reading response 10: Race & Racism ONLINE?

As mentioned in our class discussion and in the reading "Race In/For Cyberspace: Identity Tourism and Racial Passing on the Internet", Lisa Nakamura brings up a point identifying the internet to be somewhat tangible allowing us to "surf" through sites. This idea of surfing through an idealogical thing like the internet is somewhat amusing as although we identify the internet as "not real" we apply things that are "real" to it. Another example was the idea of gender or race.
