"During this tumultuous time for Black folks in America, it was as if we were supposed to relish in the fact that the whole world was expressing love for us, but the truth was we knew it wouldn’t last. And it didn’t.

This group was, for a moment, utterly shook by the reality of racism. [...] It displayed that they had either not been paying attention, listening to us, or frankly hadn’t given a fuck about us."

as always, if youre nonblack + able, donate to at least one black person weekly/monthly. there are plenty of underfunded gofundmes for black trans women, black trans people, especially. and if youre not able, you dont need to explain to me why you cant donate. thats between you and you.

$$$ help from power outage, food spoilage, boosts appreciated (long) 

So my birthday was last week (the 13th) and i was greeted that morning with my lights being out, they stayed out up until the 18th (about a week)

In that time, all of my food went completely bad and right now I'm in the process of throwing that out. I don't have an estimate of how much i lost $$ wise, but i do know that I did lose maybe 2-4 weeks of food that week.

While i wasn't really prepared for a power outage, I was lucky enough that i had enough money from my birthday to get me through that week to help get supplies, take out and stuff for my folks, but now I just need to recover my food again.

I already have food rn for a couple of days but a little bit of funds would def help recover everything I lost from the fridge and deep freezer

Google fired another woman working in the ethics of AI... because she was looking into why they fired the woman before her who was working in the ethics of AI.

Actual BB supervisors roll their eyes at this though. They wanted us to be real employees too, but would point at GB supervisors like “yeah he gets paid the same as you to manage that whole team cus the last guy quit, on the promise he’d get his rightful position next quarter... three quarters ago.”

There were folks there for 8 years still on green badges, still collecting unemployment every furlough. But they had a fun break room and were (binary) trans friendly though!

Having worked for EA: fuck EA

There’s a two tiered caste of workers :) QA/Compliance/Internal tech support/Customer service are all what we call “green badges”; they’re not actual EA employees, instead “contractors” via a company called Pro Unlimited. They work you on 9 months on, 3 months off contracts so you never hit the legal limit before they have to give you real benefits. This is how EA maintains their Top Place to Work awards.

The countries with an
❌ are the leaders blocking a proposal to drop patents on vaccines during the pandemic.

We need a #TRIPSwaiver at the WTO. It would make Covid vaccines more accessible to us all.

We can’t overcome the pandemic with #vaccinenationalism. #NoCovidMonopolies
