Drop It Like It’s Hot

We had some really great conversations this week. Each week as we engage with one another it makes me really happy to see the community that has grown up around this blog.  We cannot always agree but as long as we are talking there is hope.

I wanted to remind everyone that the deadline for submitting to the WOC and ally blog carnival is on the 10th.  The carnival will be posted on February 15th.  I would also like to say thank you to all of this weeks guest posters.  I appreciate your unique perspective.  I realize that when I examine an issue I can only see it from a certain vantage point which often leaves glaring omissions as I exist with many privileges .  Please continue to send in your guests posts via e-mail.  It does not have to be an original post a cross post would be great.  The more voices we have breaking down the issues from different perspectives the more that we can grow together.

As usual I have a list of some interesting posts that I came across this week.  Please check them out and when you are done, don’t forget to leave your link in the comment section.  Okay drop it like its hot y’all.
