Does Whitening Happen? Distinguishing Between Race And Color Labels In An African-Descended Community In Peru, Tanya Golash-Boza
This article explores how race and color labels are used to describe people in an Afro-Peruvian community. This article is based on analyses of 88 interviews and 18 months of fieldwork in an African-descended community in Peru. The analyses of these data reveal that, if we consider race and color to be conceptually distinct, there is no “mulatto escape hatch,” no social or cultural whitening, and no continuum of racial categories in the black Peruvian community under study. This article considers the implications of drawing a conceptual distinction between race and color for research on racial classifications in Latin America ...

León De Greiff: Cultura Y Política En Colombia (1895-1976), Alexander Montoya Prada
Alexander Montoya Prada
En este artículo hacemos un análisis de la vida pública del poeta León de Greiff en el contexto de la historia colombiana del siglo XX. Nos interesa la relación entre cultura y política, vista desde la trayectoria de vida del poeta, con énfasis en los personajes públicos que lo rodearon y el vínculo que estableció con ellos. Pensamos a León de Greiff frente al medio que lo produce como autor, evitando exaltar su genialidad y su aura extraña para el entorno colombiano como ya se ha hecho en múltiples textos, prefiriendo un análisis que privilegie su inclusión dentro de los ...
You Can’T Be Nonviolent Without Violence: The Rainbow Family’S Nonkilling Nomadic Utopia And Its Survival Of Persistent State Violence, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.
Michael I Niman Ph.D.
Since 1972, the Rainbow Family of Living Light, a nonhierarchical nomadic community, has been holding large temporary gatherings in remote forests around the world to pray for world peace and to create a model of a functioning utopian society. Wherever and whenever they gather, the temporary Rainbow city remains essentially unchanged, modeling what anarchist theorist Hakim Bey calls the Temporary Autonomous Zone (TAZ). Revolutions, Bey writes, seek permanent change and, in doing so, lead to violence and martyrdom. Revolutionaries aim to hold territory. The TAZ, by contrast, does not directly engage the state, but instead “liberates an area (of land ...
Is “Race-Neutral” Really Race- Neutral?: Adverse Impact Towards Underrepresented Minorities In The Uc System., Jose Luis Santos, Nolan L. Cabrera, Kevin J. Fosnacht
Nolan L. Cabrera
Authors examine the proportion of undergraduate applications, admissions, and enrollments preceding, during, and after Proposition 209 while accounting for the relative growth in University of California eligibility for underrepresented minorities (URMs). They employed standard deviation analyses to measure dispersion of the URMs to non-URMs. Results suggest that "disparate impact" towards URMs persists, the magnitude is large, and affirmative action alone is insufficient to ensure an equitable admissions process.

The Political Tsunami: Not All Death And Destruction Is Natural, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.
Michael I Niman Ph.D.
Unlike many disasters that befall the Third and Fourth Worlds, the 2004 Tsunami was both large and unique enough to dominate the western press. The stories in the mainstream media, however, were rather simplistic, sticking to a feel good script of nations uniting to offer aid to the tidal wave’s unfortunate victims. Meanwhile, without much media attention, the Indonesian government used the cover of the Tsunami and the ensuing relief efforts, to intensify its war against rebels in its break-away Ache province – which suffered from the brunt of the Tsunami. Also ignored by the western mass media, was the ...
Popularizing Achievement: The Role Of An Hbcu In Supporting Academic Success For Underprepared Black Males, 2009 University of Maryland - College Park
Popularizing Achievement: The Role Of An Hbcu In Supporting Academic Success For Underprepared Black Males, Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Ryan J. Davis, Dina C. Maramba, Phd
Robert T. Palmer, PhD
Both predominantly White institutions (PWIs) and historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) are experiencing low academic persistence rates among Black males. While researchers have focused on factors facilitating the retention and persistence for Black males at PWIs, a paucity of contemporary research has focused on the academic and social experiences of Black males at HBCUs. We used in-depth interview methods to investigate the academic and social experiences of 11 Black males, who entered a public HBCU through its remedial or developmental studies program and persisted to graduation. Although several themes emerged from this study, special attention was placed on the ...
Another Strategy Toward Retention: Using Counseling Techniques To Help Black Faculty Succeed In The Academy, Robert T. Palmer, Phd, Sharon L. Holmes,Phd
Robert T. Palmer, PhD
Retaining African American faculty at predominantly white institutions (PWIs) remains an issue of focus and concern. While researchers have investigated the institutional climate, mentorship, and social capital and their relationship with fostering a supportive campus environment for African American faculty, a dearth of research has used the counseling literature to discuss coping strategies that African American faculty can use to enhance their experiences and increase their success. The purpose of this essay is to focus on the relationship between cognitive interpretation and emotional and behavioral outcomes through rationale emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), the positive self-talk of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT ...
