There are so many smart and thought provoking articles around the web this week—here are a few of the ones we found most noteworthy.  

Guide to the solar eclipse: “On Aug. 21, at midday, people who live in, or have ventured to, a band about 70 miles wide arcing from Oregon to South Carolina will get to see the moon pass directly in front of the sun. For a minute or two day will turn to night.” (The New York Times)

How the late night set handled Charlottesville: “You can stand for a nation, or you can stand for a hateful movement. You can’t do both. And if you don’t make the right choice, I am confident that the American voter will.” (Vanity Fair)

Take the statues down: “The statues in public squares, the names on street signs, the generals honored with military bases—these are the ways in which we, as a society, tell each other what we value, and build the common heritage around which we construct a nation.” (The Atlantic)

“I don’t know how somebody can look at somebody, without knowing anything about them, and just project all this negativity that then turns into hate,” she says. “It’s hard for me cause I just don’t get it because I don’t look at anybody and feel that way.”

Balancing silence and action, and creating safe spaces: “I struggle with saying nothing and saying something because I don’t want a lack of speaking up to be perceived as not caring. But sometimes words and hashtags and online sentiment feel empty when it feels like actions are what is needed. But I know both/all are important.” (Design Sponge)

Why Charlottesville became ground zero: “Racism exists everywhere in America and is baked into the foundation of the country, but few places could beat Charlottesville in its symbolic appeal for white supremacists looking to make a point.” (Hive)

Trump refuses to set a moral standard: “He abdicated what presidents from Roosevelt to Reagan have regarded as a cardinal duty of their job: set a moral course to unify the nation.” (The New York Times)
