So…. Remember the Yong Author Challenge we did last year? The one where every person who sent in a story got feedback from a published author and the winners got their story published in an anthology (and paid for the story)?
This one. It’s pretty fantastic. If you…

Extended trailer for the documentary Negrita.
From the film’s Official WordPress:
NEGRITA, written and directed by Magdalena Albizu, is a documentary about the Afro-Latina identity and experience in the United States.
Black Latinos/as are often overlooked or dichotomized as either “black” or “hispanic” in the United States. However, according to the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) , Hispanic or Latino origin can be viewed as the heritage, nationality group, lineage, or country of birth of the person or the person’s parents or ancestors before their arrival in the United States. Hispanic or Latino origin is independent of race and is termed “ethnicity” by the United States Census Bureau.
NEGRITA highlights individual unique Afro-Latina experiences within a broad range of skin color and ethnicity across the United States, while revealing psychological and social factors that add to the confusion, uncertainty, shame and affirmation about one’s self-image of being both “Black”and “Latina”.
NEGRITA aims to establish a ‘black’ consciousness across all generations by reigniting a movement to embrace Latinos’ African roots through a trans-national dialogue on race, identity, ethnicity, nationality and community-building.
Negrita is currently set to be completed September, 2014.

I know many people are confused and irritated about all of the stuff on Tumblr today regarding “internet slowlanes” and net neutrality. What is it? Why do I have to look at that spinning circle of death?
Above is probably the best breakdown of the issue I’ve seen.
Take a second and watch. Take another second and contact your representatives. This shit is very real and very scary.
Knowledge is power.
The internet is power.
Don’t let them take your power away.
