Magic Johnson has turned Donald Sterling’s attack into a teachable moment, telling Anderson Cooper: “The stigma is still there. ... It’s a shame that Donald used this platform with you, instead of using this platform to come out and apologize to the world, which would have been great.” In a New York Times op-ed, Charles Blow called Sterling’s comment, ‘Is he (Johnson) an example for children?’ particularly revolting. “In attempting to AIDS-shame Johnson,” Blow writes, “Sterling further shamed himself – if that’s even possible – and proved supremely disrespectful of and destructive to people living with HIV and those (like Johnson, who responded magnanimously) who are working to reach the affected and protect those at risk. In this it is clear that Johnson is a far better example for our children than Sterling.” New Yorker writer Michael Specter noted the effectiveness of Johnson’s 1991 disclosure he was HIV-positive: “Within a month of Magic Johnson’s announcement, the number of people seeking HIV tests in New York City rose by 60 per cent.” – Photos: Francine Orr, LA Times, and Mark J.

No radiation threat, say media, as reporters pulled out of Japan

March 20, 2011

The media are doing damage control to help keep people from flooding out of Japan and further destabilizing the Japanese economy. Given the evidence, the history of disasters and epidemics of disease, reporting on Japan’s absence of a radiation threat is criminal.

Kouraj cherie: Dispatches from Port au Prince, Haiti

January 28, 2010

Reports of violence in Haiti are largely disinformation. For centuries Haiti has been portrayed as a dangerous country filled with volatile and threatening people, unsafe for foreigners. This supposition, this fear and misunderstanding, has very deep implications for foreign aid and cross-cultural understanding.
