Something important about racism on Mastodon: Show more
If you make a racist joke "ironically", and you can "see how that could be taken as offensive", it's racist and you should pack that shit in immediately.
I've had one friend leave here because of this.

He sat at one of the tables in the small, empty restaurant, listening to the coffee machine slowly fill the pot. No other sound could be heard but the tick of the clock and the occasional car on the street outside. Someone rattled the door, trying to get in. Charlie glanced over, seeing if it was someone he knew. Nope.
