New Bay City Beacon goodness: Exclusive Suburbs Pit Labor Against Renters in Housing Package Fight.
As for things I’ve been reading, I thought The Alt-Right Is Not Who You Think They Are was worth a read. “To complicate matters further, many people in the alt-right were radicalized while in college. Not only that, but the efforts to inoculate the next generation of America’s social and economic leaders against racism were, in some cases, a catalyst for racist radicalization. Although academic seminars that explain the reality of white privilege may reduce feelings of prejudice among most young whites exposed to them, they have the opposite effect on other young whites. At this point we do not know what percentage of white college students react in such a way, but the number is high enough to warrant additional study.”
AT the end of the day, “The challenges embodied by the violence in Charlottesville are not going to be resolved on their own.”
