Can you imagine how much more effective communities would be if people actually just bucked the fuck up and said,
"What I said was antiblack and I shouldn't have said it. It hurt people and it was wrong. I'm sorry and thank you to the people who corrected me. I'll try harder next time."
@guerrillablack Honestly how do I make it my life’s work to get more people into this, because it’s all I care about. But I think about it all the time and still catch myself getting defensive sometimes. I think offering more examples and ways of doing this is a helpful way to replace the defensiveness habit though.
social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
