@unsuspicious Dealing with hate online is the same dealing with hate in one's everyday life.
Either you give space for it to live, or you don't.
In the particular type of intolerance we see in most online spaces, it generally orignates in social groups that identify as white.
Ergo, white people are in the best position to stem the growth of hate, but usually choose not too for whatever reason.
Which enables said hate to continue.
@Are0h @unsuspicious "Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."
white people who will denounce bigotry when they're preaching to the choir, but avert their gaze and stay quiet when bigotry happens in front of them. white people who are willing to let someone else take a beating instead of stepping in and stopping a fist from striking.
