Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”

If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.

Watch it on

Netflix (x)

Itunes (x)

Youtube (for now…)    (x)

NFB (x)

I watched this in class last week. It really makes you think about the bigger picture.

In class I learned that thee types of campaigns are selfish and self serving.  If you really want to help, just write a check.

The 50 Most Racist Political Cartoons

BY ADAM MARTIN 
Racist political cartoons are as American as apple pie (baked by a black mammy for Thomas Jefferson). They’ve long been used to stir up fear of minority groups depicted as encroaching menaces, be they African-American, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Irish, Jewish, and really anyone who isn’t a WASP.
As overt racism has become less socially acceptable, most artists have become less bigoted or simply toned down the ignorance in their artistic social commentary, but a select few still stoke the fires of insensitivity with caricatures of President Barack Obama that are both racist and disrespectful to the office he holds. With race still an issue in the 2012 Presidential Election taking place today, take a look at The 50 Most Racist Political Cartoons to see how far the country has come.  [Continue reading and view the other forty-nine cartoons.]


Very informative, a good read.
