Link roundup

I think I'll keep this post linked to in the profile after it gets a little larger; I'd love to have some sort of index for Heroes posts on race and gender.

ETA: episode-specific race and gender discussions will be linked to from the episode-specific census (tag) posts.

Also, in honor of Bob:
- Interview with Jimmy Jean-Louis (plays Bob the Haitian)

Race:



Gender:


General race and gender links:


This is just gathered off my flist and metafandom; if you have a post or have seen a post, please comment, and I'll add it! Also, what do people think about having a race-in-fandom section? I know there are a lot of good essays floating around, but if someone else has already collected them, I would much rather just have a single link because I am lazy like that.

Interesting, so "The Haitian" was originally "The New Zealander."

Hee, yes! I wonder if they would have kept referring to him as (dun-dun-DUN!) the New Zealander all the time.

I'm not sure that this post of rydra_wong's fits the bill, but I think it looks like a pretty comprhensive set of links.

When Fangirls Attack! often has Heroes/gender posts, although I cannot find a way to search the entire archives.

I don't know if this is worth including, but I talked a bit about race, class and gender in Heroes, back around episode 7 or so.
