1. This post

12/ To those white folks worried about Twitter toxicity. Please, AMERICA has been toxic for Black people for hundreds of years. If they can manage to fight on, survive and thrive despite it, you can deal with ugliness in your timeline.


Excellent point.

2. Definitely food for thought. I will say this though

Twitter has always been a gutter.

I don't think any site on that scale will be "great," but it could be a lot better.

This is a great opportunity for someone or some company to start something new.

5. So true.

And let's just get down to it. You talk about progressives losing their commitment because of despair. You know what's worse? People who call themselves conservative Democrats who will never even try to take up the fight to support Civil Right issues, because it puts too much strain on their conservative social circles.

Minority issues become the Voldermort, the name that should never be spoken.
