And a reason why I have had to block so many ppl on Birdland is bc I was sick of seeing that shit.

I don't want to trigger or upset people, but I will also not silence myself and others bc your liberal day was ruined when I spoke about the truth of racism & gender.

To continue from what @horsemaths said, Black & POC bodies have become a spectacle, what I always said, in particular with art practice, a site of violence.

An issue ppl (moderates, liberals) only care about when violence has been followed thru upon them. Shaun King LOVES to participate in this over whelming need to pass around news/photos of people in pain or death.

I don't advocate that.

My thoughts on CW are as follows:

if you're going to hammer people into using them simply bc you want to pretend there aren't issues that people are facing, then you are purposefully trying to force us out the way Birdland did.

I appreciate the fact that the CW are there so that ppl who are going thru it can pick and choose what they engage with. I'm for that. I think it is thoughtful and the way forward.

But to use it as a censorship tool, is not.

There is a fine line. A fine fine line
