Again this week I want to pause from my usual blogging and instead point you to other places to read and learn about systemic racism and its pernicious impact on American society. Below are a couple of resources to check out; there are hundreds more you can find as well but these fit into the broader theme of technology and finance that I generally post about about. Thank you.
