Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, once again I would like to say thank you for another great week of conversation.   I learned quite a bit from the comments that were made on the blog this week and I appreciate all of the input.  Once again I would like to remind everyone that though we cannot always agree, it is of great importance that comments remain respectful in order to ensure that this remains a safe space for everyone.  I would also like to take the time to remind everyone that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  I cannot possibly hope to cover everything and in all honesty I don’t have the experience or the knowledge to discuss certain subjects.  If you are interested in participating please send me either your original post or a link to your work via e-mail.

This week the Womanist Musing podcast returns with Mr. Larry Hales of F.I.S.T.  We will be discussing the role that colonialism and neo-liberal policies played in the Haitian disaster.  The show will air live at 8pm EST.  You can listen to it here and the call in number is (347) 326-9452.

Below you will find links to a few interesting posts that I ran across this week.  Please read the comment section at your own risk, as I did not read them myself.  Please don’t be shy about showing these bloggers some love and when you are done, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
