re: Please don't minimize this to drama.

When I say drama I’m specifically referring to the ken/heydon/dan situation that this post is addressing, not the wider situation as a whole.

I am however very for the conversations that this situation has spawned about white supremacy/toxicity/etc in tech, as I’ve dealt with a lot of it firsthand.

It is in fact drama. You don't have to be scared of saying the truth.

This whole thing is bigger than some silly drama. People have been hurt and are continuing to be hurt.

I am not denying the fact that drama is capable of hurting people's feelings. It however is still drama. Or probably I don't understand what "This whole thing" means but this particular Twitter ish is plain drama.
