A running list of things people smarter than me have written about race.


Colorlines:  a daily news site where race matters, featuring award-winning investigative reporting and news analysis.

Water Cooler Convos: You know how Black folx always find, make, and maintain spaces to be ourselves away from the white gaze? Like, how we frequently use African American Vernacular English in the presence of “mixed company” to discuss issues and topics they probably don’t understand or truly care about? Or, how we often think more deeply about seemingly unimportant popular culture issues simply because we are Black?
Well, that’s Water Cooler Convos.


Intersection: Every two weeks, senior editor Jamil Smith will discuss and debate issues surrounding race, gender, and all the ways we identify ourselves and one another. We hope the conversations with everyday folks, activists, politicians, and you, too can help us all understand identity a lot better.
