Gonna take a new position and say: urban life and rural life are the same thing these days and most rural communities are just really spread out tiny cities, in how they function.

@Bashabez @ArtistMarciaX Perhaps not my place to comment but otherwise it seems like these people aim to tokenize their identity for political and social clout that they don't actually have substantive claims to, yeah? Whiteness definitely comprises part of the problem here, but certainly Warren's lack of a history in indigenous/tribal activism worries me.

In addition to My Finest Work Yet by Andrew Bird, I'm gonna advocate I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning by Bright Eyes as "comfortable music for white people to get more comfortable criticizing their life."

One must imagine Sisyphus fortnite emoting

I can't believe I'm going to write this bc it feels like tumblr twitter all over again but ::deepbreath::

Latine is not a race.
Do not racialized Spanish.
There are Latines that are Indigenous and don't speak a like of Spanish.
There are AfroLatines
There are white Latines.

Being a white Latine doesn't erase Latinidad bc it is ethnic, it is C U L T U R A L & GEOGRAPHIC

The emotional impact of white people's juvenile taunts and attempts to demonize my name pales in comparison to the messages I get from Black and Brown folks who recognize what I'm trying to do and affirm my continuous efforts to bring about an authentic community that affirms and protects them.

There will never be a moment where I get tired of creating better online spaces for them.

@Are0h Aye. The incensing of the dominant group has always provided a compass for the visionaries of liberation.

Remember your AEIOUs:

Agitate against your employer

Educate coworkers on the cause of their strife (y'all's mutual employer)

Inoculate them against the risks of resistance (bosses bite back!)

Organize for mutual protection against those risks

Unionize to act for y'all's own best interests.

@cypnk That said, congrats on moving forward and hosting your own email. Dovecot+Postfix+Roundcube+SA make email a truly lovely experience. More people should really do it.

That said if using SA, use a DB backend. Filebackend is a bit twitchy.


Hey, techbros! Repeat after me...


For those of you who run mastodon 3.0+ and wanna make it way more difficult for scrapers, enable auth fetches and disable anonymous access to the public tl

You know what infuriates me (one of many)? That primary school history courses in the United States often still attempt to justify the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Can we not even show the slightest remorse for different cultures overseas? From youth, the US trains people to adopt nationalistic perspectives on the rest of the living world. God knows how many adults today need to unlearn that shit.

Anti-Indigenous racism.

Almost six million posts from 363 instances have been scraped.

"All the posts with public visibility published by users hosted on Mastodon servers [...] which support the English language" have been scraped along with their metadata, and the "policy, the code of conduct and the prohibited contents of each instance".

The dataset is an attempt at creating an open dataset for "research" into algorithms like the ones Facebook uses to identify problematic content, based around users' use of Content Warnings.
