Obama Hate Speech Spreads on Facebook
Tech News Daily ^ | July 19, 2012 | Leslie Meredith

Posted on 10/09/2012 3:13:32 PM PDT by Redcat

Racism is alive and well on Facebook, despite the social network's policy banning hate speech.

A new study from Baylor University shows how anti-Obama and just plain racist groups use Facebook to spread their messages. And we're not talking about politics, but Ku Klux Klan-style hate speech using old stereotypes updated with do-rags and golden grills.

"Some people have declared the present a "post-racial" era in that U.S. citizens elected a black president, maintaining that policies to address racism are no longer necessary," Mia Moody, Ph.D., who led the Baylor study, said in a statement. "But depictions of minorities in new media show otherwise."

You can be sure, if it is Black Ku Klux Klan type of racism...it does not get removed from any of the Facebook/Twitter type of sites. Look at all the hate against George Zimmerman from the Black Racists and White Guilt Liberals...or the recent hate spewed on Stacey Dash

"anti-Obama"

Being anti-Obama is patriotism, not hate speech.

Yet another racist leftwinger glued to zero’s hips warping the youth of America.

“I like serving as a mentor to students and helping them reach their full potential.”

Another lifer on the Baylor teat.

“Racism is alive and well on Facebook, despite the social network’s policy banning hate speech.”

Maybe the author’s confusing this with the twitter posts directed at Stacey Dash by left wingers.

Obama’s empty chair debate style has left his stooges totally dependent on the race card. A recent letter to the editor in my local paper cited 4 questionable incidents as “proof” that all criticism of The One is “racist”. It would seem to me that constantly crying “racism” is what’s actually racist.

Close friend of mine has been sent to Facebook timeout three times now for daring to state that reverse racism is tolerated while even using the N-word as the blacks themselves use it amongst themselves is absoulutely verbotten. He will lose the argument but at least he tried.

Since OWonderBoy became president I find myself very concerned about racism. The reverse-racism that put this man into a position where he could attend universities over surely more-qualified candidates disturbs me deeply. We are all paying a price for this. He has risen to a level far beyond his own incompetence, God help us.

“......but Ku Klux Klan-style hate speech using old stereotypes updated with do-rags and golden grills.”

If “old” racism is back, it is because of fools like this forcing it back.
