white people on Fedi: "omg, the fediverse has a whiteness problem?"

me, reading the thread that ensues when someone posts Critical Race Theory 101 stuff and is promptly told that it's racist to say you can't be racist against white people: "...y'all."

meta 

people out here telling on themselves when they go, "but someone called me a cracker once, that is Racism", as tho racism is easily identifiable and not a system that is designed to keep BIPOC from attaining power of any kind.

the summation of this is that I am just going to start blocking domains that list linux in the name, and muting anyone with an anime avatar.

honestly if the most interesting thing about you is that you're really passionate about linux and/or that you watch anime, you are boring and I'm not missing anything, the end.

if you wanna reply to this with a note about how you're the exception and/or your domain is the exception, I thank you for identifying yourself so I know to preemptively block you.

@hafnia this is a good post and like a rhyming couplet

meta 

@hafnia oof ok i’ll take my anime and show myself out then lol

meta 

@haveheart nah, you're okay. you're like, the exception that proves the rule, I think.

meta 

@hafnia i think there’s a little more to me than “just likes anime” lol i’m kidding around sorry

meta 

@haveheart for sure! you have cute pets, you have interesting takes on music, you talk about your job and your life...

the kind of people I'm talking about never pop up except when it's in social justice 101 threads to talk about how the OP is Wrong and should feel bad.

meta 

@haveheart @hafnia LOL I don't generally watch anime. Maybe I should change my avatar.

meta 

@varve your avatar looks like one of those custom ones to me, it's not a Generic Anime Girl. you're okay. @haveheart

meta 

@hafnia @haveheart it is :) I used a custom anime avatar maker, and got it as close to my appearance as the options allowed.

meta 

@hafnia @varve i’ve kept the same avi for so long (since i joined sans changing the shirt logo), i’ve trancended goku from anime avi status to now that’s just me, rues lol

meta 

@hafnia Hahahah you said it! I'll co-sign this too

meta, pls don't block 

@hafnia Isn't that idk racist against Linux users and anime fans? 🤔

(Have mercy and also feeling distinct pleasure at the fact that I'm not seeing any of these "cute" replies because r.I. blocked these domains a while ago!)
