Identity Politics: In Black and Asian Black

leave a comment »

There are two really good articles on identity politics on The Root.

The first one is how the black intelligentsia seems to be calling Obama outfor playing his game differently than the old heads do.  William Jelani Cobb writes an excellent article on the way Cornel West and Julianne Malveaux ripped on Obama’s acceptance speech last Thursday on the Tavis Smiley show.

The second one is by writer Shiwani Srivastava discussing the argument that seems to be plaguing the Indian American community: is Bobby Jindal Indian enough?

I guess it just goes to show when the person is one of your own you hold them to a different standard than others.
