Tim Wise on racism and flooding

Tim Wise’s commentary (in LiP Magazine) on Rush Limbaugh, flooding in the Midwest, and comparisons to Katrina’s aftermath in New Orleans is (as usual) sharp, insightful, and well-researched. Despite what some say, racism is alive and well in our society: “Only when white folks stand up . . . only when we see challenging white racism as our burden, our responsibility, and as a fundamental part of what we need to do . . . will things likely change.”

    The link says the “domain has expired” whatever that means. What is (was?) LiP?

    Thanks for the heads up. LiP Magazine is (was?) a progressive magazine with some interesting commentary. I expect it to come back up. We’ll wait and see.
