I want to like certain tech news sites for the work they do finding and reporting on various things.
But then someone decides to go on a rant about how explicit outreach programs to women, PoC, LGBTQ+ people are bad and they're ragequitting some high profile project and kicking up a stink about 'why isn't it racism when I'm white?'.
Of course, it gets reported on.
And the comments are a goddamned garbage fire, with next to zero moderation.
Why do I read this site again?

Other white guys sit and complain that outreach in tech is 'handing jobs to people who don't deserve it because of their race/gender/skin colour'.
Do you even fucking irony?
You realise that for the most part we're *all* being played for fools, and this sort of 'us vs. them' is an easy tool to manipulate you?
Instead of putting everyone else down to stay on top, how about bettering both yourself *and* everyone around you?
Raise the floor and we all stand higher.
