Amazon, Community, and Confidence: consolecadet When EMTS and film/tv production crew comment on twitter threads about Amazon warehouse working conditions like "I work 12 hour shifts too, suck it up" like... ..guys. You shouldn't be working 12 hour shifts either. As few people as possible should be working 12 hour shifts scienceshenanigans THIS. Medical professions ESPECIALLY malus-syl-vestris Ok but I really, really don't want to be treated by a medical professional who's on the later end of a 12 hour shift?! Like that isn't even just about worker's rights, an exhausted EMT or nurse or surgeon is a lot more likely to mess up and get their patients killed, who the fuck thought shifts like that were a good idea frontholemonologues Crab mentality A Live crabs in a bucket Crab mentality, also known as crabs in a bucket (also barrel, basket, or pot) mentality, is a way of thinking best described by the phrase "if I can't have it, neither can you". It is also described as a desire to outdo or surpass another - usually a member of the same community or ethnic group at the other's expense.2 The metaphor is derived from a pattern of behavior noted in crabs when they are trapped in a bucket While any one crab could easily escape,13 its efforts will be undermined by others, ensuring the group's collective demise. 4[5](6}| The analogy in human behavior is claimed to be that members of a group will attempt to reduce the self- confidence of any member who achieves success beyond the others, out of envy, resentment, spite, conspiracy, or competitive feelings, to halt their progress.891 |t is also associated with the phenomenon of internalized oppression when it exists with colonial mentality.10 scoopisboopis Corporations getting crabby over people unionizing Source: consolecadet mr. krab in the pot

Community, Fail, and God: bemusedlybespectacled if your fictional discrimination is predicated on the marginalized community doing something to "deserve" its marginalization, you automatically fail any commentary on, or application of your story to, real-life oppression The Xingbarts started a war with us and now we Gurbits all hate them!" FAIL. "Nurts are a legitimate, powerful threat if they aren't denied basic rights!" FAIL "In the past, the Snorfals were our oppressors, so now we oppress them!" FAIL. oppressors will certainly use any means at their disposal including logic, science, religion, history, and philosophy - to justify oppression. "women are just physically incapable of learning, that's why we can't let them attend university! black people are divinely ordained by God to be our slaves!" "the jews control all the banks, that's why we have to kill them!" but it's never real! it's never actually valid! the whole point of oppression is that it's completely arbitrary! there is no "reason" no matter how hard you try! if you try to inject "grey areas" by making your fictional discrimination justified you have fundamentally failed to understand how it works in real life of course, that doesn't mean you can't have grey areas in your writing. there's all sorts of actual grey areas in real life you can draw on: intracommunity issues different ways the oppression is applied to different groups, internalized oppression, different philosophies within the group on the way to combat it but none of those are "well actually oppression makes sense because reasons!" heraldofandraste Some wise words 339 notes

Black Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter, and Memes: THE TRUTH IS Interview With The Founders Of Black Lives Matter @bornwarrior50 BY NATURE omoyoruba7in3 ti Repost @omoyoruba7in3 with @repostapp ・・・ RACISM IS INSTITUTIONALIZED ... ITS IN EVERY STRUCTURE OF AMERICA'S SOCIETY Structural Racism in the U.S. is the normalization and legitimization of an array of dynamics – historical, cultural, institutional and interpersonal – that routinely advantage whites while producing cumulative and chronic adverse outcomes for people of color. It is a system of hierarchy and inequity, primarily characterized by white supremacy – the preferential treatment, privilege and power for white people at the expense of Black people. Scope: Structural Racism encompasses the entire system of white supremacy, diffused and infused in all aspects of society, including our history, culture, politics, economics and our entire social fabric. Structural Racism is the most profound and pervasive form of racism – all other forms of racism (e.g. institutional, interpersonal, internalized, etc.) emerge from structural racism. Indicators-Manifestations: The key indicators of structural racism are inequalities in power, access, opportunities, treatment, and policy impacts and outcomes, whether they are intentional or not. Structural racism is more difficult to locate in a particular institution because it involves the reinforcing effects of multiple institutions and cultural norms, past and present, continually producing new, and re-producing old forms of racism. Individual Racism: Individual or internalized racism lies within individuals. These are private manifestations of racism that reside inside the individual. Examples include prejudice, xenophobia, internalized oppression and privilege, and beliefs about race influenced by the dominant culture. Institutional racism occurs within and between institutions. Institutional racism is discriminatory treatment, unfair policies and inequitable opportunities and impacts, based on race, produced and perpetuated by institutions (schools, mass media, etc.). Individuals within institutions take on the power of the institution when they act in ways that advantage and disadvantage people, based on race. I would like to remind everyone that black people are incapable to being racist.. Due to the fact that we la
