haha yes I love "doing work", and also "being productive"!! It's the best!

*my boss walks away*

ok who wants to guess how many paper clips I can fit in my mouth

wow i hope that this blizzard protest news doesn't kick up a bunch of gamer racism towards the chinese instead of the government or the company (this happens almost instantly) oh no oh god

Blizzard banned a Hearthstone player for pro-Hong Kong statements, so HK protestors are appropriating Mei (from Overwatch) as a symbol of the free Hong Kong movement.

This is, sources say, my shit

Github has a $200,000 contract with ICE that they just renewed.

pol, Extinction Rebellion, activism 

I like Extinction Rebellion's idea as a whole, but their pacifist tactics leave a lot to be desired.

When your lives are on the line, standing by while they kill/arrest your fellow citizens is just a waste of time and resources. The legal fees alone will drain their coffers in no time.

We need more active resistance. Our lives literally depend on foregoing inaction in favor of actual action.

anyone know of a paper or book that looks at heidegger/ardent from a black studies perspective?

i have a caribbean phil. book but i aint see something that is a bit more critical of said authors.

ill be doing a search today for it, but thought i would ask on the off chance someone here knows

I have country roads stuck in my head but instead of West Virginia it’s about Aberystwyth and also the singer is screaming it horribly out of tune as though they were in great pain?

so Kim Goat and I met these fucking cool scientists who were giving like actual 101 lectures on climate science, why the change is bad, how it's more than just the polar ice caps melting. and omg I loved what they were doing so much

so, we volunteered to help them move their tents where all their equipment and displays were. the tents had these big metal weights and Kim and I carried one between us, they were heavy as shit yo. so we heard more cop cars coming in to cause a problem and Kim said "well, we've got something to put through their window" and I said "I was more thinking through their skull" not realising one of the middle class white people from XR was who was helping us was listening in and said "oh no" don't do that"

US fascism + ICE, call to action 

Never Again ATL, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite antifascist groups, is now offering free career counseling and job search support to ICE workers looking to quit

The site isn't underhanded or accusatory in any way, which I think is important. As awful as it is, there are absolutely ICE workers out there who are just working a job they hate because they have to get by, who don't see a way out. It's in everyone's best interest to help them act on their conscience and walk away

Never Again ATL is calling for a day of repentance on Yom Kippur (from sundown today, 10/8/19, to sundown tomorrow, 10/9/19) and a wave of workers quitting ICE. Please spread this link in whatever channels you have. Put up flyers, spray it on the side of detention centers and ICE offices, email it to random people on LinkedIn with ICE listed as their current employer - whatever you can do

Thread by AOC: "I know the term “prison abolition” is breaking some people’s brains. The right is already freaking out. Yet the US incarcerates more than an […]"

@blkstarseed privilege makes a lot of people entrenched in their beliefs and entitled to a direct explaination, some of them literally don't understand thing can be bad for people on a systemic level because it's ok for them. like you said, shut the fuck up and listen, it's free

reading, listening, and shutting up are 100% free

but y'all white people stay making frivolous life choices and expecting PoCs to pay the price as you "unpack your white fragility" and other nonsense

positive subtoot 

God bless all you people who live in countries that aren't English-speaking but are able to speak English with me because I get a lot of value from that and can't reciprocate by presenting my ideas in y'all's languages.

Sorry, but thanks! So much!
