Why Are My Moderate, Reasonable Comments Always Showing Up Orphaned?
I write a lot on Medium and I have done so for the past couple of years, albeit with a name change at family request. Anyhow, I decided to spend some time cleaning up my long list of published posts. Of course, the first ones to be deleted are comments in response to those articles where it said, “Story No Longer Available.” Generally, I suppose this means the person deleted their story, blocked you, or deleted their account.
I have been deleting these orphaned posts all day long. I started to notice a pattern. The comments all came from articles about racism or politics. The comments themselves were some of my most moderate and reasonable.
For example, on many, I was encouraging poor blacks and poor whites to come together. So what happens to that type of comment. It gets orphaned.
It’s funny how you can completely see the point of an article at the same time you think we’ve got…
In other words, it can really suck to be a black person in the United States, and it can still suck to be a poor white…
Here’s the thing. I don’t believe there are real black Americans starting wars with poor white Americans. This sounds to me like classic Russian ops. Be careful who you follow. If there is a black activist blocking someone like me after writing a comment like mine, I don’t believe that person is for real. They are trying to divide Americans. In real life, I have always found African Americans to be supportive of poor white Americans. I have no reason to believe that suddenly folks would be rising up in attack. If they are on all the other platforms, they sure could be here.
