Few years ago, I was offered a scoop of an ice cream named “#ColonialStreet” at @NLChocolateCo

Which #bipoc wants to PAY for a taste of THAT when they can have it for free?

Same ppl who said to me then “what’s the big deal?” now supporting removal of racist elements

I see you
After learning that their ice creams are named after streets in #newfoundland , I filled out a survey asking @NLChocolateCo, “Why would you want to commemorate #colonialism by naming an ice cream flavour after it?”

I never heard back
For those asking why it was “such a big deal to me”

It was one of the many reminders that I didn’t “belong” in the city of #StJohns, #newfoundland & in #Canada. In that moment, I wished to go back to my homeland, India.

Here are some rules for social distancing that a lot of people don’t seem to grasp:

1. DON’T GO TO YOUR FRIENDS HOUSE. PERIOD.

That means you can’t have board game nights even if you’re sat at other ends of the table. No coffee dates. Don’t get together to sing some tunes.
2. DON’T GO TO CROWDED PARKS FOR WALKS.

Places like Bowring Park are on wheels so go somewhere more isolated if you can. As a wheelchair user I’d someday like to go for a stroll there b/c it’s accessible but I can’t because you & your army of friends are there feeding the ducks.
3. RUN ESSENTIAL ERRANDS AS FEW TIMES AS POSSIBLE.

Don’t keep going to Dominion just because it’s open and you want to have a yarn with strangers in the produce aisle. Go out as few times as you can and only run essential errands. Try to do curbside grocery pickup if possible.
