There is a fascinating conversation going on at Sarsaparilla in response to Laura's post on race, culture, skin colour and food advertising on Australian TV. I've had a fair bit to say there, so I won't regurgitate the points here other than to offer this exerpt from one of my comments to indicate here why this conversation is so compelling:
Whether ‘authentic’ or ‘palatable’, we wogs/gooks/ Asians/blacks/ refos/migrants etc are consumed by a whiteness that sees itself as having every right to ‘know’ - view, smell, eat, enjoy, ravish, seduce, experience, own - the rest of the world for its own pleasure and amelioration. It is this arrogance of self, this will to power, almost, that needs challenging.Go take a look. Love to hear what you think.
