Re: The Longest Thread Ever v28
Racism is still a problem the world over and certainly there are a large proportion of people who will think and act racist without thinking they are, so when you use "are you racist?" statistics, there will be a lot of people who say "no" when they rather are. No one is keeping slaves but they certainly aren't "colour-blind" as the term goes. This is slightly more apparent when internet anonymity comes into play.
I believe it isn't ever going away so at least a silent racism is preferable.
But, one should never try and use a smattering of tweets, posts, comment sections to identify what a real trend is. Because you can cherry pick all you want. It's a waste of time to use it as evidence. I'd bail out of that argument pretty fast.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
