I had grand plans to start planting flowers and do a bit of garden planning this weekend, but snow. Also, sick kids, and the inability to tell if I'm coming down with a cold or allergies. So my weekend plans are going to involve a whole lot of nothing. And maybe soup. Here's what I've been looking at online lately.

With the Oscars this weekend, here is my post about why we skipped last year. And here are 21 of the most notable Oscar and Grammy snubs.

This article on white guilt as a medical condition is one of the best things I've read. You'll be quoting lines from it for the next two weeks.

Before Rosa Parks, there was Claudette Colvin. If you're not familiar with her story, you should be.

Representation is important. Here is a list of books that feature Muslim children as heroes. I'll be ordering a few.

Four women share what abortion was like before Roe v. Wade here. You can read a powerful account of abortion, regret, and healing here.

Kids address alternative facts for Black History month.

Ten quotes that explain racism to people claiming to be colorblind.

It's true that the current presidency has opened many eyes, but the reality remains that this is the same America it's always been for many, many people.
