if you're a leftist you probably understand how liberals who are complicit and compromising in Conservative Bullshit are basically part of the problem right?
so if you're on this webbed sight right now and you say "i don't wanna deal with 'the drama' i just wanna be gay" etc then seriously fucking check yourself
you're either anti-racist or part of the problem. i don't wanna see this shit on my TL
@haskal I just genuinely lack the mental fortitude to involve myself in these things, especially as frequent as they are
Yes. Mint, a BIPOC, had to leave very recently because someone was using blackface, and all the white people around didn't say or do anything. Mint filed a report, the report got closed, people only stepped in and did something once Mint had left after having to deal with situations like this over and over.
You see, for BIPOC in our community, your "some people can't check racism when they see it" and "for some reason thinking `You must do anti-racist stuff or you're bad` isn't true" ideas mean that they are the ones who have to deal with the racists, because the sea of techie trans girls and middle class white folk here have decided it's not their responsibility as white folk to check racism around them when they see it when it ABSOLUTELY is.
