As news junkies, we are always working on several long form pieces at the same time; some we complete, other we don’t especially if we think another journalist or columnist has done justice to the subject. Sometimes we are persuaded that our atypical musings bring different, off the beaten track perspective to discussions of news and cultural discussions grabbing the collective national and global imaginations at any given moment.
With 2016 being an election year, we plan to be very busy so we’ll keep you up-to-date on what we are working on even as we continue to post shorter, off the cuff responses in our Side Eye and Cynic’s First Response Diary pieces.
Here’s what we are working on right now:
§ Donald Trump and the Possibility of the First Reality TV Star President
§ On Reparations as the Litmus Test for the Radical Liberal Imagination
§ What does American Exceptionalism Mean in the 2016 Presidential Race
§ Who Is Heir to the Obama Presidential Legacy and Why
§ #OscarsSoWhite and this Thing Called Diversity
§ Must Black Lives Matter be the Extension of MLK’s Civil Rights Movement?
Look out for a few book and film reviews too.
