Racism Taking Ove Y! Answers!!

*Didnt know what to classify this under* I was on Yahoo Answers just browsing the questions and I went to the cultural section. There was SO much-I mean SOO much racism on there it was unbelievable! I haven't seen so much hate in one place ever in my life! I'm still shocked. I HAD to leave. I decided I'm going to stick to CM for all of my Q and A. Omg. I'm just so taken aback. I know racism exists but the things people were saying. This isn't a question..but I had to let people know. I'm going to stop talking about it now because its literally going to make me cry. Oh my gosh. :-( --*my kids will NEVER be brought up that way*

  • It shows up on You Tube comments, too. Usually it's kids, you can tell by the way they say everything around the racial slurs.

  • I hate yahoo answers because it's full of trolls and teens. I guarantee you that is so much of what the racist stuff is. Just for shock value, if you know what I mean.

  • I hate to say it, but it happens here too. It's the nature of the beast called the internet, unfortunately. Most people just do it to be trolls and to get attention. Mainly because they are kids and they are bored.

  • Oh my gosh, I'm just so sick of racism. I wish there was a way to make it ALL end. Its so sad. I am not friends with racist, and I do not socialize with racist. We have nada to talk about.
