#RonDeSantis is imposing laws that violate the #Constitution, infringing on the Constitutional rights of vulnerable #minorities he doesn't like, and refusing to abide by federal laws that he's opposed to. The man is a #tyrant who's bitter about his pathetic showing as a presidential candidate, and behaving as though laws and the Constitution are optional.

Here, but not here. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what drove me off Mastodon. #Zionism, #Islamophobia, #AntiArabRacism (an odd one to affect me, since I am NOT #Arab, nor have I ever claimed to be) were the usual suspects.

Instance #admins & #mods did what they do best on the fediverse: they attacked. I was but one of a handful of #ProPalestine voices on here that needed to be silenced. #Dogpiling is one of their tactics. People come out of the woodwork to attack. It overwhelms.

They do this until you finally can’t take it anymore, and you leave. You stop logging on because you feel so sick and depressed from it all. You’ve been #harassed and #bullied nearly to the point of breaking. You’ve been called horrible names by horrible people who have thousands of followers.

The #Fediverse fucking sucks. All of social media sucks. It’s all just a toxic waste land filled with pathetic people who have nothing better to do than to attack #minorities. 😑

Ukraine's Romani people face discrimination in Germany (www.dw.com)

Fleeing from war, the experience of Romani people in Germany differs from that of other Ukrainians. They often encounter racism instead of help. More than 1.1 million people have fled to Germany as a result of the war in Ukraine — including an estimated several thousand Romani refugees, members of Europe's largest minority....

CAA Is an Assault on Muslims, but It Will Come for Hindus Too

The act, while eviscerating the secular fabric of the country, also offers no relief to those Hindus who have declared that they are citizens of India but cannot show the papers asked by the BJP government to prove their claim.

How are minorities stealing from white people when 70% of us are poor and 50% of all WOC earn below poverty wages? Sorry but the thieves are your own. They're stealing from you and you're literally opening the door for them and offering lemonade. #whitesupremacy #inequality #racism #minorities #billionaires

Many blame the poor for being unable to sustain their lives in the systems of this society - not realizing the fact that there are many at play and this is some of what many of the call systemic oppression

The community has been marked and labeled as "dangerous" as have and those living in

The truth is our existence stands as proof that "hard work" doesn't save you from death and despair or poverty

Places of Worship Act – a crucible for the idea of India

The next few months and years will determine which vision of India will triumph – the one which (as the Act does) recognises fault lines that were imaginarily wiped out by the lawmakers to bolster the dream of a unified vision of a shared India, or the one which is premised on cultural supremacy and reclamation of a glorious religious past. Soutik Banerjee writes.

Under A Shadow Of Fear, Christians Celebrate Christmas, But Not Like Before

After another year of Hindu fundamentalists attacking and harassing Indian Christians, the worst state being Uttar Pradesh, Christians living in Kanpur and the neighbouring state of Madhya Pradesh said they celebrate Christmas under a shadow of fear. So worried are they about encountering a mob accusing them of orchestrating religious conversions, they no longer feel safe staying at church for a long time or carolling into the early hours of the morning.

Arms, ethnic domination, choking dissent: Why India is embracing the Israel model

From refusing to recognise Israel to making Tel Aviv a key ally, India’s trajectory reflects a questioning of its very foundations, writes Sajjad Hassan.

Diversity Naysayers Make Labor Crisis Worse

A good article by Russ Niles on #AVweb. The story deals with #aviation, but is widely applicable and well argued.

One of the most interesting, frustrating, entertaining and occasionally frightening tasks of the modern-day editor is monitoring the comments on the stories we run. Most outlets have disabled comments because it’s just too much damn work to filter out the mean, hateful and irrelevant missives that inevitably appear no matter what the topic. It must be all Trump’s fault. Or wait, maybe it’s Biden’s.

New changes “are far worse than those announced on Oct. 13 — worse for Quebec, worse for its universities, worse for Quebec businesses who need talent, and worse for McGill.”

Quebec’s “catastrophic” plan to overhaul university financing is a “targeted attack” on English universities, McGill’s president says.
