flowerflowerflowers’s comment on the Reddit thread “Racist, Sexist Comments on Imgur About Asians: What’s up with all the racist/sexist comments on imgur everytime there’s an Asian?”.
I post this because it rings true to me. I grew up in a town in Nebraska that was about 4994/5000 white. There were few opportunities to interact with other races, but that translated into few opportunities to be actively racist. Other than idolizing black rappers, which we all did, we had no idea of the subtle social differences that I have spent the rest of my life awkwardly bumping up against.
Under Reddit logic, outing Violentacrez is worse than anonymously posting creepshots of innocent women, because doing so would undermine Reddit’s role as a safe place for people to anonymously post creepshots of innocent women.
I am OK with that.
