Mabel Keaton Stauper was a pioneer for racial equality in the nursing profession pre-World Wars. Stauper’s resilience led to the eventual desegregation of the US military, allowing black nurses to finally care for American soldiers, patients they were banned from treating. Stauper also founded a clinic for African American patients stricken with tuberculosis at a time when other institutions refused to do the same.

got passed up for a promotion at work for being "too brusque" to my wife's boyfriend 😔

I lived in NYC when Bloomberg was in power and Ray Kelly was his police chief.

I don't give a shit if Bloomberg calls himself a liberal or believes he isn't racist because his policies endangered *millions* of Black and Brown people for years and made our neighborhoods a police state under the guise of 'safety'.

Fuck that dude and every single word that comes out of his bitch ass mouth.

I think it’s cynical to talk about ‘oh im so happy that such and such space exist for POC/BP, you should go there”

Bc what does that say about the work you’re doing within your own space. Again, this kind of well intended commentary has been on here for ages its not new

I think im just finally fed up enough to be vocal abt what it means when we tokenize user experience to a point where we lose all nuance that we thought we had in the first place.

Watching Janelle Monae and Billy Porter on stage together gave me so much joy.

Look at all the space they took up! Look at all that room they claimed for queer Blackness!

I am utterly delighted.
