It’s been a while since I did one these, and I still need to write some reviews so let’s do a links round-up.
I woke up two mornings in a row to read about another black man being shot and killed by police.
There’s a new federal lawsuit against Trump for a case of child rape back in 1994, and I’ve literally only heard about this on Huffington Post. It’s no where in my Twitter feed. You’d think it’d be talked about more, since we’ve seen constant articles on Hillary’s email scandal, but apparently this isn’t worth talking about… if you Google “Trump child rape case”, there’s not even a CNN link. Maybe they’re afraid of getting their press access revoked by the Trump campaign. I hate this election.
The new Iron Man is going to be a 15-year-old genius black girl named Riri. This is exciting for SO many reasons… but at the same time, it appears Bendis will be the writer and I wish he wasn’t. Why can’t Marvel hire a POC/WOC author to write this?? I like Bendis, I love his Miles Morales Spiderman comics, and if he wants to use his popularity and influence to bring more diversity to comics, I’m all for it… but he could do that by urging Marvel to hire more POC and women on their creative teams.
Snapchat is going to roll a new feature called Memories, to basically make it more like Instagram, and I’m curious to see how that goes. I still haven’t gotten the hang of Snapchat and I know there’s so many cool bookish things to do with it.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and J-Lo are recording a song together to benefit Orlando Pulse victims, and let’s face it – if Lin’s involved, I’m instantly like 1000% more interested in checking something like this out.
Last week, SCOTUS gave a 5-3 positive ruling in a major abortion case, effectively making bullshit rules and laws intended to force abortion clinics to shut down illegal. Hells to the yes.
Are there any note-worthy links you want to share? Please do.
I don’t know about you guys, but these past couple weeks have been flying by. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday.
