Updated...Regarding racist twitter hashtags for COVID-19

Update: I'm still doing this search and report mission, but the occurance of the racist tags has tapered off somewhat. Not down to zero though, so I keep banging away at it.

Btw, Twitter notifies me when they agree with me...about 5% of the time. They don't tell me what they do with the account, though...whether is suspended or what.


I've been spending a bit of time every day searching for racist hashtags on twitter (you know the ones) and reporting them... for whatever good it may do. Yes, I have time on my hands 😏.

I've made an interesting observation about the use of these tags ... most people only started using them a few days ago. Go back in these people's history and they were previously using variations on #coronavirus or #COVID. My conclusion is that using the racist tags has been a concious choice by these people.

They must be called out on this, strongly and often!

I'm just starting to read "A Very Stable Genius" by Rucker and Leonning...

and before I've enen started I am tearing up because I read the quotes on the dust jacket. The last one on the page seemed so heartfelt and poinient, it just got to me.

Here's an excerpt:
"The disdain he show for our country's foundation and its principles. The disregard he has for right and wrong. Your first clenches. Your teeth grate. ...I swore to the constitution. I didn't swear an oath to this jackass."

I was reading it aloud to my daughter and almost couldn't get through it... it triggered something in me and I choked up. I think I must the identify strongly with the raw frustration and injustice expressed.
