I've seen a few people say "When I speak up I'm told to listen more and when I sit quietly and listen I'm told that I'm complicit by my silence", and others say "I do all this anti-racist stuff in the real world, why do I need to trumpet it online?" and it just makes me want to scream. If you're asked to listen when you're speaking up, then you're speaking out of turn. If you're asked to speak up when you're silent, then you're being passive when action is called for. If you're only anti-racist some places and not others--and in particular, if you're only anti-racist in places where there's no record of your behavior and no archive of your words--then you're doing it wrong. How hard is this? Seriously?
