Galatea's Pants #21

by Lauren Eggert-Crowe

Galatea's Pants #21 is about race and stereotyping. It covers immigration from Mexico into the US, and the myths and misinformation surrounding the issue. It's broken down point by point and an alternative view point is offered for accusations such as "immigrants should assimilate into American culture." "the Art of Defending Racism," covers the inherently racist things said in defense of someone's open-mindedness, such as, "you're too sensitive," and "I'm oppressed too." An interview with the chairwoman of a panel of displaced writers, including women from Palestine, a look at the concept of "Indian country," and Laila Halaby on Arab folklore, round out the issue.
