#poctakeover posting intiative
You might have noticed an uptick in interesting posts the last few weeks by and about people of color; that's thanks to the #poctakeover posting project that a bunch of MeFites of color have been organizing and supporting together. Read more about the project, how it happened, and how it's been going at that link; you can also browse the poctakeover tag to see what you might have missed.

Hearing from people of color in the MetaFilter community
We've been having a discussion in MetaTalk recently about negative experiences people of color have as members of the MetaFilter community and what can go better and how, and as part of trying to hear from folks better we've set up a thread specifically to make space for those thoughts from members of color. If that's you, we'd really value hearing from you, or privately via the contact form if you'd like; if you're not a person of color, it'd be good to head over there and read and not comment.
