when someone calls a white person “cracker”
stop supporting the myth that poor people don’t deserve to have “nice” things. because that sort of narrative continues to ignore the complexities of capitalism and struggle and takes us away from examining why it’s easier for someone living below the poverty line to get a smart phone than to get sustainable support for housing, employment at a livable wage, healthcare services, etc.

On the fiftieth anniversary of the 1964 children’s classic “Harriet the Spy,” Anna Holmes compares the book’s protagonist to Scout Finch of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and explores how these characters taught young girls to celebrate nonconformity: http://nyr.kr/P5YlIr
“In 1960, more women than ever were marrying, and at younger ages; it’s possible that Fitzhugh and Lee, whose protagonists are considered by biographers and scholars to be their alter egos, were registering their protest against the ubiquity of marriage and subtly agitating for female independence.”
