When BuzzFeed laid off staff, the Internet quickly started the "Learn to Code" campaign. Twitter took it super seriously and now it’s even considered hate speech – at least, it’s bad enough to get you kicked off their social media platform.
The thing is, though…”Learn to Code” comes from the press. Journalists, social media giants, and a host of others in the public eye have previously talked about laid-off coal miners learning to code. So what exactly Is the problem here? All I see is stinking hypocrisy, and a little sensitivity if I’m honest.
“Learn to Code” was born from the liberal press. They should be embracing it. They SHOULD learn to code!
