Stay woke!

That rallying cry took on added urgency in November, not only with the election of Donald J. Trump, but with the passing of Gwen Ifill, a truth-teller who, like fellow journalist George Curry, left us this year with daunting journalistic shoes to fill.

Reports tell us that some news organizations are seeing huge spikes in donations and subscriptions as readers look to support newsrooms that hold Trump accountable.

That's a good thing. But we also must hold newsrooms accountable, especially on issues of diversity and inclusion.

"Richard Prince's Journal-isms" has sought to fill that role since 1991. It calls out the media when warranted; it lets news consumers know of best practices; it encourages our journalists of color and others who care about accurate and fair coverage. It tries to make sense of our new political and media reality.

"Journal-isms" received a heartwarming outpouring of support this year when readers came forward with ideas, suggestions and assistance as it was steered unexpectedly toward an independent path. A strategy committee evaluated business models and continues to do so.

Now it needs financial support to continue its mission. The new business entity "Richard Prince's Journal-isms" will be accepting gifts or loans that will help us in the media "stay woke." A Go Fund Me page has been created at < https://www.gofundme.com/richard-princes-journalisms>. The gifts are not tax deductible, but donors will be enrolled as "Journal-isms" charter members and as "Journal-isms" subscribers. (Make sure we have your preferred email address.)

[Update: the IRS has  determined that the gifts  are  tax deductible  effective  Feb. 9, 2017!]

Please feel free to forward this message to the like-minded with your endorsement.

Thanks. Let's stay woke!

Hello, all,

I posted this note yesterday in "Diversity's Greatest Hits, 2017 — Where Will They Take Us in the Year Ahead?" http://bit.ly/2Cfc0Wn

2017 was the first full year that “Journal-isms” published as an independent entity.

Thanks to readers who became moral and financial supporters, some contributing testimonials, and to the foundations who provided the first grants to the new Journal-isms Inc.

The “Stay Woke” drive continues.

Happy New Year!

Please read that as a special thanks to you!

Despite proclaiming their commitment to diversity, 50 years post-Kerner, America's newsrooms remain disproportionately white and tone-deaf to lingering issues of race and inequality in our changing society. Richard, thanks for your efforts to draw attention to these issues and hold the news industry accountable.
