#77: We Choose School Segregation
By Mark Isero • Issue #77 • View online
Thank you for opening Extras #77! It has been quite a week: the inauguration, the marches, the lies, the fear, the resistance. My first draft of this issue was titled “Alternative Facts.” Instead of publishing those pieces today, I’m going to sit on them for a week or two until better writing surfaces. It just didn’t feel right. It’s my way, I suppose.
That said, I’m excited about my four selections this week. The first piece is a Terry Gross interview of Nikole Hannah-Jones, who claims that white people could end school segregation but do not want to. The second piece offers a different way of thinking about how we should respond to homegrown American terrorists. After a photo break, I’ve included a video by Bill Moyers, who explores why we allowed Donald Trump to grow his repugnant birther lie. And last up is my first-ever article about art. You see, Extras is expanding its range! Please enjoy.
