Friday Links: Star Trek, Socialism, and Unions

  • What Star Trek teaches us about socialism. [Yglesias]
  • I bet you'd be really shocked to learn that Gov. Scott Walker is also anti-contraception. [RH Reality Check]
  • Latoya Peterson wants to stop being feminism's Ms. Nigga. I don't blame her. I'm also really glad she agreed to speak on the panel I helped organize. [Racialicious]
  • Fetal pain laws are bad. Like, really, really bad. [The American Prospect]
  • Shirley Sherrod has some thoughts on the modern era of racism. And they're as interesting as you'd think they are. [The American Prospect]
  • This was kind of a neat little corporate video celebrating International Women's Day. [YouTube]
  • Remember those "Choose Life" license plates proceeds that weren't actually going to support pregnant women? Yeah, now they just want to blatantly fund the anti-choice movement. Points for honesty? [The American Independent]
  • Turns out attacking unions is also bad for the black middle class (and everyone else). [The Root]
  • I'm sorry, this Kate Middleton doll is creepy. [The Frisky]
  • So excited that Clarissa Explains It All is going to be back on the air! [Entertainment Weekly]
  • Hey, so maybe when we write about rape, can we not include the pornographic descriptions? [Columbia Journalism Review (PDF)]
