December 1st will be Blog Against Racism Day

Chris Clarke, who writes a gorgeous blog full of depth, complexity, beautiful writing, and plenty of damn funny stuff (oh, and snark, too), has decided to declare December 1st Blog Against Racism Day. Read his post for his reasons why and his thoughtful discussion of the ways the word "racism" has started to be denuded of any real meaning even as racism itself is virulently present in our world.

I don't know what I'll write, but I'm going to participate somehow. If you have a blog, announce this date and activity there and then participate yourself on Dec. 1. If you don't, go to Chris's blog on Dec. 1 and follow the links to all the blogs participating.
