Wow, I've missed a lot. I think we have some issues to work through. I am not really sure what to do, but I think it is vital that we make this space more welcoming for POC. I have a few ideas but I'm not sure if they're good, so if any POC think that my ideas are crap feel free to ignore them.

I think we definitely need to close regestrations for now. Maybe we could have an approval process, where white people must do some "pre-readings" and answer some questions about racism to be able to get in. POC can join without doing these pre-readings. These pre-readings would be picked by POC and would maybe be a few articles about unlearning white supremacy and not befriending nazis. I also think maybe the white people on this instance can have their accounts locked temporarily until they complete the pre-readings. Hopefully this will filter out unsafe white people to some degree to provide a better space for POC.

I think it is also important for POC on this instance to be able to safely speak up. Maybe an anonymous way for POC to be able to raise any issues that they have. I think it would also be good to have these issues be visible to all, so even if the small group of moderators don't address them, it is easier to keep moderators accountable.

Of course if the person reporting the issue feels like making the issue public will get them harassed despite the anonymity, I think they should have the option of keeping it private.

If I am missing something important, feel free to ignore or adjust my ideas. I just want this space to be safer for POC.
