Of course ‘white privilege’ exists – you can even see it in the playground

A parliamentary report has blamed the use of the term “white privilege” for contributing to the “neglect” of white working-class children in the education system. Some MPs on the Education Select Committee have branded the term “politically divisive”, suggesting it may undermine school commitments to equality if they use it.There is, it appears, an attempt to erase the phrase – to portray it as harmful, to claim (as the committee’s six Conservative members who voted the majority report through have claimed) that it is “alienating” to disadvantaged white communities. But surely this is a straw man argument. Call it something...

My Reckless In-Laws Want to Take My Son on Vacation

Care and Feeding is Slate’s parenting advice column. Have a question for Care and Feeding? Submit it here or post it in the Slate Parenting Facebook group. My son is 8 years old and has been invited to spend a week with his cousin (from my husband’s side) of the same age at the beach. Only he was invited (not my other kids), which is fine since he is really close to that particular cousin. However, I have an issue. If I’m accused of being a helicopter parent, then my in-laws are the polar opposite. They drink and smoke (many substances) in front of their kids. They are laid back and love to stay up late and have fun. They also have no problem driving while tipsy, and don’t even have booster seats for their older kids. Obviously, their life, their choice, but we are talking about them becoming my son’s primary caregivers for a week. Since becoming a parent, I’ve become a “stick in the mud” according to them. I make my kids use car seats and booster seats, I make them go to bed at a reasonable time, I limit their sugar (they get crazy). I’m simply no fun. When I was approached about this trip, my first reaction was “absolutely not,” but I can’t really say why without creating a big rift that makes it look like I’m judging their parental style. My husband understands my fears but wants to give his family some credit, after all, they managed to successfully raise kids of their own. I’m uncertain of where to go from here. Say no, say yes, say yes with conditions that would absolutely affect how the family kicks back during their vacation. And can I even trust them to fulfill basic parenting rules, such as not drinking and driving?

Walmart is practically giving away this 75-inch 4K TV for Prime Day

It’s Prime Day, and that means insane Prime Day 4K TV deals. If you’re looking for a great new (and huge) TV, this is the right place and the right time. Right now you can get a 75-inch Sony 4K TV for $798 at Walmart, saving you a similarly massive $502 on the usual price. This is likely the biggest TV in this price range, and because it’s Prime Day you won’t break the bank. The first day of this shopping holiday is coming to a close though, so grab it before the sale ends or it sells out. That could be any minute now!

Tucker Carlson Distorted My Reporting in His Latest Jan. 6 Conspiracy Theory

I don’t take Tucker Carlson seriously. No one should. Carlson’s own employer, Fox News, even says as much about its primetime host. So I was amused last week when a Google News alert told me that Carlson mentioned my name in his June 15 monologue. “Trevor Aaronson’s book ‘The Terror Factory’ analyzed every terrorism prosecution from 2001 to 2013,” Carlson told his viewers. “Aaronson found that at least 50 defendants were on trial because of behavior that the FBI had not only encouraged, but enabled. FBI agents were essentially the plotters in these crimes. They made the crimes crimes.”

A tiny Alaska town is split over a goldmine. At stake is a way of life

They have gathered berries, hunted moose and raised their families, sheltered from the extremes of winter by the black, saw-toothed peaks of the Iron Mountain. Now...
