Wild how many white men (and yes I am seeing this today specifically from white men) would prioritize "what if we can just learn to get along with each other" when the people they want folks to "get along with" are actively driving people out of the community.

Put your energy on THOSE people, not on the people who have a problem with those people.

anyway, if you're making calls to tolerance and just getting along:

1) remember that "getting along" has always looked like letting your idols/big stars/etc push people out

2) redirect that energy toward the people who ARE the problem, not the people responding to the problem

3) don't @ me
