This video has been all over the interwebs already (I latest saw it linked from this post on Ultra Violet). I finally got around to watch it tonight and it is a powerful speech.

For any LJ friends still around... I've set up a dreamwidth account and will be posting from there from now. They'll automatically x-post to LJ for now and you can still comment on LJ as well - may change this later, but as not many people comment anyway, I don't want to make it harder for people ;)

Ok, that's all i wanted to say for now. But there will be more soon..........

I'm working on something longer in response to this racist crap but I don't have the brain energy to finish it right now... But if you haven't heard about it yet, short version is Peter Tatchell has responded to an article in which his imperialist queer politics are critiqued with a racist, defensive and undermining attack on the authors, which has basically forced the book which the chapter appears in out of print. Grassroots Feminism has a roundup of links which is a good place to start.

The chapter is "Gay Imperialism: Gender and Sexuality Discourse in the 'War on Terror", by Jin Haritaworn, Tamsila Tauqir and Esra Erdem, and it's in the book Out of Place: Interrogating Silences in Queerness/Raciality (ed. Adi Kuntsman & Esperanza Miyake, 1998).
