Deconstructing The Ideology Of White Aesthetics, John M. Kang

Michigan Journal of Race and Law

In this Article, the author provides a discussion on the dynamic between race and aesthetics. The author states that because Whites are the dominant group in America, they dictate what is beautiful. The consequence of this power dynamic is that the dominant group, Whites, can exercise preferences in deciding how to look or express themselves, whereas people of color are limited to either conforming to an imposed White standard or rejecting it.

Proposition 209, Girardeau A. Spann Jan 1997

Proposition 209, Girardeau A. Spann

Eliminate the affront to social convention, and a proposition promises about as much excitement as a routine liaison with one's spouse ...

This post-cold war and serves to emphasize the need for the OAU ...
