Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About RaceWhy I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge. It took me a while to get into this one, but then I zipped through the last couple of chapters and the “Aftermath”. I appreciated the insight into racism in Britain and the author’s in-depth dissection of white feminism (vs intersectional feminism).
The Arrangement: A Good Omens ZineThe Arrangement: A charity art book inspired by Good Omens by Basil (FopDoodles). A quick one, as it was mostly fanart, with just a few textual bits.


*DERP* to the nth power…

White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial DivideWhite Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide by Carol Anderson. Excellent, very intense read. Many parts of it are heartrending and enraging and just… I had to stop reading for a bit to go donate to Black Lives Matter and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, if that helps you understand the power of this one.

How to Be an AntiracistHow to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X Kendi. This is not a “how to” book. It’s an autobiographical account of the author’s journey from racism to antiracism, with many asides setting historical context. It’s good, but it is not an easy read, in the somewhat tangled way books with an academic bent can have.
A Good Time for the Truth: Race in MinnesotaA Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota ed Sun Yung Shin. Excellent, eminently readable collection of thoughtful, thought provoking essays.
Black History In Its Own WordsBlack History in Its Own Words by Ron Wimberly. Slim collection of illustrated quotes from Black history makers.

You Can't Touch My Hair Deluxe: And Other Things I Still Have to ExplainYou Can’t Touch My Hair and Other Things I Still Have to Explain by Phoebe Robinson. Gave myself a bit of whiplash, starting this right after Me and White Supremacy and White Fragility, but it was good to take a break with a lighter look at heavy issues.

Making Our Way Home: The Great Migration and the Black American DreamMaking Our Way Home: The Great Migration and the Black American Dream by Blair Imani. This covers from 1865 through 1979 and I found it very helpful for helping me understand more how things got to where they are. I wish it would’ve included a few more recent decades, tbh. Great illustrations!

Mostly doomsurfing, but I’ve read some fanfic – and even some new fanfic (vs rereading, which I have been doing A LOT).


“If I don’t make eye contact, Mom won’t remove me from this kitty perch she claims is a ‘paper trimmer’!” -Mayhem, incorrectly

Linkity is committed to learning to be a better ally

A few lighter things at the beginning and end, but the middle is fierce.


Cats on my purple cat sheets, right underneath the ceiling fan!

It’s going to be a rollicking ride here, folks. Hold on to yer hats. Which you’re probably already doing, because this has been A Week. Heavier stuff down toward the end.


“I’m not sure why you say this is a ‘paper trimmer’, Mom, when it’s obviously a cat perch!” -Mayhem

Linkity laments

Things are darker and sadder here in Minneapolis this week and because my heart is pretty heavy (but we are safe), this will be one of those whirlwind type linkities.

Mayhem turned 14 on Wednesday! 😮

Print Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original ProjectsPrint Workshop: Hand-Printing Techniques and Truly Original Projects by Christine Schmidt. Interesting and wide-ranging projects, from using linoleum blocks to screenprinting to cyanotypes. Unfortunately, the book is a decade old, and some of the specialized materials don’t seem to be available anymore.


“Why doesn’t Mom ever go anywhere anymore?! It’s kind of creepy.” -Mayhem
