Wednesday Blog Roll Revision: End Of Fiscal Year Edition

June 30, 2010, 9:46 pm

We at Tenured Radical want to welcome two pseudonymous blogs to the blog roll on the left.

We Are Respectable Negroes features Lady Zora, Chauncey DeVega and Gordon Gartrelle as cultural theorists with an attitude. Want to talk about race? I mean really talk? Well, pull up a chair. A recent poll asks readers, “How man of you use a ‘white’ voice for phone interviews?” (56% of respondents, in case you were wondering.) This blog goes after homophobia, racism, religion, frank conversations about unusual white people, politics, African-American history and culture, teaching, music, popular culture, and other commentary on the current state of our post-racial (not) country. Read it. I have no idea who these bloggers are, but they have settled on their plot to stay.
The second blog is Breaking Up With New York. Full disclosure: I know this blogger, and she reads me, but had no idea she was such a beautiful writer. Really. Urban Exile isn’t an academic, and I wouldn’t be surprised if, in the end, this blog became a platform for a book. There are only five posts right now, so you have time to get in on the ground floor.
