who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season."
Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action";

Trans Internet Security Risk
Big scary security side eye at the new Trans Browser Extension "Shinigami Eyes" which encourages trans people to tag pages as "trans friendly" and "anti trans".

If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.
more anti-sjw fuckery
Now the outrage of the day is #debian's demotion of a developer to "maintainer" and the removal of his rights to the project's blog.
These people have *zero* self-awareness.
"Those SJWs on the #antiharassment team make a big deal out of nothing! They're looking for reasons to be offended!"
10 minutes later:
"THEY TOOK MY BLOG POSTS DOWN! THIS IS THE SAME THING AS THAT JOURNALIST THAT THE SAUDIS HACKED UP!!"
"The DOJ claims ...that Alabama’s Department of Corrections (ADOC) has engaged in a pattern of delay and obstruction during the agency’s two-year investigation, refusing to turn over records and ignoring subpoena requests"
I've been seeing a lot of the neo-nazi conspiracy of Rothschilds controlling the whole financial sector and the world. Here's my debunking to show how ridiculous that idea is. Also their supposedly massive bank only made 51 million pounds in profit. By comparison JP Morgan's annual profit is over 24 billion. Stupid Nazis.
Remember the Y2K fiasco? Well, for many Unix-like systems, the Y2K38 "fiasco" is approaching! (not urgent, nor does it have as nice a ring to it)
