* '''2019-11-09''': Via ''The Nation'', “[https://www.thenation.com/article/lauren-michele-jackson-white-negroes-interview/ Lauren Michele Jackson Wants to Change How We Talk About Appropriation]”: “I honestly can’t remember when I first encountered [[The White Negro|Mailer’s essay]], but it was in the back of my head as I was compiling this project and thinking of a name for it. In some ways, the connections between these two works are fairly loose: I’m borrowing a term and elaborating upon it for my own purposes.
