People who do not like GNOME have come out and are using this as a vehicle to speak truth to power. Of course, those same people have also gone out and made it about systemd as well. Even more amusing, is that some of those haters now wish the same to happen to KDE. Where THAT came from I have no idea. Eventually of course, Linux will be the next target cuz you know, you're not doing it the Unix/POSIX way and they plan on taking their toys and move to BSD.

Ultimately, money isn't enough to move elections. You need money + charisma + good ground game. You can't use money to motivate people to go door to door. I'm not sure how much this decision is going to affect politics. But it is a double edged sword.
This year is going to be a crazy season with wall to wall ads. :(
A black american gentleman has been going door to door trying to sell some magazines in order to improve his own life. Great speaker, and I took an instant liking to him. So while I'm having this nice conversation, I see a squad car cruising the area. They never cruise around here. We both took note. It's hard to forget that crestfallen look on the guys face when he sees that. The man tried really hard not to look intimidating, keeping a fair distance and so forth. It just made me feel ashamed. Ashamed of my neighbors, ashamed of my society, that we can't treat people of color without thinking they are some kind of crooks.
The last time I saw a cop in the neighborhood was when I had a african friend of mine and his friend come over and help me move a fridge from one house to another. Now, these guys aren't remotely street. They are Intel engineers making an upper middle class income. But of course that doesn't matter does it? You can be whatever end of the income scale and you're still treated like some hoodlum. There was no end to my rage after seeing my friends treated like this. of course their reaction is dismay, but they also shrug and move on while I sputter at the injustice.
My friend who is single usually willl house sit for me. Because he's black, I had to tell my neighbors that he's coming over to babysit so nobody calls the cops on him or something. I'm ashamed I had to do that. But I don't trust these people in my neighborhood to be adult.
Race in the U.S. is a complex conversation. But a lot of time we ask these people to get over the past and make something of themselves. It might also help if we also get over it and stop treating them as criminals. It's a two way street.
