Robb I’m not sure what’s going on with you but you have been really aggressive and dismissive lately.

And while I don’t regret not making a complete stranger my business partner without having spent any time getting to know them first, it’s a pretty big stretch to suggest that I’m responsible for any future conflicts folks had with Almaz. 

Additional, I’ve spent the last two years doing a lot of my own personal work around internalized racism. I’m not suggesting that I have absolved myself of my own biases but I am trying to share information that I have found helpful in understanding how white supremacist culture operates. Take it or leave it obviously, but I’d ask other folks if this is the kind of behavior they want representing the Omni community.

If I’ve done something to piss you off I really wish you’d talk to me about it instead of responding to me with such anger.

@ Niki,
i admit i got annoyed by the singular long ring of the door bell but
i think i'll take anti-oppression advice from someone other than the one who originally started the bad blood with Almaz by refusing to allow her to be an equal in your previous cafe enterprise
