PV 4 Thoughts, changes Show more
So, if you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ve heard me talk about my project PV4, which is Play Vicious 4.
I started it a couple of years ago with the intention of it being a media site that posts stories about all kinds of cool stuff. In part it will still be that.
However after talking to a of really smart people and examing my own motivations for building, I decided to expand what PV4 is going to be. Check it out here: https://www.patreon.com/Are0h
Look, here’s the thing. I’m not going to say what you want. I have my views and perspectives that I believe in. If you need me to have a specific posture to mimic your particular sensibilities for cooperation, then we’re just not going to get along.
But if you’re about equality, justice and fairness for _all_ peoples, I’m in the fight with you. Every day. Even if you don’t dig me.
My commitment to progress is not based on being liked. I just want us to get free.
Aye folks. I don't how other instances will operate, but I can promise Social will be a safe space for us to talk openly about issues without wasting effort on people that don't want to listen.
I want honest convo on my instance, but if one cannot do that respectfully and without resorting to childish taunts, they will be shown the door.
I'm the big brother you call when someone is getting on your nerves.
I got your back. Always.
I love #introductions. Let me do a proper one.
I'm Ro. I design, develop, overthink and on occasion, make beats. Check out: https://thetwelfth.house And before you ask, yes. I am.
I'm also a history buff and I think a lot about social theory. Ha, you've been warned.
Needless to say, I got a lot going on. But I'm pretty cool... generally.
One high profile act after another — Jay-Z, Rihanna, Cardi B — rejected the NFL's offer to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, standing in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. "It says what we already know ... hip-hop is cooler than the Super Bowl."
The only thing special about the social media giants is their duplicity
Facebook made their money by exploiting their users the most underhanded fashion and then became a safe space for the internet's worst behavior.
Twitter has never turned a profit and has survived by getting periodic VC cash transfusions, which explains why they are so friendly with bad actors posing as conservatives.
The idea that these places represent progress is a bad joke.
Despite the federal government telling California it can't offer unemployment coverage to federal employees required to work without pay during the shutdown, the state's governor says "we're going to do it, and shame on them."

"As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging," Cohen said on Twitter on Thursday, "what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn't deserve it."

I'm very open my views on whiteness and that culture. I don't hide behind memes or marginally clever attempts to be subversive.
If you want to know something, just ask like a sensible person.
But if you come at me like a bigot in bad faith that's how I'm going to treat you.
If you don't want that result, act like you have some sense.
Your favorite person's favorite person.
