Weekend Whats

What to Watch: I’ve been digging Dear White People, the Netflix series, in which “students of color navigate the daily slights and slippery politics of life at an Ivy League college that’s not nearly as ‘post-racial’ as it thinks.” The show is insightful, entertaining, and has a very unique storytelling structure. Give it a try.

+ What to Stream: SF hosts the latest summer music festival. You can stream some of the acts from Outside Lands. Look for my face in the crowd on Saturday during performances by NextDraft-approved bands, Royal Blood and Cage the Elephant. (I’ll be the old guy trying to dress and act like a young guy.)

+ What to Scratch: In celebration of the 44th anniversary of the birth of hip hop, Google has replaced its logo with a pair of working turntables and a crate of records to scratch and mix. And Tim Carmody made an intro to hip hop playlist on Spotify.

+ What to Read: “Ten years from now, a lot of these alt-right concepts are going to be very mainstream in white people’s minds. Look at feminism. It started as a fringe movement. Now it’s mainstream, left and right.” In Harper’s, Seyward Darby reports from the frontlines of the women’s alt-right movement: The Rise of the Valkyries.
