I’m conflicted about this article on Jezebel about internet hate speech. On one hand, racism is horrible. On the other, this article just ends up being dumb, ignorant teenagers that they tattle-told on, published their names (they’re minors, by the way), and reaped the page views.
Obama doesn’t need you to defend him against racist pre-teens and teenagers. There are legitimate moments of internet vigilantism. I don’t think this is one of them.
