Before I go, I've resigned as the tweeter for the Mastodon Project. I'm sure somebody will rightly point out that I'm not the best person for that job at this time, all things considered. I hope and pray that Mastodon solves the whiteness issue. I'm increasingly unsure whether I'm part of that solution or that problem.
Also, I'm gonna sign off for the night and probably for a couple of days. I realize it looks like I am throwing a stink bomb and running when people get mad at me. In some ways, that is what's happening. But I also think that I need to go for a while. I'm not doing well, which is clear in the original post I wrote defending racism without doing literally any research. If I come back and the instance has been completely suspended and isolated, I'll understand.
@seafrog I'm speaking within a vacuum regardless of discourse.
@ItsMorgan sure is! Like I said, I'm talking about the idea of human sacrifice within a vacuum.
@chillallmen I am speaking of the practice in a vacuum. Implying that I think genocide of the Aztecs was good or justified is way beyond what I've said here. I'm not going to retract this.
Perhaps one more: I have no idea what happened last night regarding human sacrifice, but I'd like to go on the record saying that the practice is so abhorrent that it transcends power, culture, etc. It's a crime against humanity and it's epic that the practice has largely ceased and is incredibly against human law.
