Okay, not exactly. But after nearly two years of blogging, I am taking time off. I’ll be spending the next ten weeks (until mid-January-ish) cobbling together a manuscript for a book that sums up a good deal of what I’ve learned through writing and posting on Race Files.

That means there won’t be much in the way of new content from me. Instead, I’m unplugging, rejuvenating, reading, writing (long form this time), and reflecting off line. But, that doesn’t mean there won’t be any new content on Race Files. In fact, there’s a lot we’ll be re-posting and new content we’ll be publishing, including some video blog posts that we’re hoping you’ll give us feedback on when they go live.

The best way to keep up with us is by subscribing. As a subscriber you’ll receive notices every time something new posts here.

You can also keep up with ChangeLab, the racial justice laboratory the publishes Race Files. There’s groovy stuff brewing there so do pay ChangeLab a visit.

As this is a turning point for Race Files, I want to thank all of you for reading and responding to the posts on this site, keeping us honest and pushing us to think harder about thorny issues of race and racism and the unique and important place of Asian Americans in the racial hierarchy in America.
