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!
It’s raining plastic: Microscopic fibers fall from the sky in Rocky Mountains, on The Guardian—“The findings shocked Wetherbee, who had been collecting the samples in order to study nitrogen pollution.”
In Defense of Amy, the Best March Sister, on Jezebel—“Amy is the only little women to embrace the fact that she has desires untethered to the service of others. Save Amy, no one in the March house enjoys herself without first examining the fact that she shouldn’t.”“Why shall wee have peace to bee made slaves”: Indian Surrenderers During and After King Philip’s War, Ethnohistory, “This paper is an investigation of the treatment of surrenderers in King Philip’s War (1675–1676) in New England, particularly with regard to enslavement.” I found this paper while doing research for a blog post, and found it fascinating.
The Narrow Path For Black Politicians Who Want To Be President — And How It’s Changing, on FiveThirtyEight—“In fact, we may already be in a new political environment, one where black politicians can afford to be more liberal on racial issues.”
