#BlackAF Roundtables & Sidetable in one spot

Get the #BlackAFRoundTable & #BlackAFSidetable vods in one handy spot. Aka this thread. Don't let these conversations be the only time folks in the #TTRPG space listen to Black creators and take us seriously, and act rather than claim we're just complaining over nothing. What we did was labor, both emotional and literal as we … Continue reading #BlackAF Roundtables & Sidetable in one spot

On the expectation of free labor to diversify your spaces

[Copy/Pasted from an early AM twitter vent this morning 12/21/16] I'm in a mood, and I'm irritated. I want to talk about value of work, specifically diversity work & people's expectation of free labor. So I'm lucky, and in a good position where sometimes people come out the gate with what are your rates & fees? This … Continue reading On the expectation of free labor to diversify your spaces

On the value of black women’s work

So yesterday I couldn't sleep and twitterpated all over about the Safetypin box and the reactions to it. Notably that some dude bro who didn't know anything about the creators (Leslie Mac and Marissa Johnson) I collated those over on Medium for anyone who wants to peep  that first. On paying black women for the work … Continue reading On the value of black women’s work

I’m fed up

I thought about writing out my thoughts on all the killings and shootings of our people instead of a long thread of tweets. However, I’m not doing that for two reasons. One) it’s like the second I talk about one person’s murder by cops, another occurs in hours if not days and it’s exhausting emotionally, … Continue reading I’m fed up

Disruption in my usual streaming schedule this weekend!

Features I would do a hell of a lot for on @Twitter, what are yours?

Sometimes twitter interactions make me incredibly tired. I get pulled into or @'d into convos I wasn't following, or part of and someone thought I *might* have something to say about whatever the topic is. Spoiler: 99.9% of the time I don't have anything to say, or I don't care. If I cared, I'd actually … Continue reading Features I would do a hell of a lot for on @Twitter, what are yours?
