Ferguson

Here are some pieces on Ferguson, police profiling, and racism in the US that everyone should be reading:

Andrea Cambron’s “I’m Polite, Middle-Class and Harassed by Police. Here’s why.”

Janee Wood’s “12 Ways to be a White Ally to Black People”

Ta-Neishi Coates, who, if he isn’t already in your required reading, should be. Currently the first two pieces are on Ferguson and are must reads. But so is everything else. As a public historian and intellectual of the first order, Coates’s grasp of race relations in America is unparalleled.
