Apologies to any contributors who aren't employees of Palantir. But to those that are:

Please find jobs elsewhere and stop helping Palantir do horrible things.

Also, stop using my tools (such as Lerna), I don't support you, and I don't want my work to benefit your awful company.

See:

Partnering with ICE at this time is in itself a violently racist and xenophobic act. Cancel your contracts or I will continue my campaign of throwing legal wrenches at you through open source.

I have an entire team of people developing software around the creation of design systems like Blueprint. I have helped start dozens of open source projects which make up a significant portion of the JavaScript/Frontend ecosystem. Palantir will explicitly, by name, be refused open source licensed access to these tools.

The open source community is better without companies like yours. You are not welcome.

Last I checked, words have meaning. There's nothing racist or xenophobic about law enforcement. How come no one complained about it before 2016?

The law by no means is an example of what is racist and what is not. Slavery and racial segregation were legal.

That is true. I meant this particular law enforcement.
