If you say something inappropriate on a public website, you should be prepared to pay the consequences when you are called out on it.

The social justice on tumblr is fucking ridiculous.

There is a significant percentage of Web users that believe that they can write anything they want and somehow enjoy a magical blanket of anonymity while doing so.

You write it - it is YOURS. Deal with it.

Are they criminally or civilly liable when someone they "out" is attacked or they mistakenly out the wrong Bob Smith?

What is "racist"? That is to say, who decides what fits their criteria? Anti black? anti muslim? Anti white?

Is the "n" work considered racist, but the terms "cracker/honkey/etc" not flagged as racist?

If it's done fairly, and equally across the board, I have no problem. Posting of personal information is looking for trouble though, IMHO.

Online witch hunts. Yeah, no way that could go wrong.

I see the site tends to lean hard towards a single type of racism.


Oh... my bad, there's only one kind of racism

THIS. Most everyone on Arfcom is a racist by some standards, simply for hating the policies of our commie in chief.....

Doesn't account for sarcasm. I may post a deeply sarcastic statement on FB, but my friends who know me would know the intent. Taken out of context or viewed by others that don't know me it could be an issue.

I see no good coming from this site. It just drives hate, anger, and animosity.

People say a lot of things online - like here in GD - that they would never dream of saying in person because they value their dental integrity and are essentially cowardly shitbags.

"uncomfortable", shall we say?

Personally, I think that if you're old enough to post this crap for all the world to see, then you should not be surprised that you get called on it.


Verily!

Yep, a violent society is a polite society, or something like that.
Maybe that is one of the bad things about a decrease in the fear of god - god is the ultimate threat of violence for bad behavior

Libtard site. I saw it yesterday and thought it was a terrible idea. Right now most of the people on there are blantantly racists, but how soon before the start giving out the personal info of people that simply say stuff like "Obama sucks!"?

That website is rather orweilian dont you think? Watch out for the thought police.

Hello racist.

I see you hate basement dwellers.

I'm going to take your post in the sarcastic, devil may care sense in which I might say something like this.

"Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing."

I've no problem with it.

I was suspicious, but I found the site (It's a Tumblog), but everything I saw on it was well-deserved. Yes, it's only whites using slurs, but if you want the other side, why don't you start your own site? They're free.

I'll bet they can't give the proper definition of the word "racism".
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 4:34:50 PM EST
Typical leftist thinking. The word is just a crutch people use against those they disagree with.
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 4:44:22 PM EST
Can anyone submit examples to this site? If so, perhaps some enterprising individuals among us could submit some examples of their own. It would be interesting to see the reaction they got.

Link Posted: 11/18/2012 5:20:34 PM EST
My issue is where the threshold is. Saying "Obama is so full of crap that his skin is brown" is one thing. Calling him the N word is another.

I guess I would have to know where that line is for this site to pass judgment.
Link Posted: 11/18/2012 5:26:25 PM EST
I remember that someone went to jail when a gay male was outed like that. If there are going to be such laws against bullying, then it needs to be done fairly rather than done to uphold a social/political agenda.

In fairness, the early internet - when it was primarily early adopters and the majority of people didn't use their real names - had an entirely different nature to it that has been lost as every mother's son and their dog gets a facebook page and a reddit account.

There was a definite, and in many cases beneficial metaworld quality when everyone was generally anonymous, and ideas and statements weren't tied to faces and names. That had to stand or crumble on their own merit. The movement recently to more closely anchor the physical world to the internet world is taking some of that away.

I think people should be held accountable, but here is what is going to happen. They will mis-identify someone with some very inflammatory stuff. This person will either get hurt physically or emotionally until they hurt themselves.

There could be for misidentifying a person, but probably not if someone is attacked for something they did actually say.

I also suspect that they are highly selective about what "racist" stuff they "out". If they ain't "outing" all the homeboys calling each other the N word and saying shit that if a white person said it would be horrific, then consider me unimpressed with their pissy little passive-aggressive douchebaggy social media movement against racism.

My guess is that these "kids" are old enough that they aren't just going to "grow out of" calling black people derogatory terms. Most of the examples I saw portrayed some dyed-in-the-wool racists.

While it would obviously be more even-handed if they also showed racism by other races, it doesn't invalidate what these people posted. I'm thinking that racism by white folks still eclipses the racism perpetrated by other races against whites.


White guilt much??

Again, that depends on what your definition of "racism" is. It seems a blind eye is turned to any form of racism perpetrated by someone that is not "white".
Link Posted: 11/19/2012 6:28:25 AM EST
There should be a universal "ignore" button for true racists. That said, there are a lot of dead guys who fought so that people could be whatever they wanted to be even it it's stupid racists..........
