Happy 2019, you gorgeous humans. I hope everyone got a chance to take some time off and refresh before the calendar reset. I don’t really believe in resolutions, but I do like the way significant dates give us a chance to pause and refocus on what counts. And we’re starting off strong in 2019 with an episode about what is and isn’t white supremacy, the recent resurgence of race science, and the responsibility white folks have to keep educating ourselves and working actively against white supremacy as a system. Here are some links!
- First up, if you’d like to read the peer review for Season 2 you can find it right here.
- My pal Dave Gaertner has crowdsourced a whole document of resources and information about the Gidimt’en raid, which you can access here. If you’d like to donate money, here’s the campaign I donated to.
- The excellent interview with Kyla Schuller I mentioned is “The Trouble With White Women” and the excerpt from Tressie McMillan Cottom’s new book Thick: And Other Essays is “Pregnant Black Women Are Treated as if They’re Incompetent.”
- And finally, three pieces taking a deeper dive into white supremacy and race science: an article on how white supremacy has always been mainstream, an exploration of the unwelcome revival of ‘race science,’ and a close examination of why Jordan Peterson resonates with white supremacists.
