Belated introduction 

Overt racism is low hanging fruit. It's easy to come out against blatant hate.

But there is a definite culture on the fedi of trying to 'instruct' Black folks on how we should be on the fedi and violent reactions if we don't agree.

There is a strong under current of trying to shape the Black experience that accessible to white folks and a hateful backlash is considered acceptable when we don't follow this myopia.

And this is rarely critiqued on the fedi, if ever.

idk about other POC heavy instances but myass doesn't want to just collect all the POC like they are pokemon

while i rejoice at new users - and lordt knows even we can always use a more and more diverse userbase - what i really want is there to be *more* inclusive spaces for poc on the fediverse because they damn well deserve it. fediverse can be very hostile to non-white users, especially when they are black, and honestly we need to make an active effort to fix this.

when rich people say someone will destroy the economy, they mean they are gonna destroy it for them. rich people are very dependent on the state to coerce people into generating obscene amounts of wealth for them

analysts: bernie would ruin the economy!!

me, being crushed by unaffordable housing, medicine, and student debt: ok

there is no way to compromise and form an economy that makes everyone happy, but that is fine because what makes rich people happy is usually things like murdering people to make money

nazis should be scared and hiding, because they know their beliefs are wrong or bad .

Workers, the most absolutely necessary part of the whole social structure, without whose services none can either eat, or clothe, or shelter himself, are just the ones who get the least to eat, to wear, and to be housed withal.

ICE AGENTS DESERVE NO PEACE. THEY GET TO GO HOME TO THEIR FAMILIES AT NIGHT. THEY CLOCK OUT AND GET TO ENJOY THEIR LIVES. THEY SHOULD BE IN AGONY
