Me: "Yo! I was reading up on $tech last weekend, we can totally use it in the codebase and it'll be sweet"
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?
Hey folx! It's #reintroduction 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.
Korean 3rd mix v2 is mine
You know I'm right.
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.
'Candy' is 100% on the list
