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!
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.”
The Case Against Lawns, on Curbed—“For all the talk in the suburbs around being closer to nature, the nature in question is both ersatz and an ecological horrorshow.”
Georgia’s Total Abortion Ban Would Give Rights to a Fertilized Egg, on Rewire—“GOP legislation that would create a total abortion ban in Georgia includes language that would define a ‘natural person’ to include ‘a member of the species Homo sapiens at any stage of development who is carried in the womb.'”White Christian Nationalism — Not Secularism — Is Destroying America, on Sojourners—“American Christianity brought us to this point.” Note: This article is in the progressive evangelical publication Sojourners, and includes some references to Pharisees. Christians’ demonization of the Pharisees is built on historical misinformation and has anti-semitic implications.
Ethiopia’s ‘first female comic book superhero’, on the BBC—“She’s a young woman called Ement Legesse and stars in a comic called ‘Hawi’. Her story is a historical fantasy set in modern-day Ethiopia and draws on the country’s rich past.”
