1. Shark Week is a lie.

2. The Aging Myth.

3. A farmer’s perspective on our obsession with small-scale farms.

4. I love this.

5. Honor their unicorn.

6. Encyclopedia of Southern Food.

7. “I am a white privileged lady not a car lol”

8. I don’t need any more water bottles (it’s a problem) but I like the idea of cold water (or wine!) for 12 hours! My biggest hurdle with hydration is probably tepid water.

9. #IfTheyGunnedMeDown (also) (and this)

10. Legend. (also) (and, this too, on why you shouldn’t romanticize suicide) (and finally, this).

p.s. What White People Can Do– “We need to lock arms amidst all of this. If the police feel they are above the law with any one group, they will feel they are above the law with others. We need to learn from the civil rights movement. It wasn’t just black folks, it was everybody, because it wasn’t a black problem it was a moral issue. We are remembering 40 years after the Freedom Summer. That wasn’t just black people risking their lives, it was a community that went down to Mississippi because they knew that when any group within the nation is marginalized then we can’t be the nation we want to be.”
