Ya gotta read a lot if you want to write a little. Here are some of the best things I read this past week:
"The way I see it, we should be ready to give up the fictitious veneer of privilege to acknowledge that racism has hurt all of us. Others prefer not to speak up, or lack the language to discuss how they have experienced racism. We are neither black nor white; there is no blueprint to discuss the nuances of our own experiences."
"Why Mindy Kaling Refuses to Talk about Race--and Why I Care So Much"
from Talking Points Memo (@TPM)
"Reasons you were not promoted that are entirely unrelated to gender"
from McSweeney's (@mcsweeneys)
If you're as much of a fan of fonts and typefaces as I am, "27 fonts* (give or take) that explain your world" does not disappoint. Don't miss the subtle shade in #8.
