Apologies for the late post on #BlackLivesMatter. I haven't known exactly what to say.
My heart is breaking for what Black people are going through. It is unacceptable, and must stop. They need to be able to feel safe, like everyone else.
Trump's further fomenting/glorifying of violence, on the birdsite and elsewhere, goes completely beyond the pale. He should be held accountable.
My Black friends: I see you. I hear you. You are not alone. I intend to become a better ally in the months ahead.
Mastodon is an ethically-designed, open-source microblogging platform consisting of a network of independent servers that talk to each other (the "fediverse"). It can be thought of as an alternative to Twitter, for example. This particular server focuses on two things: First, fighting oppression, exploitation, abuse and victimization, whether of humans, plants, animals, or the planet itself. Second, helping people heal from any of the above that they have experienced or witnessed.
