There's a lack of ethical engagement on here and I think it occurs because of several reasons, but none outweight the negative

Personal notice 

Any sign of the same nonsense I've endured on PV will have me delete this account with no questions asked fast.

I am professional scholar and artist, and I take my work seriously enough to no longer make space for the bs.

I will NOT take the abuse with grace as I've done for nearly 3 yrs.
I'm here to learn and to educate. BC that is literally my job.

Now lets go

WHite ppl, we don't need to be reminded about 'not all'

we've been there

:let it gooo:

USPol, Race, General Meta? 

Also IDC what having a mixed race woman in office does for ppl either.

Optics, representation politics..Reminds me of when Hamilton discourse got hot again here & twitter. LMM is white, the show is weird & revisionist, H owned slaves. But nb-PoC were salivating at the mouth abt, girl I guess.

Revisionism: antiblackness & erasure is a currency, peep how many ppl are talking abt Blk folks but were the ones at fault for Blk ppl leaving. Revisionism.

Ppl dont care

USPol, Race, General Meta? 

I am not looking forward to ppl trying to criticize Harris without being racist about it. It happens & ppl be out here making me want to defend a cop bc ppl can't help but be white thru their analysis

And someone might roll their eyes at this & gone ahead, but if you cant be critical wo being fatphobic, ableist or antiblack then I dont think your analysis is worth it

My tweet on jlo not being the puerto rican representation we asked for on twitter is going off

q boba

when ppl upload voice bits on here, what are yall using?

And that's it. The White House sees the back of Melania and Donald Trump"

Good Morning
If you use & want to help support the Afro-Indigenous femme that started it you can either donate to my liberapay, or sign up to my DIY content subscription service, all links on my profile. Don't erase me from my work.

@gingerrroot helped worked to get that tag off the ground, help her out too.

Stop erasing femmes from their community efforts on here, esp the ones of color who have been here for yrs at this point.

something that WP are always missing from their analysis when they [mis]use intersectionality is their..whiteness. It's often a footnote. "i'm at several intersections" .. we all are, thats not novel.

But if you dont include your whiteness as part of your initial analysis, its not being done correctly. What I see is WP using intersectionality & putting their whiteness to the side, which intersectionality was never meant to do in the first place.

"Anzaldúa’s work romanticizes indigeneity and erases any possibility of an Afro-Indigenous subject that does not center whiteness. To be mestiza is also a political choice that is not afforded to Indigenous and Black Latinas. Fanon’s work makes tremendous strides in transformative phenomenology, to understand the psychology and the experience of the “I” that is Black, but also silences women by pathologizing their choices under gendered racism and anti-blackness."

" “The mestizo and the queer exist at this time and point on the evolutionary continuum for a purpose. We are a blending that proves that all blood is intricately woven together, and that we are spawned out of similar souls.” (Anzaldúa, 85, 1986) Most importantly, I ask questions about her need to utilize casta, colonial race science and the mechanisms of nation state identity building (post-independence) in order to create a heuristic of resistance; fundamentally, is it possible to do so?"

Meta, resolution, ideas? 

I'm thinking about @bees @honey.town thread (chef 😙) on meta discourse on the fedi

This place is not well, hasn't been for a time, so I've been wondering about what next steps this place can actually take

I mentioned to bees accountability, Humility and patience... Altho im low on patience.
Ppl need to make hard choices & realize an error doesn't make you bad. It's OK
