Saturday Link Love is a new 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.
White America Is Quietly Self-Segregating, on Vox—“When it comes time for the housing search, black and Latino residents look in neighborhoods that are as diverse as they say they want. White residents “give a socially acceptable answer in the abstract,” Krysan said, but they end up searching and living in much less diverse areas.”
This Retro Toy Catalog Will Make You Wish It Was 1982, on Shared—“We can’t bring back all those treasures from your childhood, but we have the next best thing: a guided tour through the toy section from JCPenney’s 1982 Christmas catalog.”
Why Aren’t We Rude to Grown-ups the Way We Are Rude to Kids?, on Good Men Project—“I, however, don’t get spoken to the way kids do. People just…don’t shout at me. I honestly don’t remember the last time anyone spoke to me the way I heard literally dozens of kids being spoken to throughout the day in a variety of settings yesterday.”In US, More Adults Identifying as LGBT, on Gallup—“Millennials, defined here as those born between 1980 and 1998, drive virtually all of the increases observed in overall LGBT self-identification.”
Read the letter the FBI sent MLK to try to convince him to kill himself, on Vox—“Fortunately, King didn’t back down. But the letter is a terrifying reminder of what government surveillance agencies can be capable of.”
