The Ongoing Race Discussion– Sort Of

leave a comment »

A racial summit/town hall still hasn’t been called but Americans are still talking about around race.

The latest magazine to spotlight race is New York Magazine with their August 18 issue with the headline race.  Inside are four interesting articles like the one by controversial race writer John McWhorter who writes about how the future generation of Americans will think of race.  The article Black & Blacker by Vanessa Grigoriadis talks about the Obama marriage and their representational blackness.  Talking About Not Talking About Race by Patricia J Williams and The Color Coded Campaign by John Heilemann is about America at large and their fascination and aversion to this years hot topic.

So pick it up.  It will be something to not talk about around the water cooler.
