Happy Thursday, loyal readers! Especially when work is busy (definitely true this week), I look forward to carving out time to read, reflect, and share thought-provoking articles with you. I’m appreciative of this reading community — whether you joined this month, or five years ago, or anywhere in between.
I couldn’t decide which article should lead this week’s issue, so if you have time, I recommend that you read both. “The Power of American Denial
” and “America’s Untouchables
” talk to each other, exploring our country’s choice not to reckon with the systemic white supremacy and anti-Blackness right in front of our faces.
Also, don’t forget about the two articles (focusing on TikTok and policing) after the adorable puppy photo (thanks, Erin). They’re worth your time, too. As always, I hope at least one article resonates with you, and if it does, please hit reply and tell me what you think. Have a great week!
