Dispatches from Thanksgiving
Nino, my still-an-ex husband, got out of his really-just-a-mattress-on-the-floor bed for the first time two days ago, so that he could go get a test for Covid. I thought my son would have the scoop on how to get a Covid test because he volunteers at ...

The 9/11 post where we reunite
I was at the World Trade Center when it fell. Each year I write a post on 9/11. Here is the archive. Here is my post for today: When Nino came back to live with us he came back in stages. We had been spending a few weekends together for a long time, ...

Your comments make me realize my last post was a big mistake

Dear DNC: I'd vote for a tent pole before I'd vote for Joe Biden
Addendum: After reading 250 of your comments in response to this post (below), I have had a change of heart. I still hate Biden. But I think I also hate this post. So I've written a new post, over here. The Democratic Party's strategy is Trump is so ...

What a Black person thinks when they read this blog
Note from Penelope: This is a guest post of sorts. I asked Whitney to annotate one of my blog posts because I want to better understand the white privilege on my blog. I also thought this would be a way to share with you how much I learn from convers...

Quarantine with my ex changes my opinion about good careers
Things Nino hates about me: I yell. I'm ungrateful. I threw things when we were married. Things I hate about Nino: That he left. Five years ago I supported the kids after the divorce, so he's always had save-the-world jobs that pay almost nothing. Bu...

The College Board is a case study in corporate racism
Every day, one million families watch every move on the College Board website because it controls so much of the college application process. Today it looked like the site was hacked. There is bold, white copy centered on a black background that is u...

Protesters in Boston are setting off fireworks all night every night. And it's working.
Right after George Floyd was killed, there were fireworks in my neighborhood. All night long. I live in Roxbury, on a sliver of Boston between two gang territories. So I assumed the noise was gunshots. But a few days later, fireworks actually lit up ...

Memories of a racist childhood and a search for my new, anti-racist self
