Friday roundup: Five things worth paying attention to this week

12.27. 2019 Posted By: Ben Tapper 103 Times read

Here are five things worth paying attention to this month. I recommend selecting one or two and jumping in over the next week.

1. I’ve recently become a pescatarian, and as I’ve slowly begun modifying my diet, I’ve discovered the magic of seitan.

2. What happened to Black Wall Street? White rage burned it to the ground.

3. If you’re looking for inspiring TED talks, look no further.

4. Black children experience school much differently than their white counterparts.

5. If you’ve adopted a child of a different race or ethnicity than yourself, you need to hear this.
