#117: White Flight
By The Highlighter - Mark Isero • Issue #117 • View online
Welcome to The Highlighter #117! I’m happy you’re here. The first three articles this week — which focus on race — are in conversation with articles that have appeared previously. If you have time, consider them in tandem:
#1: “White Flight” –> “Birth of a White Supremacist” (#115)
#2: “The Gentrification of Soul Food” –> “Hot Chicken” (#88)
#3: “Slippery Slope” –> “Whose Heritage?” (#106)
The only odd duck this week comes last, and it’s a good one, too: a 30-minute adventure into the wacky world of the online mattress industry. Please enjoy! And if you’re in Oakland later today, swing by HHH #2 (last-minute tickets are still available).
