Listen, if you really have to be reminded that blackface is both culturally insensitive and just plain tacky, well, you’ve got problems. But just in case, students at Ohio University created a special campaign, helpfully reminding that blackface — even on Halloween — is in REALLY BAD TASTE. The kids from Students Teaching Against Racism (STARS) developed the “It’s a Culture, Not a Costume” series which features real pictures from a totally offensive Clemson University “gansta” party. But let’s hope you — and your friends — don’t really need the reminder. [Good Magazine]

One in five women has never had a mentor in her career, according to new data released by the LinkedIn Blog. Eighty-two percent said that nearly 1,000 women surveyed said they realize that having a mentor could be important for her career.

A Florida man was strolling on the beach this morning when a giant Lego man washed ashore. So yeah, that happened. The 8-foot-tall toy, who goes by the name Ego Leonard, has been doing a lot of traveling lately as he’s washed up on beaches in Holland and England as well. The  message on his shirt says “No real than you are.” According to Ego’s website (yes, he has a website), he “comes from the virtual world,” which represents “happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.” Clearly, he has lessons to teach us, but it appears that English is his second language. Perhaps he should take grammar lessons from Courtney Stodden. [Boing Boing]
