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.

Hey,

Head's up.
If you want to recommend something to me, just mention it offhand and something you liked about it.

The more you push the more i'm NEVER EVER GOING TO READ IT.

Sorry. It's a brain thing.

This was absolutely inspired by @lawremipsum and @firewally 's levy sim. so, i'm glad @lawremipsum likes it.

tax sim - How do marginal tax rates work anyways?? 

The current custom bracket and rates are based on the 1948 rates using an inflation calculator and the actual rates according to files.taxfoundation.org/legacy

but you can change those numbers.

yeeterus updates 

It's still the first 2 weeks, and while i'm doing really well physically, i'm having some intense emotional volatility that i think is primarily hormone adjustments (we took out 1/2 ovaries) and pain response. Bright side, in low enough pain generally that forgetting to take meds for 8 hrs today hasn't been a huge issue. downside - large pain when i finally stopped hyperfocusing and huge frustration spike and crying.

hoping hormones even out a bit more soon.

hot politics opinion 

I mostly am incumbent skeptical, but if they are doing good work already, they should be re-elected even if somebody else running is slightly more aligned with my values bc institutional knowledge is actually valuable.
