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!
How conservative media transformed the Covington Catholic students from pariahs to heroes, on the Guardian—“Conservatives have realized they can construct a parallel reality and have it accepted.”
Scooters and the homeless — some parallels to think about, on My San Antonio—“Sure, many of us fear the homeless (usually for wrong reasons) more than a fallen scooter. I get that and would love to talk about that more. But my point is about fairness, compassion, and being a good neighbor.”
President Trump Posts Altered Photos to Facebook and Instagram That Make Him Look Thinner, on Gizmodo—“He’s also gotten a haircut—well, a digital one anyway—and in one of the strangest alterations, Trump’s fingers have been made slightly longer. Seriously.”White people assume niceness is the answer to racial inequality. It’s not, on The Guardian—“While most of us see ourselves as ‘not racist’, we continue to reproduce racist outcomes and live segregated lives.”
