So close to the action! (at United States Capitol Building)
We’ve got a good one today. The images above are actual screenshots from an app on Google Play, called “Make Me Indian” and “Make Me Asian” respectively. As you can probably tell, the model in the screenshots is the same person.
The developer of this app, “KimberyDeiss” has a number of other problematic apps, like “Make Me Fat” and “Make Me Old.” We’re trying to put the heat on by asking Google Play to take down these blatantly racist apps that perpetuate the worst of the classic stereotypes of Native Americans and Asians. Will you join us in signing the petition and reblogging this?
Take a moment to sign the petition & report this racist app to Google. This BS can’t fly.

12/16/2011 foursquare’s First Annual Talent Show was amazing!
My prediction for next year’s talent show: at least 10 acts and double the members in #fourschoir!

Hugely proud of my team who edited this video of clips from foursquare users around the world (and filmed Naveen to bookend the clips). Thanks Alexis, Claire (action!), Mallory, Bianca, et al. Watch, share, rewatch: bit.ly/4sqVid
