Over the past year I’ve become somewhat of a web series junkie. Being that I live in South Korea, English-language television pickings are slim, and one has to get sort of creative if she wants to see people like herself on the small screen.
The words ‘Harriet Tubman Sex Tape’ first stank up my Twitter feed in the middle of an otherwise calm afternoon, and I really couldn’t believe my eyes. I clicked on a tweet about it and the still images alone turned my stomach.
The trouble is, when white folks hear "racism," we tend to take it really personally, as an accusation, or as a challenge. But it's less about us, individually, than it is about the culture in which we participate, and which collectively we have some power to change.
