Saturday Link Love: Labor, Pavement, Rules, and Babies

Saturday Link Love: Labor, Pavement, Rules, and Babies September 7, 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!

A Nation That Isn’t Crazy About Labor Celebrates Labor Day, on Wonkette—“The basic irrelevance of Labor Day, as a thing people give any thought to, means the federal holiday succeeded beyond the wildest dreams of those who made it official.”

‘Have you noticed white people never move out of your way?’ The politics of the pavement, on gal-dem—“Here I am in the UK, millions of miles removed from the American South. But to me, the hierarchy is still obvious.”

Attention Angry White People: 8 New Rules, on Medium—“You have to give up any food that any immigrant group has ever introduced here. No Mexican food, no Chinese, no Thai hot, no sushi, no Indian buffet, no soul food — no nuthin’ but potatoes and whatever some Native American might be kind enough to cook up for you.”

What adopting a white baby taught one black family, on Today—“On two occasions, people have called the police to report a kidnapping.”
