In light if this steaming pile of stupidity—in which one of the “concerns” raised against American Dirt is that the “controversial” book, which is apparently about Mexican migrants, was written by a white American (gasp!)—I think it’s important for all you pearl-clutchers out there to read this timely essay by George Packer.
Oh. Wait. That would require y’all to embrace complexity rather than simply “bask in the warmth of a blinding glow” of your own moral certainty. Or, you know, to actually read the book before sanctimoniously denouncing it.
