Time again for the monthly recap of great articles the gatekeepers refused to Boost. See the previous month’s collection here.

I am a member of the Boost Nomination Program on this platform, tasked to find and recommend high-quality articles for the promotion called “Boost.” My primary criterion for nominating articles is if an article is informative and encourages the reader to think. Those criteria are at odds with the notion that instead, fluffy stories that don’t challenge the reader should be promoted.

Disturbingly, five of six of my May nominations of articles by or about nonwhite people were snubbed. I really don’t want to read anything into that and very much hope it was simply a coincidence.

Here are articles published in May that were hidden from you but are worth reading.

A serious author who deserves much more attention and consideration is Michael A Davis who wrote this eye-opening article about the unintended consequences of affirmative action. It apparently is too eye-opening for some.
