They were all like "Hello fellow non-made up people" I was too lazy to use the meme like these chuckleheads were too lazy to talk to actual African-americans. I realize that I am being entirely too kind by assuming that *laziness* was the motive behind this tomfoolery.

Octavia E. Butler was a writer, a visionary, a genuine, certified genius, and also a community-minded activist who worked to make a place for people of color within the SFFH fan and writer communities. Help us celebrate her legacy & continue her work:

This is extraordinary: the Voice reporter who brought Brandon Teena’s story to a national audience re-opens her notebooks to correct her own (now acknowledged) anti-trans bias.

Just to clarify, since it’s easily misinterpreted (I did a touble-take): This is not proposing removing the randomElement method. It’s about removing the customization point that allows specific collections to customize its behavior.

I avoided this deliberately, Tony. I figure that painful breathing should shield you from such wordplay, at least for a month.

I read that as “cracked a rib laughing” on first glance and really wanted to hear the joke. Here’s to a swift recovery

I wish we had more control / power with `rethrows `. Things like “if my property throws, then I throw”

I guess my point is that, without some kind of understanding, it is hard to shake the suspicion that we are being played in situations like this because… we’ve been played so often

Forgiveness depends on trust of *something*. Without understanding enough to believe that someone sees me as human *at least*, what trust can I have in anything said? Mind you… I’m like, “yes. Come. Solidarity is welcome” But we’ve joined hands before and still, here we are.

Charleston officials voted yesterday to issue an apology for the city's role in slavery. But some say the resolution doesn't matter without accompanying steps forward, like improving economic and housing conditions.

They are now trying to get SCOTUS to legalize indefinite internment. They are now trying to get SCOTUS to legalize indefinite internment. They are hoping we will be distracted that they will keep families together (maybe) while INDEFINITELY INTERNED.

Perpetually skeptical of those who denounce Trump but lionize Raegan.

We really need to dig into this idea of deterring migrants from Central America from coming here, especially when we know what is happening in the countries that these folks are fleeing.

Yes. The challenge, for me, is that there are some people who I don’t think that I can *understand*, much less forgive. I understand a basic racism. It’s all around us. I permeates our culture. I can’t get past the barefaced antipathy on display more and more

I say all that and, at the same time, cannot help but say “HOW DID YOU NOT SEE THE BRIGHT LINE COMING EVER CLOSER? Marginalized people saw it and you ignored it and… how can we believe that we agree about the nature of your mistake?

How can I be so conflicted about this? Like… he is, in many ways, what I imagined republicans as until around a year ago . I disagree with his takes on things but–when it comes down to it–there is a limit to what is acceptable. A bright line that cannot be ignored.
