Blog against Racism Day

December 1st, 2005: the fiftieth anniversary of Rosa Parks' action in Montgomery, Alabama.

This was suggested by Chris Clarke, who I am fortunate enough to have been reading for years on USENet before he even started his blog. A while back he commented on a cartoon he felt was racist, and received many dissenting comments because it was felt the cartoonist's intent was benign, but racism is inherently evil, therefore a benign cartoon can't be racist. Hmm.

I'm not sure what I'll write yet - racism in Australia has a whole different history from racism in the States, although the roots of both obviously lie in European colonialism. Anyway, join in! Announce it on your blog, link to Chris' post (trackback if you can, Blogger doesn't allow it) and let's see what happens December 1st.
