There's no systemic racism but weirdly every time we train an AI on public data sets it becomes very racist.

If you see this toot (yeah this one right here), can you boost it for me? It will help my new server federate with the wider Mastodon network. 🚀 🙏

Thanks to anyone who can do this. It is really appreciated! This server is small but will be hosting several #peace #SocialJustice and #Humanistic groups, so it is for a good cause.

Just got laid off from BuzzFeed and I’m truly heartbroken. I have so much passion for writing and to get this news right before Christmas is truly devastating. If anyone is looking for a writer—I’m available for hire. 🙁 #tuesday

My 87 year old parents just called me extremely distressed. They told me to remain calm and proceeded to tell me that my son called crying saying he was in jail. He said he'd hit a pregnant woman with his car and needed bail money. An attorney then called with details saying he would need $7,500.00 to be released. It was a SCAM. I'd just talked to my son. They would have paid except for the fact that I have their bank cards. Please be careful out there.

Bessie Stringfield
'In 1930, at age of 19, Bessie Stringfield flipped a penny onto a map of the US then ventured out on her bike alone. She became the first Black woman to ride a motorcycle in every one of the connected 48 states — a solo cross-country ride she undertook eight times during her lifetime'

#Russia, the world's second largest #oil exporter, will not sell oil that is subject to a Western price cap even if it has to cut production, #Putin's point man on energy said.

I left my job abruptly yesterday over a disagreement about how to handle a situation involving a speaker at company all-hands suggesting we should check out Kanye's interview.

In my mind, it should be a no-brainer for an exec/leadership team to clearly state they whole-heartedly disagree with such a recommendation and Kanye's views on genocide and Nazism. Any reluctance on this front is unacceptable and an implicit endorsement that this kind of hate-speech is ok.

As a fan of what Sesame Street has brought to the world… I really which people would stop using “Elmo” to refer to one of the worst people on the planet. The actual Elmo is a treasure that has helped so many children.

Kanye West just posted a photo of a swastika inside of the Star of David on Twitter. This is abhorrent and dangerous. Shame on anyone who has enabled and supported him on his crusade against the Jewish people. We refuse to be silent in the face of this deplorable anti-Semitism. Never again.

Unbelievable except not. The most delusional people in US politics are "centrists" in denial about GOP radicalism twitter.com/ThePlumLineGS/stat

Funny how centrists never threaten to go left if fascists aren’t civil.
