@patterfloof Buffett, of course, not buffet. Though it seems clear he's likely been to one too many of the latter…

@theruran Could you please translate this into a) coherence, and b) English?
Thanks in advance for your hard work.
@theruran No, I meant the whole thing. How do billionaires give my wealth to BIPOC?
This is an invitation to think before you write. To write a coherent sentence that communicates instead of duckspeaking.
@zdl I was addressing billionaires to give their wealth, not that they would read this anyway. it was a mood today
Someone embedded in modern-day sloganeering might be able to get the intended meaning, but someone not thusly embedded (hint: me) was faced with a sentence that made no cognitive sense.
It was a sentence that was grammatically … let's be polite and call it "ambiguous" … paired with jargon in a seeming non sequitur (since there was no context in which addressing billionaires was a natural outcome).
In France there is one, Xavier Niel.
What ? He is now the son-in-law of the 2nd richest in the world ?
Must be a coincidence...
Rich "investors" give money to ground-breaking inventors, not just pornographic companies owned by their friends.
