And white people being white people turned around and proved exactly what Tatiana Mac was talking about.

I got two free dinners out of it wasn’t all bad. That restaurant had a high turnover for some reason so I didn’t often see the same staff twice there.

This happens to me a lot. One time I went to a restaurant on my way home form a the grocery store I just wanted to order a bowl of chilli to go. It wouldn’t have taken more than a few min to order and get my order and leave. The hostess completely ignored me. I walked in and she walked away. She came back then walked Read more

Yeah. Lincoln freed the slaves, MLK got the rest done and Hitler’s dead so everything’s fine now, yay America. Though I’m neither a boomer or a consumer of Fox news, I’ve had to unlearn all of that (and more) as well. TBH, I’m still learning.

Yup. This shit, all the time. Most egregious in recent memory: WW comes up to the porch of my apartment (a house made into apartments) & talks on and on about how it’s the house she grew up in, gets irritated when I don’t want to give her a tour then asks, “What are you doing here?” Read more

Literally had a conversation in the car with my 62 yr old mother an hour ago about how “Civil Rights isn’t over” as she was under the white boomer Fox-News-watching impression that racism and antisemitism were things of the past.

I recognize that we humans maneuver space like cars in traffic weaving in and out, taking shortcuts, but too often, white people walk dead straight ahead expecting others to yield to them and give the right of way and it’s obnoxious. I've even tried standing dead still looking them in the eye and they will brush up Read more

It’s times like these (as detailed just above) that makes we wish we lived in a different time-line; one wherein all one needed would be a light-saber, or even a decent blaster; yes, a blaster will do just fine. Folks give you static, you give them a little heat; situation resolved. Now I suggest you get me that Read more

Some people are trying to keep it alive with the discord and then there’s the subreddits and whatnot, but everyone is so spread out and engagement is down. It’s so nervy right now.

It is boundary breaching and it doesn’t matter how many times we ask, they just are not going to listen. It reminds us that despite the care we’re providing for my grandmother, we’re still just guests here and have no rights to our time and space. Depending on how The Appointment goes this could be over as soon as a Read more

Wow. I have a lot I would say but I don’t have your life so I’ll do my best to hold my tongue.
I’m with Fish Copernicus ,though. That feels like a whooooole looooot of boundary breaching.

Honestly, I was planning on watching the show. I just couldn’t on premiere night because other shows are on. But now, I have to put the show on hold for a minute. I noticed my entire timeline talking about this scene in real time, and being from the city, I just don’t want to watch it right now. Since it’s HBO, I’m Read more

Of course Tulsa isn’t the only Southern town in which black folk thrived and then white folk did their best to destroy their flourishing; when I was reading about this again last night there was a segment on a North Carolina town that was growing much like Tulsa and then they built a road through it.

I think what you’re doing is perfect and I would also like to see a few articles discussed more at length with minority lens. We really don’t get that too often. I’ve seen TSB community do it countless times. I’m suggesting that we make it more of a feature.  

This is something I’m also planning on doing so I can hone Read more
