Sunday Reads


… brought to you from a Windy and Rainy Cape Town.

  1. Oh Judy Blume! So many memories of first books! (NYT)
  2. Jeez! Grew up on this stuff and never had the frame of mind to think of the broader circumstances.
  3. I kind of want to be like these women! (NYT)
  4. An interesting experiment on race, wonder if it would work in South Africa
For white people … means eventually coming to the understanding that they’re white — and, more particularly, to understand, on a gut level, what white privilege actually means to them. White people are raised to believe they have no race, that they are “normal.” Their whiteness becomes like water, or air — so pervasive as to be invisible.
