I guess I acknowledge them, learn from them, and I haven't stopped trying to say and do things that are antiracist and socially responsible.

Saying "I take responsibility," isn't much. Plus, it almost sounds like they're taking responsibility for all societal wrongs.

That's extreme, but this kind of reminds me of the most devout religious people, who have been doing these sort of rituals with their kids forever.

It's almost like the Church isn't the only one using the idea an 'original sin' committed by your distant ancestors to shame and control you.

I used to think it was funny when the left ate their own, but not so much now. This particular quote used to justify silencing those who objected to destroying this person's career for linking to a study that criticized violent protests is very troubling:

Quote:
But unfortunately, white fragility can only protect the problematic behavior you feel so defensive about; it does not demonstrate that you are an open person who has no problematic racial behavior.


This is straight out of the Soviet playbook or something from 1984. Demonstrate allegiance or else. Lots people here made a logical separation between the violent protestors and the peaceful protestors, I certainly did and still do, but apparently that itself is horrible and deserving of expulsion.



This part is crucial for many on this forum as well:

Quote:
Helping Trump get un-elected (in itself) is not going to lead to better behavior by cops, when the goal of abolitionist work isn’t to have better-trained/nicer/POC cops but to systematically dismantle the very institution of policing to begin with.


Again, people aren't being honest with themselves when they say things like "defund the police does not mean no police". Yes it fucking does, you are only pretending not to see that so that you don't have to question your own orthodoxy or worse, end up like Mr. Shor.

At least we can all come together on the subject of corporate wokeism.



This along with the stupid cartoon voice acting controversy (that few if any minorities care about).

All that tv show actor/episode correction stuff is just brand management, pure and simple. They’re rushing in to respond to an outcry that doesn’t exist, trying to second guess the next part of the cultural conversation in order to avoid becoming tomorrow's negative news story. The problem is, the people in charge don’t understand the ambitions and perceptions of “woke” culture any better than bi_3 does, so they look at this moment and draw the same misfired conclusions he does.

“Ahh, jeez, I suppose ‘cancel (insert inconsequential thing generating royalties) is next. We’d better get a jump on that.”

You are not involved in a career with any sort of artistic and social media presence. The artists I know via my kid are all scared of social media but required to use it.

I'm torn. On the one hand, I like the normalization of "y'all"

On the other, people who say "folks" should be hurled off of highrise rooftops.
