I've been reading up on Racefail '09, a task both fascinating and deeply painful. I would strongly recommend these articles, and all associated linked articles, to everyone. I sincerely hope your reaction will not be nearly as personally wracking as mine.

Go read. It's worth your time. Not necessarily good or bad, but worth it. No seriously, this shit matters:

Mary Anne Mohanraj Gets You Up to Speed, Part I
Mary Anne Mohanraj Gets You Up to Speed, Part II
Taking One for the Team: K. Tempest Bradford

And that's all I'm going to say on the subject. The whole thing makes me angry, and it makes me tired. Every time I try to put voice to my place within this debate, it comes out as nothing more than wrath and venom and unbridled rage. I can hardly look at it. The words crush my heart in my chest and steal the breath from me. It's physically painful to read, even when it's right on point and absolutely correct.

So I won't. I can't come from a place of contribution. So I'm going to shut up and point you to the people who are contributing. If you really really really need to know my actual thoughts on the matter, you'll have to get me very drunk first. Good luck with that.
