There is a new post up on Bitch about how Lindy West did a typical "ah look a social justice topic that lots of POC have already written about, I will write about it too and it will blow up the internet".http://bitchmagazine.org/post/gawker-jezebel-gawker-hipster-racism
But returning to the OP... the Hipster Racism post is fairly well written, even though it is a mashup/rehash of stuff that has been on Racialicious and other sites where POC and especially WOC have been blogging for a long time. I suppose it is good that it will reach a new (?) audience although it is ironic to me that it's on Jezebel because I kinda thought, and correct me if I'm wrong, that Jezebel was originally a blogging site started to kind of debunk or play up the ridiculous media attitudes to black women? I am SURE someone said that to me and it was someone who knew what they were talking about.. it might even have been here... anyway if that is true, then I guess Jezebel has come full circle in a pretty awkwardly white washing and fucked up kyriarchy kind of way, since its editor is now Jessica Coen who thinks ableism (as in the word) is lame.
