Note to Tumblr FFB: I dropped Adrian Peterson today. The rest of you can claim him off waivers on Sunday if you have any expectations there. I’m going to attempt to roll with what I’ve got through the year. My bench is a disaster zone of injuries. For now. 

Btw Christina, I also dropped Boykin and didn’t bother to make a pickup because literally I just had no expectations for him at all.

Chinese factory workers are not welcome at XOXO. This is a profoundly uncomfortable thing to say because it feels like punching down, but it is true. Chinese factory workers are not independent creators. What inspiration would they find in hearing John Gruber talk about Google Reader’s impact on his business model?”

What’s truly necessary is for white people to have hard conversations about injustice with other white people, not gratuitous arguments but challenges that count. I once sat aghast and silent at a dinner table as a white NYPD cop who worked in the Bronx and a white millionaire who was partly raised by servants of color found common ground in jokes about black incarceration and undocumented Latinos—jokes that reflected real choices they would likely make in their lives, choices that would actually hurt people. In retrospect, their racist solidarity and my silence were all one; silence like mine is what makes this kind of lethal solidarity possible.

You know how sometimes a piece comes along just when you need to read it? This is very good and sobering, in light of the privilege of silence/tight-lipped “I don’t want to get into this” smiles/and deciding to “talk with them about it when the time is right”, which few of us (self included) are immune to.
