My twitter feed is 99% about the ongoing protests against police brutality, so it's really weird to look at the fediverse and see it look basically the same as it always does.

I get that a lot of people here left birdsite because of trauma or because doomscrolling is pretty depressing, but it's pretty freaky to know that while some folks are literally getting killed in the streets another community is talking about the same old tech problems.

If you're on the fediverse because you can't stand the injustices that inevitably spring from monopolies but you feel like the fight against police brutality isn't your problem then I suggest you take some time to consider why.

...and before it happens: don't @ me with your brilliant and original take on how police violence is "only an American problem". I assure you it is not.
