OUR SUNDAY LINKS

December 21, 2014

  •  This week two men were arrested in the case of Jada, a Texas teenager who was horrifically raped at a party, and then subsequently abused on social media, with photos from the attack having been circulated among her classmates. Jada has been incredibly brave throughout the trial — in an interview with MSNBC, she said, “I would like to see justice. Justice in full effect and that’s it.”
  •  “Do Black Lives Matter in Canada?” is a short but important read on systemic racism in our country, focusing on the way Canadians sought to distance themselves from anti-Black prejudice following Ferguson.

“Over the past several months, dozens of (primarily white) commentators have noted that ‘Canada’s own Ferguson’ is the violence inflicted on Indigenous people by Canadian police. Such analogies, particularly when made by those of us who are non-Black and non-Indigenous, are problematic.”

  • Journalist Jesse Brown responds to the CBC’s announcement that it plans to remove all of Jian Ghomeshi’s Q shows from their online archive. What’s interesting about this short piece is that Brown explains how this material was instrumental to his investigative piece, and served (from a journalistic perspective) to corroborate the statements of Ghomeshi’s victims.
  • The New Yorker and The Atlantic offer some final thoughts on Serial, which officially wrapped up this week. Have you found a podcast replacement for Serial? If so, share in the comments below!

 

Happy Holidays!
