Very enlightening post. Thank you for speaking out on this topic. I come from a very crafty family, but growing up I lived in a very ethnically diverse environment. I commented on KP founder's response w/ my racial background and analysis of racisim: http://onegrandhome.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/founder-of-knitta-please-speaks-on/ It hasn't been until recently, where I know work and live in a community of a singular race who is typically an American Minority and unfortunately extremely prejudice that this topic has really irked me. I honestly don't think I knew what "Race" was until I was in middle school and living in a predominantly "white" area being the only "tan" student in the entire school. I think what irritates my the most is that KP founder claims to be in touch w/ racism b/c of her heritage but never once discussed her racial background until now. Rather she used terms stereotypically associated with every other racial group. Yes KP mission is to beautify urban neighborhood w/ a "new kind" of graffiti but that is no excuse for being ignorant or blatantly racist.
