Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier.
Are Private Schools Immoral? A conversation with Nikole Hannah-Jones about race, education, and hypocrisy, on The Atlantic—“In a hyper-competitive economy where test scores and college admissions and lifetimes earnings are all linked, Hannah-Jones has seen that the soft benefits of integration, like empathy or compassion, are low on a family’s priority list. ‘Most white people are willing to trade that,’ she has found.”
Live Aid: The Terrible Truth, on SPIN—“One night at dinner in late 1985, a friend talked about Ethiopia being in a civil war. Neither I nor anyone else at the table had heard that.” [This post is two years old, but fascinating.]
The complicated relationship between tipping and sexual harassment, on Mic—“In interviews with Mic, current and former restaurant workers detailed repeated incidents of unwanted sexual attention from customers. These incidents highlight the complicated dynamics of minimum wage, tipping and pressure to flirt with customers.”‘
A miracle of wrong: Hanna Rosin error reborn in Mark Regnerus book, on Family Inequality—“Anyway, Rosin doesn’t feature prominently in the Regnerus review (you’re welcome), but this was an interesting nugget, because for all their differences, there are some similarities between Regnerus’s fanatical religious anti-feminism and Rosin’s sophisticated postfeminist antifeminism.”
