Also white folks need to realize that Black folks will react to shit like this differently

some Black folks (like myself) don't mind friends and stuff checking in and seeing if i do well, that shit makes my day at least 40% better

what i DON'T want is a flyby inspirational "you matter" message because I've heard it a lot and honestly at this point its so tiring.

i'm thousands of miles away from all this shit, the most i'm worried about is irresponsible white folks not WEARING FUCKING MASKS

also delicious:

[they are dangling the bait in front of a bunch of bicycle cops who are standing behind their parked bikes

[at least one cop [second pic, close-up] looks like he’s about to completely lose his shit]

Wether you're gay, straight, bi or somewhere we don't have label for yet, you really should read about the Stonewall Riots.

Get out there and have fucking fun, but remember where you are now was paid for in blood.

Respect that history. The whole history.

3. Criticising a person of color for a bad behavior is valid. ONLY criticizing people of color for said bad behavior is racist. Why don't you call out bad actors who are white? Did you not notice? Does it feel more acceptable? Less aggressive? Think about and reflect on why Person A's actions feel "not as bad" as Person B's. If you cannot articulate it, it might be prejudice.

queerphobia, targeted harrassment, doxing, 4chan 

Obvious percusions to take. Turn off asks on tumblr, or at least anons. Turn off DMs for non mutuals on Twitter. Don't click on links that aren't from trusted sources or haven't been checked. Tell minors and trans mutuals what's happening if you can. Lock your accounts of your a minor or a trans man on tumblr/trans woman on twitter (would be safe and lock accounts on both regardless of gender, attacks likely to get more diverse as pride progresses)

Black Protests 😠 white Nonsense 

So. We need to straighten out a few things. I was following the protests on Twitter all night last night, and noticed two recurring themes.

The first is that a lot of Black protestors have been talking about how their protests were peaceful until a bunch of white people showed up and started wrecking shit.

Apparently, Black organisers have had to ask white protestors to calm down, and some Black protestors have had to put out literal fires which white people started.

We all know who gets the blame in these things. We all know who faces the harsh consequences and who gets to walk home without much hassle.

There are a bunch of reports of this stuff in a thread by @[email protected] (I trust him as a reliable source):

This was my Windows 95 desktop wallpaper for a very long time. It was one of the most beautiful calming things to me age 13 or so.

Looks like microsoft is trying to make a whole alternative GUI stack on Linux that only works when running as a VM under Hyper-V...

Mistakes I made with CSS that I have learned the hard way:

- not using `box-sizing: border-box` everywhere. It really is a way more sensible default
- using px and em instead of rem. rems make way more sense zellwk.com/blog/rem-vs-em/

Hi

Stop framing the USA as the singular point of police terror against Blk ppl, particularly saying 'its the only western country w such a problem'
a blk british man was tazed in front of his child & i promise you that left a mark on that baby. its on video.

I know a lot of ppl want to pretend their countries don't have an issue w antiblackness and police terrorizing blk communities bc yalls police dont have guns or whatever but i'm here to tell you, you're wrong.

You default to sarcasm (or helplessness) because to actually tap into your felt-sense would functionally unravel your world

if you actually spent time thinking about the fabric of an anti-black world

how deep it runs

how insidious it is

you would be undone
