"Watch the intersection" means to be or become aware of how all your identities impact who you are in a space and how you affect others. This was painful to read.

You are rarely a single piece of your greater self in a space.

I love how Americans will tell non-americans they can't have an opinion about America, but America has disrupted HUNDREDS of other governments in the last century just so American businesses make more money.

Get fucked. Really :)

If you're inwardly carving out space right now between yourself and the angry, defensive, unaware one, that puts you at the same end of the field as he is. The desire, need and mandate to never be uncomfortable, disagreed with or perceived as less than awesome has no levels. It's work to be done.

Every time you frame yourself as the victim in a dispute.

Pause.

Ask if you need to assert your authority as a white person, or man, or other privileged person, in this moment. Ask why you cannot and must not ever accommodate another. In a world that so deeply accommodates you.

To make it clearer, if you start posting "timeline cleanses" in the midst of #BLM posts or difficult political discussions, reconsider how that lands on the people who can't decide not to be affected by awful stuff for a few minutes.

When others' spouts sometimes make it to my timeline, I'm reminded there are whole communities who log out of thoughts of injustice and oppression as a choice for comfort.

While we appreciate the song, Kevin, we'd also prefer people don't tag us on political comments. We try to give people a short respite from those things. Thank you.

Republicans aren't supporting Trump DESPITE his indictments and cognitive decline. A core cultural value of whiteness is not having to abide by rules. They WANT to elect a convicted felon to the Presidency.

(It's not a "Republican" thing either. Watch how the same behavior shows up here every day.)

This is what we keep talking about, and it's not okay. Stop. Doing. This.

And when you do, fix it.

Everyone's pointing at the "other" folks who need to fix themselves.

Fix. This.

Listen all the way through. Then don't clap or ask more of her, SPEAK HARD TRUTHS YOURSELF. This is not the year of kindness and comfort - it is yet another year of saying what needs to be said because the stakes, for hundreds of years now, remain high because white supremacy has no off switch.

The danger in this headline isn't the single, deranged fascist or his evil followers.

The danger is YOU if you read this with concern for others because you think you'll personally be okay if he wins.

If it's helpful to anyone, because I speak to this regularly in my strategy work, the awesome first response here is "Yes." Make the first answer to a Yes or No question "Yes" or "No." Otherwise, people assume you didn't hear/understand or are ignoring them and repeat until acknowledged.

Claudine Gay supported Harvard's Jewish students, decried the October attacks and addressed the crisis in Gaza multiple times.

She was not found to have committed plagiarism.

She did not step down for having plagiarized but due to repeat, false accusations regarding both of the above.

I just watched The Color Purple (2023) and wrote a long thread - what an experience! The thread wouldn't publish, so adding my screengrab of my many thoughts here.

This might be a little more serious than I usually am on Spoutible. But from what I have seen over the months as the community has built up, it seems safe enough to me to discuss something rather personal.

This 60-sec video could change or save a life. Adding next steps from earlier COVID campaigns: 1) contact them separately (e.g., call/text); 2) don't call 911 etc without checking wtih them.

I wrote down and verbally agreed with what my friend would say to help pave and confirm an escape alibi later.

I appreciate the simplicity and focus of this spout.

I also recognize how big a shift this would be for some, because cultural training assigns a default, unquestioned and uncontestable mantle of innocence, expertise and authority in any space.

To shift from that self-image to this is real work.

THIS. I easily say this once a month. It happened to Black people yesterday, it'll happen tomorrow, and you probably were the perpetrator one of those times. The difference is: 1) when you do it to us, we challenge it, and 2) when we do, you call that an "over-reaction."

Until it happens to you.
"PROTECT BLACK WOMEN!" - yeah right @Original_Phoenix_Rising
If you're a non Black marginalised person & can't discuss your experiences without saying "if it happened to a Black person...", you're an anti Black racist. Especially when it's usually something that DOES happen to Black people, & they're also part of your marginalised group.

I'd say, keep the tag and when followers see trolls, they reply, report or block, based on content, and keep enjoying their tunes. Benefits outweigh the irritants. Otherwise, trolls successfully disrupt a community experience.

If the content doesn't warrant a ban, does it warrant ending the tag?
SpoutingClassics™️ @SpoutingClassics
Popular splashtags, like #SpoutingClassics , have provided a way for "troll style" accounts to target communities on #Spoutible .

As a result, this account will no longer promote any splashtags. It’s our way to ensure we don’t unintentionally provide them a stage where they aren’t welcome.

If your greatest triggers in left political discourse are not being depicted as well-meaning in thought, Liz Cheney not being acknowledged for decrying Trump, and non-whites not explicitly exempting you and others when confronting white culture...

If that's your focus as we face Nov 2024...

@DrBlackDeer , you posted something today that spoke directly to my heavy heart and soul:

"If I never hear the word savage again, it would be too soon."

Thank you for this. I also disengage immediately.

I was grateful to connect to something and someone in the steady sea of dehumanization.

Person saying it: I am demonstrating my independence, integrity and high standards.

Me hearing it: they're demonstrating both their impenetrable sense of exceptionalism (as in, I won't be affected, so this can be theoretical for me) and whom they deem expendable in order to retain that self image.
