You’re partly right, of course, but please don’t try to say there are no racists here! The internet has always been a safe haven for bigots too.
If only it was just for the knee-jerk reactions, this cartoon saga could have fade away faster, but the thing is when you get the real racists adding
fuel to the fire with their prejudices. The shameless blatant display of racism one here is mind-blowing at times. And the most insulting is that
those bigots think nobody will understand their “coded language”.
One thing I find strikingly funny is when it comes to music culturally. Blacks are always associated with gangster rap, as always the most negative.
What about Jazz, rock? You may say: oh well they identify themselves with gangster rap! But you know they’ve done other genres. So why always focus
on the negative? Even the dumbest mind would have to know that not all whites were pro-slavery, not all Germans were Nazis, and not all Arabs are
terrorist. Maybe those who demand intellectual wisdom should do a little intellect efforts on their part and not take advantage of other’s
misfortune in life. All ethnicities/nations go through phases in history. Maybe the poor dumb black stereotype you comfort yourself in today will die
out to become the leader of humanity tomorrow. Maybe the Africa you know today will be different tomorrow. Maybe the superiority you delude yourself
in today will show itself to be just that: an illusion.
