Decolonizing my White Brain: A thread for white folk
This thread is for myself and other white folk to share things we read and ways we can confront and deal with our Whiteness and work towards Anti-Racism.
I am white. I was raised to be racist by my white parents. I am trying to be anti-racist. I'm gonna fail sometimes. This thread is for me to connect with myself and other white folk to read work by Black authors and activists and work on our shit.
FYI: i joke about and much like other leftists.
But actual premeditated violence or murderous intent makes me deeply uncomfortable bc I've been to that place and hate it. So uhh. Not on my TL plz/I may trust you less. And if you think there isn't a difference between self defense and premeditated "self defense" plz think again.
In conclusion: punch don't kill nazis.
I have some more followers now and have mostly settled into my mastodon self.
Generally I post about #uspol , #mnpol , #localpol regarding the MSP area, #zoning and #urbanism , #socialism but from a pro-market and pro federation of peoples/larger groups are fine actually perspective and mental health stuff about #adhd #anxiety and #arfid or #pickiness with food and sensory issues.
Sometimes there are dog pics and home renovation stuff. Enjoy!
uspol, news, happy
dear friends, we have taken the Senate. Wonder who's gonna take Mitch's old job. ^_^
re: phimby stuff
@britvulcan One specific instance where this philosophy has failed is in San Francisco. On one side, there are the home owners who profit massively from the catastrophic housing supply problem there and lobby intensely against any housing at all being built, and then there's what is ostensibly the liberal wing of the city's political structure, which demands that any new housing must have as much public/affordable housing as possible included.
While ostensibly ideologically opposed, the two political blocs combine to completely stall any development whatsoever, driving cost of housing ever upwards.
@ewankeep Anyways, rhetorically, shoot for the god-damned moon, but agree to go to orbit. Then keep pushing for why the moon is good and we should go. If you can't make it to the moon on the first shot, don't eat your allies that want to go to orbit or you'll be staying on the ground forever.
reasons why this socialist doesn't go to dsa meetings
building coalitions with people who don't agree with you 100% in order to achieve policy goals is good actually.
also i'm a yimby and apparently acknowledging that legalizing more housing means supply might go up and prices might go down is not enough even tho i also want social housing, but don't think phimby-ism will help our current, present, and pressing housing issues because the federal govt has rules/ no$ for building social homes.
4am again I see brain, I see.
I'm just bad at time and also not blurting out things I'm excited about ok
Webcomics, that cute gay shit
Bloomers the dog, gross, intestinal parasites, dogs are omnivores
sometimes dogs hunt and reduce the surplus bunny/vole/mouse population. It happens. *shrug*
sometimes those animals have worms and give the worms to the puppo.
hopefully the dog won't give us worms. sigh.
