worth some words

As much as I hesitate to call this a blog (which to me implies some sort of consistency along the line) and while I'm not entirely certain I have anything fresh to say on the matter, I like the idea Chris Clarke promulgates in Creek Running North of (in addition to being World Aids Day) making December 1, 2005 Blog Against Racism Day.

What he says:
[...]Which is all a very long-winded way of declaring December 1, 2005 - the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks' heroic act of civil disobedience on that Montgomery bus - "Blog Against Racism" day, in which people post something on the very broad and complex subject of racism. You don't need to have a political blog to participate. Race, after all, affects almost every aspect of life in one way or another. Your post might be literary in nature, or historical, or concern current issues in need of political attention. You might take the opportunity to debunk scientific racism, or write poetry or essays about personal experiences, uplifting or depressing.

With luck, the discussion engendered will endure past midnight on December 2.

To participate, announce the date in your blog sometime soon to encourage others to take part. And then on December 1, 2005, Blog Against Racism!
