Without black people being harassed we probably wouldnʼt have soul and hip hop music. But Iʼd choose a life without these genres than one where people get harassed.

Thanks to @nextcloud and @CollaboraOffice me and my family almost finished with the process. Itʼs only their mail service that i somehow need to get rid of, but iʼm already working on it.

This is a Google Doc that has been compiled by several people with links to resources for white parents to raise anti-racist children, articles and books to read, film / tv / videos to watch, podcasts, and organizations to follow and/or support. There are more resource links at the end as well. This document is for everyone, not just parents.

If you haven’t engaged in anti-racism work in the past, start now.

Letʼs finally realise that this is not just a problem of the US. - 2/2

Show thread

If you live outside the US and your national (or even the commercial) news media is silent about the US riots (and they shouldnʼt. if nothing more than because the US is a so called “world power”). itʼs probably time to start a Riot in your country. too.
Even if your country doesnʼt have a “black problem”. it most probably has “some non-white problem”. “LGBTQ+ problem”. “woman problem”. or pretty much any “minority/marginalised problem”.

Facebook engineer's resignation letter

Family evening chit-chat without context:

“Do you really have to dress together with the goat?”

My son (3) found his sisterʼs nail polish and painted his nails and toenails red. Now he looks and feels awesome.

Rant about money and early retirees 

Itʼs funny how almost every early retirement story begins like “I did it, so can you” and continues like “i had a six figure job, […] got two 10% raises, […] got promoted.” No, not everyone can get a six figure job. If we could, the money of “early retirees” wouldnʼt worth much. Also, your sx figure salary probably should have gone to the people who worked much harder than you at the same company.

My daughter (6, very extroverted), late in the evening: yeah, itʼs kindergarten tomorrow!
Some girl, early next morning: Daaad, iʼm sleepy, let me sleep.

Teenage years start earlier with todayʼs kids…

Some freshly picked cats, maybe?

There were no boxes around so Luca (Hungarian, pron. ~ Lootsa), our tortoiseshell companion chose the fruit basket. She didnʼt like when we tried to put the lid on, though.

asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed 

does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

Hey Fedi IT folks, please suggest me a new motherboard. I use Linux exclusively, mostly for work, and occasionally for work. I prefer open everything, but donʼt necessary mind closed source firmware if it works fine.

that indian guy saying he didnt care if his restaurant burned down because you can rebuild it but you cant rebuild a human life is king shit

TFW you debug why your nginx serves content of a different domain for hours, and you realise you forgot to add the .conf extension to the new subdomainʼs config file so nginx didnʼt even use it… 😏
