Some upbeat, some chill

Sad world right now

You could fill the infinite expanse of the internet with black people that America has failed in this way. (The Cut)

And cried through this because I miss decency: Becoming (Roger Ebert’s Review)

US and South Korea reported first coronavirus cases on the same day, and the U.S. is facing the same problem we were two months ago…. (The Atlantic)

An Anti-Gay Crusader and Her Gay Son Were Making It Work. Then Came Trump. (Medium). I stand with acceptance.

Joy the Baker always says it well, ‘distinctively not ready’ in her Sunday reads (Joy the Baker)

It’s real:

China and conscious uncoupling (China Law Blog)

Gaslighting (Medium): “From one citizen to another, I beg of you: Take a deep breath, ignore the deafening noise, and think deeply about what you want to put back into your life. This is our chance to define a new version of normal, a rare and truly sacred (yes, sacred) opportunity to get rid of the bullshit and to only bring back what works for us, what makes our lives richer, what makes our kids happier, what makes us truly proud. We get to Marie Kondo the shit out of it all. We care deeply about one another. That is clear. That can be seen in every supportive Facebook post, in every meal dropped off for a neighbor, in every Zoom birthday party. We are a good people. And as a good people, we want to define — on our own terms — what this country looks like in five, 10, 50 years. This is our chance to do that, the biggest one we have ever gotten. And the best one we’ll ever get.”
