Hello, fellow unicorns. This week, we’re a bit more international with our news bites, and I also have a few bonus stories that amused me. With all the horrible things that happen, it’s good to find a few points of light. Let’s get to it.
Greetings, Persephoneers. We have a varied roundup of news stories this week, but still quite a bit about police misconduct. Let’s get started, and we’ll end on an up-note, I promise.
Though I have a few other news stories of note that I will cover in a separate post, the past two weeks have been all about reading up on Michael Brown and Eric Garner’s deaths and the abysmal stats and stories from around our country that clearly say these two men are not isolated cases. If these links have been covered elsewhere, fine. Look again. Keep looking and listening so that we might incrementally stop the systemic racism people experience every day. I don’t know anyone who expects change overnight, but that’s still no excuse to pretend that it doesn’t exist. Let’s get started.
