– “Justice should be the affirmation of our existence.” Mychal Denzel Smith being awesome: The Death of Michael Brown and the Search for Justice in Black America

– has been a great place this week – so many posts on Robin Williams, and a great one tonight on what’s going on in Ferguson. Check them out (this one is by my favorite writer over there, @courtenlow): Why Do We Personalize Celebrity Deaths?

– I can’t yet read anything about Robin Williams without tearing up. This one is hard. Harder than I would have thought: ‘He was a hero to me’: Paul F. Tompkins on Robin Williams
