BayAreaChick came up with a wonderful idea to start a Kinja Subblog for People of Color.
The title of the blog is tentatively called "The Salad Bowl" (playing off the anti-assimilationist "Salad Bowl" idea). It is a place ran by People of Color, with only PoC authors. While essays from allies will be shared on the blog (allies are welcome to read and comment, of course!), it is important to have our place to discuss, vent, promote, and exert activism without intrusion. The Salad Bowl's goal is to be that place for PoC to feel comfortable discussing their experiences.
The blog should be up and running by the end of this week. We are looking for PoC authors and moderators to join the blog. In addition, we may need a logo and banner for the blog. Please comment on this post if you are interested in becoming an author or mod, designing a banner, or if you have any other questions or comments.
This is an amazing idea by Bayareachick, and I hope that there are a lot of People of Color to participate.
