Saturday Link Love: Aziz Ansari, Prison Bills, and a Right-Wing Firestorm

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.

Not That Bad, on KatyKatiKate—“The line in the sand is hard to see here. This is the one that is forcing me into a place where I’d rather not go. This is scary to write and publish.”

The Check is in The Mail (For Real), the Marshall Project—“This week, the Contra Costa County probation department will begin notifying and mailing checks to families who, since 2010, were wrongfully billed for their children’s incarceration.”

What It Feels Like to Be at the Center of a Right-Wing Media Firestorm, on Splinter—“Laurie Rubel typically publishes her research on mathematics education in relatively obscure journals. The Brooklyn College professor’s most recent paper explored the challenges white teachers face while trying to connect with students in large urban school districts. It also contained all the right buzzwords to be swept up in the right-wing media’s ever-escalating culture war.”
