I've said this before and I'll say it again.
The fedi is just a racist place.
Sure, people have the right buzz words in their bios and all that but it's been three years and the fedi still has the same virulently racist problem it had when I first set up PV.
People say the right things in public but they conspire behind the scenes to harass Black/Brown folks.
And it's not GAB centric people. It's your friends, your mutuals, your faves.
That's why nothing is being done about it.
The fedi is a racist place not because its hard to root out racism. It's been pretty easy to identify where the centers are coming from.
The fedi is racist because it wants to be racist.
It's not rocket science. It just is what it is.
People in the fedi like being hateful, angry and bigoted. It's just simple math.
The fedi itself is microcosm of Western society and it's unrelenting patience it has for violent hate and bigotry.
It's still here because people like it.
We sorry we came across like this. All we can do is share the experience on this instance. We didn't know it was teeming with racism till your toot.
We saw a bit of China-baiting, at the start of COVID but that was fairly easy to identify as propaganda.
Stay safe and well.

@dsfgs Again, this is an absolutely useless response that is more for your edification than ours.
I did not ask about the state of your instance or what racism you allegedly do or do not see.
This is completely irrelevant to what has been said.
Take this gaslighting bullshit elsewhere.
We talked about Cloudflare. Please be weary of them. They appear an arm of propaganda merchants. Their servers spew content aimed at radicalising people. Based on their control over many mastodon instances we believe they are indoctrinating them. Meme warfare is real.
"People" on their platforms are experts at producing extremists. Chans are theirs… produced NZ fwit.
Is playvicious.social Cloudflare? They could be producing content aimed at radicalising. Don't underestimate Cloudflare.
