"The “mommy wars” in lower-income brackets are about survival, not about competing with each other for praise or status. Fighting with school systems that lack supplies, that are overcrowded and understaffed, to get quality education for children is a battle that grows more serious by the day. Millions are struggling to retain access to healthcare, or fighting to afford food — whether it be via SNAP benefits or a living minimum wage. Some are denied the right to have children, to keep the children they have, and to choose when to have children."
From The real mommy wars on Salon.com, an incendiary commentary on feminism and class by one of our Council of Feminist Thought members, Mikki Kendall. (via morningamp)

Vocalo On WBEZ Ep 82 - White Student Union, Willis Earl Beal, DJ Bizzon

In this episode: A Georgia State University freshman’s attempt to start a White Student Union has some people up in arms due to his affiliation with White supremacist internet forum, Stormfront. While founder Patrick Sharp claims he is only fostering pride for a shared European heritage, there remains questions about ulterior motives. Dr. Coya Paz joined Morning AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss the nuances of white student unions as opposed to minority student unions, whether white student unions are too exclusionary, and they ask the age old question, is it racist or not racist?

Also, An eclectic and enigmatic artist - Willis Earl Beal first generated a buzz with his stripped down, lo-fi bed room recordings that would make up his debut, Acousmatic Sorcery. He’s also the guy who posted hand drawn flyers around the city inviting Chicagoans to call him for a song. He spoke with Jesse Menendez on The MusicVox about the new album “Nobody Knows,” his reclusive nature, his shift in sound and much much more.

We close the show with a set from the newest Vocalo DJ collective member DJ Bizzon.
