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.
The Rachel Dolezal Documentary Is a Hollow, Manipulative Spectacle, on Broadly—“The film does such an effective job honoring Dolezal’s story that many Black viewers may feel sympathy for her; I did.”
It Takes 6 Months to Turn a Standard Racist into a Nazi, on Skepchick—“Even more interestingly, in my opinion, is that the new members [of the forum] eventually stopped using ‘I’ so often, replacing it with ‘we.'”
What does the life of a mother mean to you Governor Bryant? on Dr. Jen Gunter—“The only thing I know for sure is this will not be the last attempt to reduce abortion access using medical terminology that is impossible for doctors to navigate.”
Boozy Milkshakes and Sordid Spirits, on Sordid Spirits—“When sociologists talk about concepts like ‘cultural appropriation,’ we often jump to clear examples with a direct connection to inequality and oppression.”
