Is the internet more racist these days?
Feels like it. I can’t read a single story about anything current without racist, ignorant comments blaming it on Obama the muslim and his lazy no good supporters.
I think it’s because everyone on facebook…. all these non-tech morons with too much tech and time on their hands… can now comment on articles quickly…. and every article can get comments somehow… and since there are millions just reading and posting online, why not post ridiculous shit?
Sometimes I honestly feel like writing down and posting the name, job, and facebook link of every redneck asshole I find online. But I know that compiling this list makes me no better than the idiots behind the “red scare”. It is the new red scare – red neck republicans posting their nonsensical rants about socialism (which they obviously have no experience or understing of). Rednecks arguing over facts is entertaining but toxic.
I think the tech is coming soon that the second you become aware of someone’s name you will get a report on their politics, likes, dislikes, and other online posting stuff. If so we will have to determine if we ever want to do business with right-wing maniacs anymore.
