Article of the Year--2017 in Review

I enjoy reading (and obviously writing, hence having a blog). I also try to stay abreast of everything form popular culture, to world news, and anything that I just find interesting. Stellar writer Ta-Nehisi Coates (who also has been at work making, "Black Panther," comics for Marvel) earlier this year wrote an article for The Atlantic as fascinating as it is depressing, "Donald Trump is the First White President." It basically breaks-down how Trump  made his whole campaign based around undoing the work of the Black man before him and won that way. It digs into how despite media claims that Trump appealed to people for a myriad of reasons, at the end of the day it was his whitness all the way that got him elected. The article is horrendously depressing and also very necessary reading.
