An eloquent, to the point piece from Aziz Ansari from last night’s Saturday Night Live. He names the racist insurgency emerging today with seriousness and humor. Nicely done, Mr. Ansari.
NYTimes: Aziz Ansari’s Monologue on ‘Saturday Night Live’: Transcript
A Los Angeles Times reporter recently asked me and a couple of others which two books or essays students should read regarding race and racism in the Ferguson era. Whittling it down to only two was almost impossible, but I managed–it was an interesting exercise. I pared it down to James Cone’s A Black Theology of Liberation and a Harper’s Magazine interview between Cornel West and Jorge Klor de Alva. You can read more about these two texts in the L.A. Times article that came out yesterday.
