A while back, I’m afraid I bashed the hell out of MoveSmart.org — a seemingly well-meaning website that wants to practice something called “integrative moves”.
I have learned more about what that might mean through this post on Stuff White People Like:
White people like to live in these neighborhoods because they get credibility and respect from other white people for living in a more “authentic” neighborhood where they are exposed to “true culture” every day. So whenever their friends mention their home in the suburbs or richer urban area, these people can say “oh, it’s so boring out there, so fake. In our neighborhood, things are just more real.” This superiority is important as white people jockey for position in their circle of friends.
Maybe MoveSmart is on to something after all….
