Bridge tricks in the stack with chicken pants: TGIF (98)
TGIF! – Thank Grohl, Gauss, Glob, Galileo and Science it’s Friday, and again it’s time for our weekly reading recommendations, prepared to help you get some good reading time on your weekend. This week they’re curated for you by Jenn. Enjoy!

Culture is not one big thing. It’s lots of small things. And lots of small things add up to a big thing. It is not a mission statement stuck on a wall. It is not a cool coffee machine. It is the things you do, and always do, that add up the whole thing. It is action and not words.
I’m going to go in chronological order so you might begin to glimpse the tonnage and why what many white folks might feel is a “Where did all of this come from?” moment in society has been festering individually and collectively for the LIFETIME of pretty much every black or brown person living in America today regardless of wealth or opportunity.
