    The Atlantic ^ | July 15, 2020 | John McWhorter
    I must admit that I had not gotten around to actually reading Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility until recently. But it was time to jump in. DiAngelo is an education professor and—most prominently today—a diversity consultant who argues that whites in America must face the racist bias implanted in them by a racist society. Their resistance to acknowledging this, she maintains, constitutes a “white fragility” that they must overcome in order for meaningful progress on both interpersonal and societal racism to happen. White Fragility was published in 2018 but jumped to the top of the New York Times best-seller list amid...

    Until last week, Gary Garrels was senior curator of painting and sculpture at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). He resigned his position after museum employees circulated a petition that accused him of racism and demanded his immediate ouster. "Gary's removal from SFMOMA is non-negotiable," read the petition. "Considering his lengthy tenure at this institution, we ask just how long have his toxic white supremacist beliefs regarding race and equity directed his position curating the content of the museum?"

    o I guess this is how it’s going to be everywhere, for the foreseeable future: More than 1,200 current employees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have signed a letter calling for the federal agency to address “ongoing and recurring acts of racism and discrimination” against Black employees, NPR has learned. In the letter, addressed to CDC Director Robert Redfield and dated June 30, the authors put their call for change in the context of the coronavirus pandemic’s disproportionate impact on Black people and the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Rayshard Brooks. NPR obtained...

    In recent days, America has produced an astounding spectacle. Americans desecrated and demanded removal of their own statues to their own heroes, including African Americans who fought for the Union; Hans Christian Heg, a Norwegian immigrant and dedicated abolitionist who modeled courage and gave his life in the Civil War; Taduesz Kosciuszko, the Polish-born designer of West Point who left money in his will to purchase freedom for American slaves; the World War II Memorial to the men and women who actually did fight fascism; and the Emancipation Memorial, a monument paid for by freed slaves, dedicated in a speech...

    A student at Texas A&M University who claimed he found racist notes left on his car was accused by campus cops of leaving them there himself. A&M senior Isaih Martin, 21, posted an image on Twitter of the notes he found on his car parked outside a campus apartment building in June saying 'all lives matter,' 'you don't belong here' and the n-word. The alleged discovery later prompted an investigation and $1,200 reward offered for information leading to the arrest of a suspect.

    CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon teamed up to mock other media for reporting on the surge of violent crimes being committed in several major cities. This year, New York City has seen the worst gun violence in 25 years. Los Angeles saw a 250% increase in crime—including a 56% increase in shootings compared to last year. In Chicago, shootings were up by 76% compared to a year ago. Lemon characterized the reporting as "racist. Black people shooting Black people is nothing new. It has been a pattern stretching back decades. To act all alarmed about it now is plays...

    I have nothing but love for the phrase "Black Lives Matter." But I have NO love for the POLITICAL organization that exploits this phrase with no actual action or love for the actual loss of black lives. When I say that ALL Lives Matter that is not hate filled or political, it is actually a heart felt sentiment. I feel it. I claim it. And I WALK it. I am no longer bothered by any names you call me. Nor do I care what labels you want to put on me, or the lines you want to create to define...

    The NBA’s reigning champions rolled into Walt Disney World on Thursday ahead of the league’s restart plan and delivered a strong message in the process. The Toronto Raptors pulled into the Disney campus in a pair of buses outfitted with “Black Lives Matter” written across the sides. Several players had T-shirts with the same phrase on them, too.

    Syracuse athletic director John Wildhack has added a position to his department, bucking a trend toward athletic cuts during the coronavirus pandemic. Salatha T. Willis was named associate athletic director for diversity, culture and climate this week. He is charged with developing and implementing new ways to create an equitable culture among the university’s student-athletes, administrators, coaches and staff in the athletic department. “Our society is going through an incredibly challenging time,” Wildhack said. “Whether it’s Ahmaud Arbery, whether it’s George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, there are blatant acts of racism and people murdered. You combine that with 400 years of...

    President Trump concluded his Friday night Mount Rushmore speech by announcing the signing of an executive order creating a “National Garden of American Heroes” in which the statues of those anarchists would consign to the ash heap of history would reside to remind future generations of how we became who and what we are, to remind us of the struggle against tyranny and injustice. Trump righteously stood before the visages of the likes of Thomas Jefferson, the maligned slave-owner who helped create a nation and a process that would end slavery. He stood before the face of Abraham Lincoln, the...

    As protests erupted in Los Angeles in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody, some of the demonstrations were led by Asian Americans looking to the past to inform their activism. The young activists recalled the 1992 Los Angeles uprising, which was sparked after a jury acquitted three Los Angeles police officers of use of excessive force for brutally beating Rodney King and failed to reach a verdict for a fourth officer, as well as the killing of Latasha Harlins, a 15-year-old Black girl who was shot by a Korean convenience store owner who said...

    As I wrote nearly three years ago: "Perhaps the second greatest libel — and certainly the most widespread — is that America is a racist country that oppresses its minorities and women. We can call it the American Libel." (The greatest libel was the infamous blood libel, the fabricated charge spread in Europe for hundreds of years by Christian anti-Semites that Jews kill Christian children to use their blood to bake matzos — unleavened bread — for Passover.) But if America is so racist, why are there so many race hoaxes? Virtually every time we read about a swastika painted...

    A White woman accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail at a police car in late May during a George Floyd protest in Brooklyn claims she was given the device by a Black protester, New York prosecutors say. But investigators said the woman got the bottle for the Molotov cocktail from a friend in upstate New York, according to court filings from the US District Court, Eastern District of New York.
