You're here on your edgy open source software living a scripted ass life talmabout 'i DoNT WanNA hEAr AbOUT PoliTIcs"

Guess what? We live and bleed the consequences of politics. Yours just allows you to be willfully ignorant of what politics are and die peacefully whilst the rest of us bury our family years before they should've passed. Bc of the state, bc of colonialism, bc of genocide. You benefit off our death.

That's why no one rates you

"I know racism is a thing, but I also thought it wasn't that bad until social media got really big, and now I know I've been living under a rock and I feel some type of way"

That's what happens when you only surround yourself with white friends. Can also be straight friends.

That bubble that you use to 'protect' yourselves is THIN my dude, and it won't take much to burst that shit bc reality ain't gonna stop for you

I'm not seeing any toots from ppl complaining that we're talking abt politics #onhere but the fact of the matter is, I totally believe that it is happening somewhere right now.

Every time I watch "This Is America" I find a new way to be uncomfortable with the content, and I'm pretty sure that's the point.

A big thank you to @Curator, @moritzheiber and @damien for the logo contest pledges!

I mis-read damiens pledge towards an emojii, so I will match that so we can put $50 towards an emoji while not affecting the prize amounts!

Winter temperatures in Alliance, Nebraska can drop to -20°F (the record low is -40°F/C), but retired mailman Russ Finch grows oranges in his backyard greenhouse without paying for heat. Instead, he draws on the earth's stable temperature (around 52 degrees in his region) to grow warm weather produce- citrus, figs, pomegranates - in the snow.
