Racism isn't logical...it's emotional
Prompted by the recent event in Charlottesville and the explosion of news + discussions surrounding it. Not really here to comment on the event itself, but here are some of my musings and experiences as a person of colour + what I think about racism + the conversations about racism.

Why are women joining the ‘alt-right’?
After the violent “Unite the Right” white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last Saturday, the “alt-right” has come under renewed scrutiny. Its ideology rejects Jewish people, people of color, LGBTQ people and immigrants, and is dominated by white men -- so why are some women joining it? Harper’s Magazine’s Seyward Darby, who reported on the issue, joins Hari Sreenivasan.
Rise of the "We": Theo Wilson at TEDxDenverTeachers
Change is coming, and the shape it will take is a change in consciousness captured in the difference between I and We. A new consciousness predicated on the ability to communicate and collaborate across cultures, between disciplines, and among countries will change the world as we know it. Presented by Theo Wilson, founding member Denver Slam Nuba.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Damon Tweedy, "Black Man in a White Coat"
In his first book, Tweedy, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke and a practitioner at the Durham VA Medical Center, explores the significance of race in the medical world. Tracing his own experience as a medical student on a full scholarship—who at one point is mistaken for a maintenance worker—Dr. Tweedy exposes some of his profession’s outdated assumptions, while also showing the very real impact of socio-economic factors on the health of black Americans.
