3) Will make a bot for MarciaMail but no actual interactions via fedi

4) i have an email address you can reach me at for other inquiries

It’s especially clear when white folks use it against Black users. I’ve seen your fav’s do it.
It’s giving clear anti blackness

anti black racism 

@dark_soil performance for micro online spaces where white anglos are a majority and the audience bc they have deeper pockets? IDK

bc hit dogs holler
bc Blk literature is avoided
bc thats how the Irish became white in America but no one wanna talk abt how they did that over Blk ppl despite a previous sense of solidarity

ppl are performing online & we're actually living our experience. i keep forgetting that

and tbh, calling that out? if thats what the meta is about which i think it is...

is not racist. If you were to read the literature of Black ppl, you would know that. but you erase Blk scholarship, Black ppl and Black subjectivity from any parts of your analysis

Not me tho, yall be easy in your poorly informed wahala LMAOOOO

🥰✌🏾

you know what voices i dont see in this meta?

Black folks.

I have a wonder why: A) theyre not out there enough as a target for ppl. And we thank god

b) we know that non black people of color depend on antiblackness to get ahead

Blk ppl on here have talked abt that over n over again. It's why BIPOC is an ever increasingly unpopular acronym

Its why Blk ppl i kno dont use PoC bc it blankets the experience.

Masks the antiblackness & racism from PoC using their race/ethnicity against Blk ppl

people ...

the fediverse isn't the place to have any kind of proper analysis on race (as a starter) not bc most of the users are white, but bc most of the users that are white have no concept of how whiteness works & have dont lil to no reading by Blk/NB PoC writers.

thats why yall trip up

So this thread from Twitter:

Like I was saying. Gender and whiteness? All wrapped up in one another.

Theorizing about gender only goes so far if you stop at interrogation of whiteness and the creation of what it means to be a human.

Wynter taught me

I didn’t expect so many responses to this tbh! So please excuse my not responding to them all. I won’t rb either just incase ppl dont want their business out there

But seeing yall talk abt the importance and accessibility of these sites makes me feel better abt basically being forced into it for many reasons

Money sucks, we dont get paid enough to afford this material and thats a problem discussed at length

Show thread

if youre a student, and willing to share, how crucial has pirating been to your ability to do the research you need to?

Show thread

i haven't really been on here in earnest so idk if the local timeline has had a conversation about how important or vital free resources have been for students during lockdowns across ... all over
with libraries closed and websites opening up for ppl (i.e. jstor) free/pirated books have become the back bone of research is a statement i am willing to bet on

LRB

Community tools like are here and used and now archived bc an Afro Indigenous femme and a woman got sick of ppl's shit

And we BARELY got any donations or support when we reminded ppl and asked to help us out
