Elon Musk is Thirsty

Charlie Warzel writing at The Atlantic: Beyond its stark cruelty, this tweet is incredibly thirsty.

Reminder to white people

Reminder to white people: You will continue to mess up re racism. So continue to be teachable, open to correction from POC, and vigilantly monitor yourself for defensiveness and white fragility.

Perfect.

I have read the argument a lot in the last day that social media is the Public Square. No. The internet is the public square, and it is infinite. Twitter is an Arby’s on the Square, and you’re inside yelling about their lack of vegan options being literal fascism. — parker (@pt) October 15, 2020

Everything looks fine, until it isn’t fine.

Well, as Dr. Phil Plaitt (aka The Bad Astronomer) states below, this video is very, very good at explaining why we don’t see this stuff until it’s too late, and why early action gets called overreaction. Dr. Joe Hanson (of It’s Okay to Be Smart) explains in very easy to understand terms. Hey folks. Confused […]
