ITT Sound Off: Forced to Be Warriors

In light of Bari Weiss’ resignation from The New York Times, Maria and Julio have an honest conversation about being journalists of color. They also talk about what happens when newsrooms are majority-white, the continued surge of COVID-19 cases across the country, and the heartbreaking death of Naya Rivera.  ITT Staff Picks:  - Vivian Kane writes, "People like Weiss and Stephens are representative of a pervasive tactic among conservative media figures: to bash 'cancel culture' as the greatest threat to modern discourse while simultaneously demanding everyone who criticizes them be canceled," in this piece for The Mary Sue. - Alexis Madrigal, who was on our last ITT show, writes about a second coronavirus death surge in his latest for The Atlantic. - Alicia Ramírez writes for The Oprah Magazine about the influence Naya Rivera had on her life as an Afro-Latina actress playing one of the most visible lesbians on primetime TV.  Photo credit: Photo by Willy Sanjuan/Invision/AP, File
