Giving a shit. Sociologist Mark Warren thinks you should really look into it. He even wrote a book about it, Fire in the Heart, which he’ll be discussing over at the Harvard Book Store this evening. The specific kind of shit that Warren will be advocating the generous giving of will be racial justice, and even more specifically, the myriad of reasons why even the lilies of the lily-white have much to gain through offer up their fecal matter on the subject. Because it’s kinda worth a crap or two, honestly. Warren can put it a lot purtier than we can, though.
