RACE AND RACISM
The following links are meant as more of a starting point; I keep rereading them, attempt to balance out section and then realize that I'm missing so many areas. The biases tend toward American black and Asian issues, feminism and fandom, as that is apparently what I have delicioused in the past. That, by the way, is not an excuse, but a note that any gaping holes are my own fault.

FANDOM AND RACE
Currently "fandom" refers to SF/F fandom and media fandom, largely because those are the two groups I have visibility into. But if anyone has any other links, please let me know and I will add them!
- Great Race Discussion Linkspam - rydra_wong has an amazing link compilation to pretty much all the race debates going on in fandom for the last few years. The bottom includes several general, non-fandom race resources as well. I think Rydra's got links to the recent HP debate over "miscegenation," the debates about Martha in Dr. Who, the debates about COC in fic in Stargate Atlantis, and the Great Cultural Appriation Debate of DOOM, among many others.
