Drop It Like It’s Hot

 Hello everyone, thanks for a great week of interesting conversation.  I am particularly pleased with how respectful the conversation has been this week, given that we tackled some particularly troubling ideas.  We cannot always agree however, I feel that as long as we are conversing, some positive gains will be made.  You never know if something that something you say will turn out to be a significant teaching moment to someone and that is what is so great about spaces like this.

Once again, I would like to take the time to remind everyone about the open guest-posting policy.  If there is an issue that you have not seen covered here and you would like to weigh in, please feel free to either send your original work or a cross-post to womanistmusings [at]  Also, please  feel free to send a response to a post that you may be in disagreement with that has been published here.  When we examine issues from as many sides as possible, we deepen our understanding of the issues, as well as create spaces that are more inclusive.

Below you will find a list of posts that I found interesting this week.  Please take note: I did not read the comment sections, so read those at your own risk.  When you are done showing these bloggers some love, don’t be afraid to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
