I Was Racially Profiled and This is What I Did

This morning, after I dropped the girls off at school, I donned my mom uniform (jeans, t-shirt, flip-flops, purse and sunglasses) and went out to run some errands. I needed to get them done and get home before noon because this weekend has the potential to be just ridiculously crazy-busy. I need to get prepared. So, off I went.       ...more

Barnyard Salon: Alpaca Shearing Day

Editor's Note: Deb's account of shearing her nine Alpacas is a fascinating peek into how the animals' fibers are painlessly removed, especially the "blanket" area. The results are wrapped in paper and stored to eventually be made into super-soft yarn, hats and socks. Thankfully, along with a professional shearer, her mind-reading mom was also on hand to help: -- Heather...more

The Onion’s Racist Treatment of Quvenzhané Wallis at the 2013 Oscars

I love the Oscars. Every year, I sit down happily with wine and treats to watch the movies that I’ve been checking out and loving get nominated and honoured. This year, Les Miserables was my favourite, and I really highly enjoyed the performances by the cast and the speeches being made by everyone involved. Oscar Night didn’t disappoint in its general award-ceremony-ness -- but then it did....more

“And there were only thirty-two comments. I mean, did she not love me enough to promote my post further? My sister’s post? The one I mentioned last week? About the diaper accident? One-hundred-seventy-four. And it was picked up by the Huffington Post. Was my lisp not good enough? Was I not good enough?” ...more
Awesome article. I found myself laughing and nodding in agreement. In the blogging world there ... more

Funny or Racist? Caroline Wozniacki Impersonates Serena Williams

During a recent exhibition match in Sao Paolo, Brazil against Maria Sharapova, former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki stuffed towels down her bra and shorts to impersonate tennis icon Serena Williams.  Well known for her curvaceous bod, Williams is often seen mocking herself and her big butt (even referring to #bigbuttproblems on Twitter).  But now the 22-year-old Wozniacki has been accused of racism by some observers....more
