Excellent post. I like how you illustrate that discrimination can be so subtle that even the person discriminating isn't really consciously aware.

I first heard about this case in the NY Times a few days ago, and started a campaign to boycott Goodyear Tire Co starting on Mother's Day if we get 10,000+ supporters. (That information is on my blog if you're interested in joining or helping spread the word.)

I think we just have to keep talking about it, keep letting company's know that we're gonna talk about it, and when they're paying tons to try to rank in the search engines, and then having to spend even more competing with bad press about them in the search engines, maybe then they'll get it.

Here's to the power of Social Media! Cheers!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
