Pandemics + protests = a new & chosen family. https://twitter.com/allieledoux/status/1267228888712740864 Sending all the love & solidarity to those folks who choose #BlackLivesMatter over hateful relatives.
👏👊❤️ to @runasand for speaking up & demanding better for all of us. https://twitter.com/runasand/status/1269603319384850432?s=21 When’ll we stop pretending that ANY business & institution is any better? For those who benefit from excluding women & PoC, these aren’t design bugs—they are features. #ExcludedByDesign https://twitter.com/runasand/status/1269603319384850432

Aunt Jemima brand to change name, remove image that Quaker says is 'based on a racial stereotype' https://flip.it/SWP.ud . If Quaker wasn’t only Quaker in name alone, they’d have called it what it is—racist.....& also retired their preposterous name & branding eons ago.
