Testimony by ARNAB BANERJI (www.asaap.ca)

About the Project:

“Colour Me Queer” is an community-based photography project conceptualized by prominent Queer activist and Photographer Arnab Banerji with stories from queer-identified community models. Organized in partnership with ASAAP, this project recognizes the role of pride, shame, self-esteem and body politics in how we negotiate sex and interact with partners. Personal stories of pride, resilience and love from South Asian queer-identified models are depicted through narrative and photographed by Arnab.

“For years, opinion has been divided on ‘stop and frisk,’ with black and Latino residents of (New York) City saying it’s an invasion of their liberty, and white residents saying ‘Oh — I think I heard a thing about that on NPR. Is that still happening?’” JOHN OLIVER, The Daily Show (via nothingman)

 Fair or Not?: The Snow White Complex

Directed by: M. Hasna M.

"Fair or Not?: The Snow White Complex" is a documentary about Eurocentric standards of female beauty that are held across most (post-Colonial) cultures.

This is the first film I ever attempted to make back when I was an undergrad at UC Berkeley (2003-07). Unfortunately I was never able to complete this project, but it is an issue I hold very close to my heart, so I figured I should just post it online anyway so that people can watch & discuss…

Some of the topics covered: Skin color preferences in relation to class/culture, the media’s role in exacerbating internalized racism, skin bleaching products, exoticism of dark-skinned women, and the phenomenon of tanning amongst White women.

volcaniclungs asked: Hi, I would greatly appreciate your help to tell my sweet friend (who is white), that even with good intentions and "respect", that she shouldn't wear a bindi. She knows about cultural appropriation, & agrees that it is unfair for South Asian people to be discriminated against when expressing their culture, while when others of another race/religion who appropriate the items are free from the pain, hurt, shame, and racism. (going to continue this into another message)

thisisnotindia:

She reasons that we must all unite, embrace all cultures, and remove “the red tape that separates us all”. I really understand that she wants to unify everyone, and appreciate and respect all cultures - but you can do so without cultural appropriation. I don’t know how to respond to her because she does have good intentions but is also contradicting herself.

She sounds really obnoxious.

Cultural appropriation is racist. And if your friend is comfortable appropriating different cultures even after you have spoken to her about it, then …
