Relax guys. It’s just fishbowl. Take a breath and smile about something you’re blessed with:)

As many have said it’s more a sign of the times than anything about US aka black folks. No disrespect but in these newer times and with this newer generation ppl are far more fragile than in times past. So rather than simply confront one another, we leverage the system to remove those who we disagree with. Cant take it personal, it’s more of a reflection of them and the times than you...

"We" aren't. You got in an argument with 1 person who happened to be the bowl leader over there. Don't put that on everyone.

likefunnysmart

Lmaooo M1 I read this thread and I'm like yeah I see why they were blocked bc just from these few post D1 internalized anti-blackness is JUMPING out. Can't imagine how the post in the other bowl went any better. D1 ppl have the right to curate their bowl as they see fit. If it doesn't fit you find a different community or try to conform to the bowl culture better. I left one of the women bowls bc when I called out white feminism it was blocked for a week bc I was being "racist"- I said you know what that bowl ain't for me and moved tf on. Maybe try doing the same

What lesson can I learn from someone who struggles to operate a bowl in a fair/ adult manner other than what not to do?

Also if you felt My convo did not start from a respectful place then SAY THAT! One, I am the ONLY person running that bowl. Nobody else. So if my words were not the best, ok let me know! But that’s not what you did. You made things up and you also twisted things. Now you’re here saying things that aren’t even remotely true. Bringing it into a new bowl. Like.... dude 😒

That person stated the convo needed to happen in the Black cyber bowl because Black people “have misconceptions and thoughts” about getting vaccinated. Wow. Like we aren’t smart enough to decide for ourselves. You cosigned that mess by blocking me for 30 days. As a bowl leader myself, I will generally try to reach out to the person privately. But noooooo. 30 day rando block lol

Is it typically expected to notify your team of your schedule outside of normal work hours? For example, if I have dinner plans one night at 7pm, am I supposed to tell everybody (assuming a normal day where people are done at ~6pm)? Sometimes if I don't then it seems like I'm on call all the time, but I like to get out of the house so if I'm not working then I'm usually out doing something, and I feel like it would be excessive if I notified my team of all of my evening plans lol.
