Courtney Meaker

Hey Paul! Thanks for re-posting Bob's comments. He's one of my favorite people. Could you link to my website instead of my FB page? Courtneymeaker.com. Thanks!

Also, to draw attention to how prevalent this thinking is, here are two reviews from a local woman: http://www.dramainthehood.net/2014/09/break-noon/

In one she describes a person as having a "mild African American accent" whatever that means. In another another she says, "Sermona Mitchell, a handsome rather than pretty African American," which is also a WTF?!

The sensibility of "White is default and everything else is other" needs some serious examination. And I think step one is to call it out out whenever it's seen, especially in "liberal, not racist" Seattle.


Thanks, Courtney. That link change has been made.
