things you and I are listening to or discussing at home or in the work place.

Daria's article, "gwen stefani's L.A.M.B. -- love asians, (they're) my bitch" in LoudMouth Magazine (might have to scroll down to page 8 in the link... but it's well worth it)

Tayari's piece on "confessions of a video vixen"... the book that's making the discussion rounds among many of us... and that many are dismissing as trash. Tayari offers an academic approach to looking at the book.

Keith's piece on the politics of the missing, lost, and found.

And there's always Bitch Magazine, which offers tons of great articles analyzing pop culture.

Check all of them out.
