#263: Is Freedom White?
By Mark Isero • Issue #271 • View online
Welcome to October, loyal readers! Thank you for opening today’s issue of The Highlighter. It’s a good one. Don’t worry: This week’s lead article is not clickbait; rather, it’s an outstanding essay that explains why white people feel threatened when people of color gain freedom. I recommend it highly, even if you’re not a history buff.
If you prefer less history, scroll down to read a strong argument to reopen schools, a clear justification for reparations, and a surprising connection between the wellness industry and QAnon. Please enjoy!
+ Sign up for Article Club this month and discuss “Miranda’s Rebellion,” one of our favorite articles so far this year. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Stephanie McCrummen (who also broke the Roy Moore story) will be answering our questions. In case you want to know what you’re getting yourself into, here’s a breakdown. If you join, you’ll get your first post this Sunday.
