@manton got it. Looks difficult to navigate. I probably wouldn't stay at a company that trusts their employees so little that bans political (and social?!) speech. I want my employer and my coworkers to be actively just, not passive. However, the writeup by DHH seems reasonable too, particularly don't equate one very stupid, very (racially) white mistake to the roots of terrorism. Feels like there's more under the board. The way forward I would have chosen is "we stand for inclusion, we PLAN and ACT for inclusion and we clearly label mistakes as such, without the need to burn people on stakes, but WITH a need for continued responsibility and accountability." More practically how to foster inclusion is hard, but surely as heck is not by banning political speech.
