My perspective for folk on Sunbeam City

"Sunbeam City,... Y'all have historically failed at properly respecting the intersections of Y'all's beliefs with the kyriarchy and it has led to a recreation of systemic privilege within Y'all's community

"I consider Myself, situationally, a member of Y'all's community... so it matters to Me what sort of community Y'all choose to be

1/n

tl;dr:

Sunbeam, close instance registration and off-site open an open discussion on your purpose as a community and call anyone who's interested to participate

Otherwise y'all are choosing to be complicit with bigotry and oppression and that ain't chill.

I think it’s cynical to talk about ‘oh im so happy that such and such space exist for POC/BP, you should go there”

Bc what does that say about the work you’re doing within your own space. Again, this kind of well intended commentary has been on here for ages its not new

I think im just finally fed up enough to be vocal abt what it means when we tokenize user experience to a point where we lose all nuance that we thought we had in the first place.

@showerpickles Curses... This one just pops into my head randomly and I go on a bent where it just repeats several times a day for weeks on end. At least this time there's provocation.

Like it's a good song, just not after the 25th time that week.
Another part of my brain must disagree...

ARENS: Are you now a member of the Communist Party?

ROBESON: Oh please, please, please.

SCHERER: Please answer, will you, Mr. Robeson?

ROBESON: What is the Communist Party? What do you mean by that?

SCHERER: I ask that you direct the witness to answer the question.

ROBESON: What do you mean by the Communist Party? As far as I know it is a legal party like the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. Do you mean a party of people who have sacrificed for my people, and for all Americans and workers, that they can live in dignity? Do you mean that party?

ARENS: Are you now a member of the Communist Party?

ROBESON: Would you like to come to the ballot box when I vote and take out the ballot and see?

ARENS: Now, during the course of the process in which you were applying for this passport, in July of 1954, were you requested to submit a non-Communist affidavit?

ROBESON: We had a long discussion—with my counsel, who is in the room, Mr. [Leonard B.] Boudin—with the State Department, about just such an affidavit and I was very precise not only in the application but with the State Department, headed by Mr. Henderson and Mr. McLeod, that under no conditions would I think of signing any such affidavit, that it is a complete contradiction of the rights of American citizens.

ARENS: Did you comply with the requests?

ROBESON: I certainly did not and I will not.

Answer, probably that I was raised white in Arizona.

we got 5 new people at FNB this week! including people who are willing to talk to strangers! which means that we should actually be able to stay this thing, cause we'd been in a bit of a holding pattern 😅

@return_0 That's great! I'm in the same boat with municipal services/lack thereof. I hope over time it becomes more of a social norm to compost and garden as communities

@lj This made me learn about the make soil movement which looks really good and since there isn't a municipal service for this where I live it's really important too.
