Weekly Web Roundup

Inspired by the Man Repeller's "the best of the Internet" and Cupcake and Cashmere's "Links I Love," I'm bringing you six of my favorite articles, gifs and videos from the week.  I hope you find the links as equally inspiring and thought provoking as I have.

1. Black Teens Are Breaking the Internet and Seeing None of the Profits: I had already planned to share this article when then The Fat Jewish literally stole my brother's content as his own.  Is comedic appropriation the new cultural appropriation?

2. Samantha Irby's unofficial Sociology of White People 101 will make your sides split, trust me.  "But with every politely declined camping invitation and spat out mouthful of roasted beets, it became that much clearer to me that, despite my penchant for craft beers and J.Jill knit cardigans, I AM NOT WHITE."  

3.  Just when you thoughts media outlets sensationalizing trends with obscure names like normcore was over, New York Magazine coins "gorpcore" as the new frontier.  Think Patagonia fleeces, North Face puffers and Birkenstock sandals for a crowd whose idea of outdoorsy is the Hamptons.

4. What does it mean for a society and its willingness to address income inequality when wealth is as stigmatized as masturbation?  

5. Modern Love always gets me.  "Finding God in a Hot Slice of Pizza" is no different.
