In Support of Affirmative Action

par Randall Kennedy, publié le 06/02/2014

article.png There are several good justifications for racial affirmative action in a society that has long been a pigmentocracy in which white people have been privileged and people of color oppressed. Affirmative action can ameliorate debilitating scars left by past racial mistreatment – scars (such as educational deprivation) that handicap racial minorities as they seek to compete with whites who have been free of racial subordination. Affirmative action can also counter racially prejudiced misconduct. True, an array of laws supposedly protect people in America from racial mistreatment. But these laws are notoriously under-enforced...

The Black Panther Party's fight against medical discrimination

par Alondra Nelson, Claire Richard, publié le 09/01/2012

type-video.png Claire Richard asks Alondra Nelson about a neglected and yet essential legacy of the Black Panther Party. When the party emerged in 1966, the Jim Crow laws had been dismantled and there was no legal support for discrimination in the United States, but there were still segregated practices within the healthcare sector. As the saying goes, when America has a cold, African Americans have pneumonia. The Black Panthers fought for healthcare equality as a way to achieve social justice. Alondra Nelson tells us about the clinics they created where they did basic healthcare but also screening and vaccination programs. They were asking for a universal healthcare system which the USA still don't have today...

Breaking Bounds in Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things

par Catherine Pesso-Miquel, publié le 13/05/2011

article.png This article on Arundhati Roy's novel focuses more particularly on the idea of dividing lines, turned into parodied, ridiculous devices, and on their transgression. Analysing in particular the love scenes between the two lovers and the incest scene between the two twins, it attempts to define the differences rather than the similarities between such scenes, asking the question: is transgression necessarily linked with progression? The article will show that Roy, like other Indo-Anglian novelists such as Salman Rushdie, goes to war with the sacrosanct notion of purity, celebrating instead mixing, hybridizing, and the blurring of boundaries.

Sectarisme religieux et football en Ecosse

par Fabien Jeannier , publié le 26/03/2009

article.png L'installation dans les régions industrielles d'Ecosse de larges communautés d'Irlandais a souvent généré des tensions importantes entre communautés catholique et protestante. A Glasgow, les confrontations entre les deux plus grands clubs de football de la ville, le Celtic F.C. et le Rangers F.C., sont très rapidement devenues un terrain d'expression privilégié et violent de ces tensions communautaires. Malgré la sécularisation de la société et des mesures institutionnelles, cela reste aujourd'hui un sujet de préoccupation de la population et des dirigeants.
