How To Be Black, By Baratunde

by Latoya Peterson

I’m extremely late in getting around to summarizing my experiences at South by Southwest Interactive 2010, but one of my favorite presentations was this panel by friend of the blog Baratunde. “How to Be Black” isn’t a discussion of identity and performance, but rather a discussion of how people utilize the internet, and how there are trends by race and class in terms of use. And, considering it is Baratunde, it’s typically hilarious. I’ve also got some really rough notes in the Cover it Live box below, for those who can’t hear/play the video – but I believe we were drinking and laughing to hard to get anything coherent.
