That’s weird that they asked you to write something to so thoroughly whitewashed “decolonization” and centered whiteness and misused the idea of decolonizing and appropriated that term. Is there any folks of color behind the hashtag that I could talk to, then?

The removal of the joke instead of an explanation/excuse for it is all I was asking for, nothing else.
