What's Happening: Charleston Edition

I labored over this particular Charleston post a lot. Combined with getting my mind back together after the tragedy, watching the news, and discussing the Confederate flag, I’ve been feeling pretty low and, honestly, didn’t feel like discussing it anymore. But that would be shirking my duty as a chronicler of history (in my modest station), so I wanted to say something. How I wanted to tackle it was difficult.

But thankfully, I’ve had people who have done it for me, probably with a lot more clarity than I could have at the time.

This is a post that’s been basically a month in development hell. So many articles, including the huge Cornel West teardown by Michael Eric Dyson. That was a great, if extremely long, read and I have my own opinions about West, many of which were supported by that article.

But this post isn’t about Cornel West! It’s about what’s been going on recently. So I got rid of the several pages’ worth of links and just narrowed it down to the last 10 or 11 I’ve culled this week. Here we go.
