Saturday Link Love: Blackness, Daycare, and Whitefield

Saturday Link Love: Blackness, Daycare, and Whitefield May 4, 2019

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!

One Woman’s Fight to Claim Her ‘Blackness’ in Brazil, on Foreign Policy—“The quotas implemented in universities and government departments were born of attempts to push back against this pervasive colorism — the privileging of light skin over dark.”

The High Cost of Doing Daycare, on Topic Magazine—“This is the rock and the hard place that both childcare providers and parents in need of care find themselves in. The reality is that the country’s nearly 675,000 childcare providers, who serve one in three children four and under and one in four older kids, are often just squeaking by.”

George Whitefield was worse than Hybels, Swaggart, Haggard, Patterson, Pressler, Bakker, Hinn, Tilton and all the rest put together, on Slacktivist—“[I]n 1740 slavery was illegal in the colony of Georgia. As it always had been. Whitefield wanted to change that, because he was sure that abducting a bunch of God’s children and violently forcing them to work without pay, forever, would make his plantation profitable and his orphanage viable.”
