Hey, white people: Have you recently been called out on the topic of race? Or perhaps you saw it and felt the person being called out was being treated unfairly? Maybe you've seen some questionable replies but not known what to say or felt scared to speak up? Huddle up, we've got things to learn!

I'm going to address two types of progressive white people who have a community of voices on this platform. I'm not anybody special, just a Geriatric Millennial who grew up middle class in a white suburb of Cincinnati and attended PWIs for my entire education. I know yt supremacy intimately.

Hey everyone! If you want to try the best space exploration game (IMO), #NoMansSky is free to play again this weekend!

It's available on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Mac, and Switch.

If you have any questions or run into problems inside the game, just give me a shout. I'm happy to help new Travelers!

I finally found the picture of proof - my parents attended a dinner with Henry Kissinger and here's a fun story to go along with it.

Sorry I got distracted by work of all things.

I was a barber in the Navy. I was on a small ship (crew of about 400). It was a one man chair barbershop. Just me. So I got to know pretty much everyone on board. I even cut the Captain and XO's hair.
Whoa!™️ @Whoa
Oh man. Banana bread is my favorite and I don't have any. I do have a great story about banana bread, though.

Presumably because it masks the flavour of American cheese.

The correct way to eat cereal is put the milk in bowl first and then the cereal a bit at a time so it doesn't get soggy. Any other way is just pure nonsense. BTW, this is fun!

although the first recorded use of this hashtag is february 13th it was ami's incorrect but uncompromising mayonnaise opinion that catapulted #SpoutingNonsense into wide use in 2023.
Ami Berger @AmiBerger
RESOLVED: we need more nonsense on this site. Post your dumbest, most trivial, most controversial take on anything but politics or Spoutible itself. #SpoutingNonsense

Mine: mayonnaise is disgusting glop and anyone who likes it is a Philistine with no taste buds.

I just want to say that Jo-Ann fabrics may have the most helpful staff of any retail store. Just top notch in all locations. Like I want them to open a coffee shop in the store so I can just hang out, bring my sewing machine instead of my laptop, get advice from experts and sew for hours.

Most Thursday nights I walk to my neighbor's house (who I've know since preschool). He, I, & another friend (drums, keyboard, guitar) jam for a few hours, drink beer, they toke, & we solve the worlds problems. So blessed to have this. But we miss our bass player (left), gone from this world. 💔

Grab a nice, hot beverage and read these inspiring stories. No matter how hard the white nationalist GOP tries to stop us, never. stop. learning. This history belongs to ALL of us. Black history IS American history💡📚📚📚

The right manager could literally change your life. You'll go from confusion, invalidation, and broken processes to a whole new world. And let's not even talk about the mental benefits of working for someone who truly sees and values you.

I read the spoilers. It was Jack, I had to. I'll watch the episode either tonight or tomorrow. I'm satisfied with what I read. I wish I could express how much I love him and will miss him. Maybe I'll write an essay.

Heartbreakingly relevant. Devastatingly relevant. It's awash with highlights that could have been written this week.

And perhaps the most soul-rending: When he quoted W.E.B. Du Bois, 60 years on. 120 years on, STILL RELEVANT.

Had we grown, this would feel like a relic. #FireNextTime⬇️ #SBBC

"The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked but only that they be spineless."

This will forever be timeless.

It was this quote that sprang immediately to mind with the hearing on DA Fani Willis' "misconduct."

Both a warning and a prediction, and here we are in the 21st century and a Black woman IS ON TRIAL bc she was doing her job too well. As if she must be cheating somehow.

Does this still apply today? How?

“It was another fear, a fear that the child, in challenging the white world’s assumptions, was putting himself in the path of destruction.” (p. 27)

Once again, I found myself despairing at how little had changed.

The need to be "better" than others and the idea that it can happen just by "being," just by accidents of geography and concentrations of melanin, is a kind of a rejection of the world itself.

In response Spoutible Banned Book Club to their Spout
How can there be American exceptionalism when all of its residents were not allowed to participate? Instead mediocre groups were lauded to the status of exceptional. That created a false identity that crumbles when the playing field is broadened and full participation is encouraged. #FireNextTime
