I know it sounds like I'm holding grudges. I'm not, or I don't think I am, since I can't actually remember who posted what - it's just something to note and be aware of when moving on.

It offends me when my coworkers refers to every Eastern Asian person as "Oriental" or "those Orientals".

Wow. I missed all this. Where was I? I don't hang out at OT much.

....and no, I don't think you're a grudge holder, nor do I disagree with you. I'm talking about much more benign stuff.

You joined in '09 - this stuff happened before my first son was born and he was born in '07. Katrina was 2005, right? A lot of it was around there - 2005, 2006. Many of the women of colour formed our own board to accommodate all the refugees who were leaving here in protest - we did that in '06 I think. There were 2 other boards started along with ours.

I remember one exodus in 2006 shortly after I joined. I missed the background since I was pretty new, but I remember it was ugly.

So, I'm on Mark Watches reading about today's episode of Angel and someone says how they didn't like Gunn because they were tired on his "angry street thug routine". The ****? What exactly made a man and his group of demon-slaying, life-saving people thugs? Because they were people of color who lived on the streets? You know I reported that ish, because at this point "thug" is right up there with all the other language that's banned on Mark's site. It's applied to men of color almost exclusively and serves to paint them in a negative light. I expect the mods there will agree.

The bolded is how I feel. I want to know where I stand with people. On and offline. I don't like to be blindsided...If I know someone feels a certain way, I know to go into certain conversations with them with my guard up. I mean, I think we're having a light-hearted conversation and then BAM an -ism all in my face? lol No thank you ma'am. Let me know where you stand upfront.

and i never get why ppl act like it's abnormal for someone to remember what a poster said in the past. it seems like having a good memory is only a bad thing on message boards. if you said or did something in the recent past that is in line w/ you current behavior, or has an effect on how i view and interact with you font now, i'm going to bring it up. idk why ppl like waving off things that they said/did like a few weeks ago like it happened several years ago and it's irrelevant.

and i don't buy for a minute that ppl just completely wipe the slate clean w/ every new interaction they have w/ ppl on the board. it's not possible and it doesn't make any sense to do so. if i think a poster tends to read too deeply into my posts/ takes my jokes seriously, i just don't direct those kinds of posts to them. or if i know a poster likes to debate even the most frivolous of subjects, i just wont engage them if i'm not in the mood. there are some topics that i don't even participate in b/c i already know which side most of you will fall on, and for some of you i can guess (correctly) exactly how you will respond to certain things and what you will say. i don't see how you can possibly interact w/ ppl w/o developing some kind of perception (not harboring a grudge, not making in depth analyses about their real lives) of them. i don't know why anyone would WANT to do that. and really, half the time, the ppl who claim this will at some point end up reaching back a few months for some quote that will prove their point against whoever their talking to.

i'm rambling now, so i'll stop.
