Ive been going pretty hard on my quest to be the black StartBootstrap.

If you wanna stay abreast of my latest work, I post updates on my Ko-Fi page quite a bit ko-fi.com/somarasu

And if you wanna help me buy the ramen noodles that power these templates, that's always appreciated (but never obligated) cash.me/somarasu

Love you all!

Me: "Yo! I was reading up on $tech last weekend, we can totally use it in the codebase and it'll be sweet"

Everyone: *crickets*

*months later*

Cunt Exec: So what's this i hear about $tech?

Buddy (white guy #1): Yeah you should talk to Soma about it, i think he knows the most about it out of all of us.

Cunt Exec: *looks at me* ... white guy #2, can you look into this?

Me: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun:

Hey folx! It's time!

My name is Soma, your friendly black neighborhood demiman. They/them pronouns, but he/him is no biggie. Im a cyclist, a front-end developer, an ancom, and just an all-around pain in the ass to white people everywhere (well, most anyway).

Hi new followers! 

I just know that whenever im in a Panera i feel like I oughta not be there.

And asian college students.

Maybe that's just my local but it's a pretty even split.

'Panera Bread' is just 'Waffle House' for white college students

"Waffle House" is more an experience than it is a restaurant

Gods bless the HR lady for trying to make company events "fun"

Do React devs *actually* use JSX?

B/c that just sounds...not fun.

@mwlucas Granted i added the latter bit: the actual term is 'seeing-eye black friend' but i just had to make it my own 😂

the phrase 'seeing-eye negro' is a staple for me and you've all got @mwlucas to blame

I mean, seriously: has a majority-group of white people EVER steered us wrong?

A board of 90+ people, less than 1% of whom are black??

I couldnt fathom them *NOT* having my best interest at heart.

What some psychologists call 'anti-social behavioral disorder', I call "suffering white folks' ridiculousness as much as they suffer my existence"

Me: man, how come white people are such dicks to black and brown people?

"""Good""" white person: yeah we're terrible.

Me: Gee if you were any more blasé I could almost pretend nothing's wrong!

Granted, the two arent mutually exclusive.

But i'd argue that the former is *HEAVILY FUCKING INSPIRED* by the latter.

That's just my take.

Either white people love re-discovering the invention of the wheel (big difference from "re-inventing the wheel" please pay the fuck attention),

or,

White people dont listen to their black colleagues.

One of my favorite things about workplace racism is pitching a good idea, only to have my white colleagues """mull it over""" (i.e.: "we dont believe this negro so we're gonna do the research holistically until we come to the same conclusion") and come to the same conclusion I did a fucking FORTNIGHT PRIOR.

Reactgate is a one-two punch of:
A) me being right about STEM being 'white as all fuck, and

B) me being right about Vue's superiority
