a new post up at guerrilla mama medicine about outlaw midwives zine, racism, and creative blocks.

space between the buzz words

an excerpt:

i spent so much time this summer giving free anti racism/anti oppression consultation to this publication.  and while i am sure i was not the only one who did this type of consultation, i do wonder what does it mean that a magazine publishes an article on anti-racism birth work, but doesnt acknowledge how racist it was toward a black woman who has been doing anti racism and birth/media work for years?   what does it mean that the editors makes the criteria of who they are willing to work with based on whether or not the you are ‘positive and expansive’ toward squat’s organizing?
