How I wish the world was…

Why I Am a European Patriot,” Roger Cohen. New York Times, Saturday, January 26, 2019

“Patriotism is to nationalism as dienity is to barbarism.”

The End of Likability,” Katha Pollitt. The Nation, January 28/February 4, 2019

“Women dancing, women cursing, women running for president and not apologizing – what is the world  coming to?”

How Ralph Northam and others can repent of America’s original sin,” The Reverand William J. Barber II

“…Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s social life…included parties where white people dressed in blackface…implicating not only a few bad apples but also white elites across social and ideological lines. To African Americans who survived the status quo of racism, this is hardly a surprise. But it does raise again…the question of what it means to repent of America’s racist past and pursue a more perfect union.”

This is a beautiful and deeply sad article.

I wish I could mandate that everyone has to read Ta-Nahsi Coates’ book  Between the World and Me.
