AN ANTI-RACIST PERSPECTIVE: A SEMIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF MEDIUM--A STUDY OF THE SUBTLE LIMITS OF THE “SUNDAY NIGHT SEX SHOW”
This paper is a semiological-ideological analysis of the normalization of race on modern television. In simpler terms, it is a study of how meaning is constructed on television based on the dominant ideologies evident on the medium of television, particularly from an anti-racist perspective. More contextually, it is a short study of the unobtrusive, non-coercive, and seemingly neutral power dynamic in the Sunday Night Sex Show.
Much has been written...about how the horror of 9/11 enabled George Bush's administration to extend its international and domestic campaigns of repression. Much less has been written...about how these and other events have altered Canadian foreign policy, bringing it more closely in line with that of the U.S.
I should like to trace the paradoxical discourse not only of the western doctrines, but also of Middle-Eastern contexts, to show the contrary relations between dominant readings/interpretations and the volition and power which resistance and refusal can garner for its benefit. I will shortly speak about the Shari-ah. The Shari’ah is the body of Islamic law that was developed by religious scholars (Ulama’s) after the death of the Prophet Muhammad.

Thanks to a highly sophisticated, multi-pronged corporate effort, the labour movement is in crisis. How bad is the situation? Really bad. In the U.S. today, the portion of the working population that is represented by unions is at its lowest level since the 1920s. Meanwhile, corporations are rampaging unchecked.
The pogram against independent journalists...continues full throttle. The murder of Indymedia correspondent Brad Will this past October 27th on the barricades in Oaxaca...segues into the denial of the courts to release 23 year-old Josh Wolf from prison during the life of the present grand jury. Wolf is charged with refusing to turn over video clips of an anarchist anti-capitalist march...during which San Francisco's Finest beat the living shit out of protestors...
MaxSpeak Summary: the Puritan Christian fundamentalists, of whom the
Pilgrims were a subgroup, were murderous, treacherous swine who made a
treaty with the indigenous people around Plymouth until they had enough
forces to wipe them out. This they later did with smallpox and guns, unless
they were able to sell them into slavery, all of course for the greater
glory of Jesus Christ.
Wait a minute. That wasn't quite right. Let's try it again.
...(R)acism has deep roots in Anglo Australia...The arrival in Australia of Muslim immigrants from the Middle East resulted in racial confrontations with the Anglo settlers, promoting discrimination against Muslims.

...I can't help but notice how the bulk of communications we receive on Oaxaca relate messages from male leadership, or individually name male martyrs, focusing on males' actions. But many unnamed women have suffered physical violence in this struggle, too...Now the conflict is increasingly masculinized. Women as agents and leaders are being cut out of the drama -- what is going on with them?

The controversy in this paper is that the number #1 consumed beverage in the world -- namely Tea -- is wrought with the most conflicting human rights issues. The central thesis in this paper implies that the power of cheap female labor (already classed, raced, gendered) serves as a differential equation for super-profit schemes, serving the major obsession of the Plantocracy of the tea estates around the world. This contrasts sharply from the elitist Western Tea shops charging 7$ for a pot of tea whilst the daily wage of a tea picker is merely a fraction of that!
