How to make black people delete your app(medium.com)

    You know what would have been a way more effective use of your time instead of writing a medium article?

    You: "Hey hello@anchor.fm, do you guys have any plans to add the option to allow users select their hand clapping emoji color? It'd be a great way for people to add a little personalization to their profiles and better represent the diversity of people using the app. Just a thought!"

    Anchor People: "Hey, yeah! That's actually in our roadmap and we're hoping to push that out in the next month."

    You: "Neato!"

      Real Quick Disclaimer: I didn't write this article. And as far as I know, that conversation is unfolding on Twitter between the author and the Anchor team. Sit down.

        Already am sitting down, but thanks for the concern.

        And I know you didn't. That was more just a general statement of "This is my response to this article" Not specifically directed toward you as the person who posted it. If you'd like I can edit it to clarify. Anything for you, Jon.

        But the bigger question, is Why didn't the author ask them on Twitter BEFORE posting a medium article making them out to be bad guys? Because that wouldn't result in the sweet sweet shares he's getting in the name of "social justice".
