So, Danah Boyd at datasociety.net notes that if you search for "social justice", you'll get hits for people who criticize social justice first, because they will be the ones specifically using that term as a title, rather than just embedded in the conversation. You hit a similar effect searching for "jew", because just using the term "jew" is actually more prevalent among anti-semite discussions than in other contexts. 2/?
Yes, that is a blimp, it is in Salt Lake City, and it is, in fact, releasing high amounts of pyramid scheme essential oils into the air.
Good thoughts from Tumblr (not by me):
"If courage isn’t the absence of fear but doing the right thing regardless of it, maybe confidence isn’t the absence of insecurity but knowing you have real worth despite it"

@noelle See this is what I like, listening to the workers and not trying to split off and make up some demands that can be used to police people on ‘how pious are you’ later
I can't remember who pointed this out, but refusing to do business with #Amazon during the workers' strike actually kind of undercuts the workers' position. They timed the strike for the busiest days of the summer on purpose; they *want* Amazon to see that fulfillment is more difficult without them there. (And if you're just delaying your purchases until Weds., instead of buying from another vendor, you're making the workers' lives *harder* when the strike ends and they have to ship your stuff!)
A) None of the striking workers appear to have called on consumers to boycott Amazon during the strike.* So proceed in the way you believe best supports the striking workers.
C) The strike, currently, involves workers nationwide in Germany** and in Shakopee, MN, USA***. Other US Amazon workers do not appear to be striking.
D) The US strike is focused on free one-day shipping*, so--
