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
[wyt folks out in front of Toronto’s main cop shop holding fishing lines made of broomsticks and twine, with what looks like Timmies glazed donuts dangling on the end
[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)
queerphobia, targeted harrassment, doxing, 4chan
IP and metadata collection links are being hidden as hyperlinks for protest and riot fundraisers and transition gofunds, please be conscious of what you click on tumblr if you're active on there at the moment. Hover over links or right click copy then and past into a text doc or url scanner to find the source.
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):
LibreOffice 6.4.4 has been released, with almost 100 bugfixes and compatibility improvements: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2020/05/21/libreoffice-644/
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 https://zellwk.com/blog/rem-vs-em/
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'

read a book
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
