I FULLY apologize. I said something stupidly insensitive, and I regret it.

Really that's the entirety of what needs saying - I said something insensitive that I definitely shouldn't have, and instantly regretted it.

I apologize.

I'm wholeheartedly sorry for making a much-too-soon comment that was definitely in poor taste. What matters is how it _came out_, not my intent, and it came out super badly. I have tried to be sensitive to all types of equality issues in every aspect of my life, but I'm not a public person or a great speaker and some of what I say is stupid junk. This single bad joke doesn't represent my views on racial equality or on the systemic injustice present in the United States. I hope the rest of my actions in life are a testament to that.

There were protesters chanting outside my apartment during the stream, as there have been all week, and I had hoped to ... I had hoped to remind people that escapism is useful, but this situation is real, it's important, and we shouldn't be entirely able to escape from it even when we try. I obviously failed miserably.

To save everyone the trouble of looking it up, here it is: https://www.twitch.tv/bgcallisto/clip/BoldIcyCrabsPunchTrees

If people prefer I not commentate anymore, I'm more than happy to oblige.

Sincerely, and very, very stupidly,
Mike Z
