Ersatz Chats: The sight bits & sound “bites” of social networking

We spend so much time imitating communication; social networking sites do promote contact...sometimes as the end itself. But do they really promote connection, community, communion with another person? Is social networking a conversation without context? Was that great 20th century philosopher James Brown (a.k.a. The Godfather) presciently, prophetically on point...that we are a culture "talking loud and saying nothing"? Join Cecil Prescod and myself, Celeste Carey as we muse over the demise of face-to-face social interaction and blame social networking sites .

A "Juneteenth" rememberance: confronting racism in Oregon

June 19th marks the 144th anniversary of the landing of federal troops in Galveston, Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation and finally bring slavery to an end throughout the United States. "Juneteenth" has not only become a day to commemorate the end of slavery but to reflect on the African American experience - from progress made to challenges that remain. As Oregonians celebrate the 150th anniversary of their statehood, Juneteenth is an opportunity to look at how we are contributing - or not - to overcoming racism in Oregon.
