Welcome to International Blog Against Racism Week!

For 2008, IBARW will take place between August 4 through August 10.

If you would like to participate, here's what to do:

  1. Announce the week in your blog.

  2. ETA: If you use a blogging system that allows post icons/pictures, switch your default icon to either an official IBARW icon, or one which you feel is appropriate. To get an official IBARW icon, you may modify one of yours yourself or ask someone to do so. Here's a round up of IBARW icons.

  3. Post about race and/or racism: in media, in life, in the news, personal experiences, writing characters of color, portrayals of race in fiction, review a book on the subject, etc. (Linking back here is highly appreciated!) The optional theme this year is intersectionality.

For inspiration, here are the previous years' IBARW posts and last year's POC in SF Carnival IBARW edition. You can also check out this post or delicioused recommended reading for further resources.

We'll be compiling links for IBARW3 as well, both in the IBARW del.icio.us account and with daily round-ups on this journal. Here's the round-up post for Monday, Aug. 4, 2008.

Please to be noting that the nifty posting of links from del.icio.us to LJ is still undergoing troubleshooting, so right now, the best way to check for new IBARW links is the del.icio.us account.

PSST: It will help a lot on del.icio.us if you title your entry something topical, as opposed to just "Intl. Blog Against Racism Week."

  • IBARW 4 conclusion

    Now that it's Monday everywhere, thanks to everyone for participating in IBARW 4! As I always note, blogging against racism should not be contained…

  • PHP help requested

    By the way, if anyone is good with PHP and has a bit of time to help me with tweaks to the autoposting script, that would be great.

  • About the daily link posts

    This year we will be autoposting links from IBARW's delicious account daily to the community, somewhere between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. EST [*], thanks…
