Kiri Davis

I had been searching for Kiri Davis’ video A Girl Like Me, and now I have found it. This classic text demonstrates, among other things, why the claim to “colorblindness” is a pure and absurd luxury.

  1. OMG you are of course right and even I knew it – but I would love to hear more (I really have not been watching or analyzing) – why did we finally get this $, have we already benefited from changes in what we take in from the offshore leases, or is it just the price?

    I am going to ask around about this this very day.

  2. Why would anyone want to be colorblind? There are so many beautiful colors and shades. It’s the heart and mind that needs change. Peace to you professorz!

  3. Have you read Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eyes?” When you have time I am sure the library will have it and it is written so smoothly that it is one of those books that are easy to read (fast) but stays on your mind. Every time I see this video I think of that book.

  4. I haven’t read Bluest Eye in about 20 years and should revisit! And yes, this is the other point – *why* be ‘colorblind’ … I like this version of my name, btw, professorz … ! 🙂
