Not dead, just resting.
The Saturday Night Card Game has a long and storied history at Legal Insurrection.
It started on October 8, 2009, in reaction to a post by Oliver Willis (blogging in his individual, not — ahem — Media Matters capacity), wherein he said:
That was the first of over 200 Saturday Night Card Game posts — almost every Saturday Night for over 5 years.
There’s no “best of” list, but here are just a few that I remember:
- The White Privilege Industrial Complex needs your children
- 2014 – Year of the Microaggression
- #WhiteWomanPrivilege meets Festivus: The airing of bitter intra-feminist racial grievances
- No, you cannot keep your Obama Halloween costume even if you like it
- Salon.com got a Confederate fever, and the only prescription, is more Confederate
- “Brown bag” controversy reveals chink in the armor of language police
- (For Chris Matthews, the race card keeps on paying, and paying, and …)
I’ll stop there, there are just too many.
The last post we did was way, way back on September 20, 2014: Civil rights activists: Django Unchained actress should apologize for playing race card. (See Featured Image.)
Since then, quiet.
I’m suffering from a localized form of the dreaded blogger burnout — localized to dealing with the endless idiotic and malicious uses of race either as a political weapon or just because.
I’m taking a temporary break from the Saturday Night Card Game. For my sanity.DONATE
