“Maybe a diversity panel should be all white.

Think about it: A panel on diversity with no diversity on it. The outrage would be immediate, even from people of color. And yet maybe that is what should happen. And maybe the first question should be why do we need a black person on a panel to talk about inclusion when it’s the white person who needs to figure out how to include?”

  • Claudia Rankine is donating her $625,000 stipend from her MacArthur genius grant to found the Racial Imaginary Institute. Learn more about it here.
  • On Carson McCuller, a white writer “whose own personal turmoil and self-destruction may be at the root of the enormous insights about difference found throughout her work.”
  • Halloween is coming up, but don’t worry you’ve still got a week to plan your costume. Here’s everything you need to know to avoid donning a violent and appropriative costume.

I hope you stay well hydrated and well moisturized this week. XO
