beep boop!

Hi Mastodon. I've gone a long time without making an so here's one. I'm Sammy. I'm a software developing gay robot.

I am a techy, cuddly spoonie with diabetes (type 1) and some sensory processing fuckery.

I enjoy...

Cooking, especially low-carb food, when I have the chance.

Factorio and spend way too much time playing it. I'll be posting my builds here.

Repairing things and diy projects, learning how things work, how to make them last longer, how to improve things myself, how to use new tools.

A twitter link to a thread on burnout in black activists and how white activists cause it

Black Protests 😠 white Nonsense 

So. We need to straighten out a few things. I was following the protests on Twitter all night last night, and noticed two recurring themes.

The first is that a lot of Black protestors have been talking about how their protests were peaceful until a bunch of white people showed up and started wrecking shit.

Apparently, Black organisers have had to ask white protestors to calm down, and some Black protestors have had to put out literal fires which white people started.

We all know who gets the blame in these things. We all know who faces the harsh consequences and who gets to walk home without much hassle.

There are a bunch of reports of this stuff in a thread by @FreeYourMindKid@twitter.com (I trust him as a reliable source):

I can't do a lot of thinking or working lately. The circumstances don't allow it.

But I can't help but be bothered by the internet finding yet another of Martin Luther King Jr's quotes to say what they want him to say.
