Happy July - I hope this blog post finds you in good spirits on this, the first of July. For much of the U.S., it's a heatwave and so for those of you who are, like me, sensitive to the heat/humidity combo, make sure you keep hydrated, and if you don't have AC, be sure to keep your place as dark as possible and/or find places to camp out - like at the movies, the library, etc. And, of course, if you live near someone who is elderly, make sure you check in on them even if it's just to...

After backlash over the removal of tracks by R Kelly and XXXTentacion from official playlists, Spotify has been forced to rethink its new 'hate speech and hateful behavior' policy.� But there are no easy choices. "It would be as wrong for Spotify to opt for the ‘neutral platform’ approach," writes Mark Mulligan of MIDiA, "as it would be ‘arbitrary' censorship." via www.hypebot.com Continue reading

I like and admire Pope Francis. Regular readers of my blog and columns know that, as do readers of a book I co-authored with the Rev. Dr. Paul T. Rock called Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protestant Walk into a Bar: Lessons for the Christian Church. So you might expect that I would find much to like in the new documentary movie about the pontiff, "Pope Francis: A Man of His Word." And I did enjoy many aspects of the film when I saw it Monday evening with my wife and friends. I especially loved seeing the pope alone in... Continue reading

(from the archives July 2014) Q: Is it offensive to refer to black people as "black" and/or "African American"? White people seem like they're walking on eggshells, and they say "African American" a lot (when people might be neither African nor American). A: I'm actually surprised that nobody remembers how the change originally occurred. In the late 80s when professors like Skip Gates was making a big splash at Harvard and Toni Morrison was the toast of the planet, a monumental book was published called the Norton Anthology of African-American Literature. Anyone who was paying attention would know and recognize... Continue reading

LIKE SEVERAL of my friends, I wonder where to find engaging conversations if I don’t use Facebook. I’m looking at six of the newsfeeds that capture my attention. Sometime in 2000, I started reading Gavin’s Blog as his musing percolated through Radio Userland alongside Karlin Lillington’s. A few days ago, Gavin wondered if it is time for him to abandon Facebook, the place where all your connections (and the connections of your connections) are easily hovered up and sold along to companies specializing in advancing special messages. So I clicked into Gavinsblog to see if he reignited conversation there. His... Continue reading
