Where The Sisters Are

posted by on May 21 at 11:51 AM

From a comment to my last post, which concerned the ads that are ruining Myspace:

Great. I hate shit like this, basically it is saying that WHITE women are as downtrodden as black MEN. Where do we Black women come in?
Well, according to the ads, this is where they come in:


But the woman in the image can’t be all that dumb. Judging from the posters behind her couch, she likes modern jazz.

Or maybe she buys the posters to make it look like she does?

Besides the gross sexism on True, I'm bothered by their "no felons" policy. Total bullshit. First, the person could have had a felony a long time ago for something like drugs and now they are clean, or maybe they stole a car when they were 18, whatever. The policy perpetuates the idea that felons are the "other."

Charles, what about a little credit? That was my comment afterall.

If by "modern" you mean "sixty years old", yeah. That poster is Dizzy Gillespie at the Royal Roost in 1948. A great moment to be sure, but modern?

OMG Charles! She likes horseback riding! Call her!

At least she isn't looking into the camera.

Um, Fnarf, Dizzy would definitely be considered modern jazz. Modern is one of those era terms like art deco or surrealist or dada, etc. If you are referring to simply current jazz, you would say contemporary.

I just explained that really terribly, but I think you'll get it.
