Race and Russian interference: Senate reports detail age-old tactic | World news | The Guardian
“Equally important was putting black activist language out on social media in order to scare white citizens into thinking their nation was changing, and mobilize white voters in support of Trump,” he said, pointing to posts that falsely showed Black Lives Matter activists with guns and claimed they planned to exercise their second-amendment rights.

“Black folks were not the target for that,” Johnson said, adding in reference to pro-law enforcement conservative reactionaries: “I’m convinced the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ crowd was the target there.”

Did Obama Win Because He Addressed White Americans as Individuals? - Atlantic Mobile
"Independence was more motivating," she said. "...Instead of saying something like, 'We're responsible for one another so we must do x behavior' -- do more gun control, recycle more -- it might be better to say, 'You can make this better for all Americans' ... really emphasizing their individual agency."

Greetings, Golden Gate Bridge jumper / Guess who commits suicide most often from our world-famous span?
I do know that when I cross the GG Bridge these days, I tend to glance over at those guard rails and safety wires with a different sort of appreciation, awareness and sighing sense of wonder. Here is this astonishing architectual icon set against one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world, all teeming with life and movement and possibility, and all quietly underscored with a dark thread of sadness and depression and death.

It is, of course, a metaphor, a microcosm, a symbol that's neither white, nor male, nor middle aged. It's simply universal.

36 Hours in San Francisco’s Mission District -
"With a population that is about half Latino, a third white and an estimated 11 percent Asian, the Mission still remains a wonderful mishmash. Where else can you find epicurean vegan cafes, feisty nonprofits and a Central American butcher shop that, for a memorable time, anyway, had women’s undergarments in the window?"

Science Daily: White Men Attach Greater Stigma To Mental Health Care
