  • Donald Trump Is the First White President, excerpt from Ta-Nehisi Coates' latest book, We Were Eight Years In Power - argues that race trumped everything for his supporters/voters. Whenever I read critiques of Coates, there's always people arguing that he never has solutions. Like, since when does a writer have to be prescriptive? He's a writer describing a problem that few people want to acknowledge, or at least the people who should be confronting it head-on, are too cowardly to. It's not his job to solve racism and white supremacy.
  • What the Rich Won't Tell You, NYT article by Rachel Sherman. Striking how the privileged, whether it's via class/race and/or both, live in denial in order to cope with the large inequalities in their daily lives. That denialism is going to kill all of us.
  • The Drone King, newly discovered short story by Kurt Vonnegut
