Race, Society and the Internet: The Hump Day Hmm for 8-8-07

A lot of people have said in comments and emails that what they have to say on this topic, "Is the Internet the Rainbow Connection?" exceeds a comment and want to write their own posts. Therefore...by popular request, the Hump Day Hmm topic for this week will be race, society and the Internet---any angle you would like to take.

If you've already written a post recently or at any time in the past, e-mail it to me at j pippert at gmail dot com.

When you write a post, do the same.

If you feel stymied, but have commented, take your comment and post it. :)

A favor of other bloggers who are or already have discussed this topic...would you could you mention this Hump Day Hmmm or my email? I know the discussion is broad and wide. I'd love to collect in one spot links to all the posts so people can easily find them for reading.

Muchas gracias!

if i wasn't getting ready (frantically) to leave town i'd do this for sure. i'm so busy i'll probably do a quick and fluffy good-bye post later today. but here's a promise--when i come back that will be one of the first posts i tackle.

I can't wait to read these. Don't think I'll have time to write one, unfortunately.

Okay friends!

This is going to be a two week love fest on this topic...BIG FUN EXCITING details to follow when I am released to release them. :)

So more time for writing...thinking...reading...and I will even provide inspiration via some awesome questions commenters posed.

So glad for all of you...truly. :)

Thanks for the extension. I tried to get my head around what I wanted to say today, but nah, wasn't gonna happen!

You'd think that as a Diversity/Intercultural skills teacher I'd have lots to say on this topic. And I do. But, ironically, I'm just gonna read this time around...

Argh, 2 weeks isn't enough for me. I know what I want to say and I am ready to say it BUT it will take a bit of time to write it up properly and with the JPs coming up AND our big family vacation happening at the start of the week--we'll be away until the end of August--, it might have to wait until I get back.
