How to Decide When a Photo Should Be Black and White
When you first start getting into photography, it’s very easy to fall into a habit of converting almost every image you take to black and white. I know I did it.
The thing is, while black and white images can look classy or cool, they’re not always strong images. Removing all the color can take away from a photo if you don’t do it...

I'm talking here about the alt-right, e.g. Milo Yiannopoulos' crowd, who self-profess that this was partly why they voted for Trump. People for whom this election was largely cultural, and saw Trump as a "fuck you" to the safe-space, microaggression, language-policing left.
