Some artwork from Amanda Marcotte’s book “It’s A Jungle Out There”, published by Seal Press, is now online at Dear White Feminists. I wrote about Seal Press a short while ago, here, and y’all know about the current AM/appropriation conversation going on everywhere in the femiblogosophere and RWOCosphere.
This is blatantly, indefensibly racist. This is vile.
Text description here at Feministe, comment 84.
To their credit, people like Jill and Hugo who initially defended Marcotte are now re-thinking their promotions of the book.
Edit: Holly has a good analysis at Feministe.
Further edit 26 Apr 2008, early am: Seal Press just announced “Krista and I are in the process of working on a statement about this today for those of you coming this way in the wake of the Feministe post. Stay tuned.”
