I find it hilarious how Lambda School tries to low-key flex how """diverse""" the student body is while doing fuck all to prepare anyone for the daily racism that's gonna be headed their way.

Not a lot of use for announcements on a single user instance, so I just left myself a message in the form of an announcement in case I forget once in a while.
