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).

I'd have zero idea it still happens to me if I didn't have great friends.

It's nice to know that in the year 2021, black people STILL get shitty looks from white people in majority-white spaces. 😂

What's your favorite version of DDR (home or arcade)?

420; alcohol 

Capitalism would be badass if it weren't created and ran by white people

You ever just go from mocking 'sportball' to being a casual fan of all sportballs?

Unless it's me; then you're on the right track half the time

I'd extend this to follows to: following/RTing black people doesn't make you anti-racist, either.

This is just my own gripe, so take it from it what you will. It's not even an admonishment of fake allies, just more of a "dont think you're an ally just because you read and shared a book from a black author" (which i see a lot )

And this is a problem when it comes to white people trying to be anti-black/anti-racist: most of the time, they think that their behavior towards black people is the only problem.

Being nice to black people isn't anti-racism

I always have to remind people in my life: "I'm not a liberal; I'm a leftist"

My requests as far as reparations go are incredibly specific, it isnt just cash

If all cops are bastards then that means MPs are super bastards
