I understand. But my intent was to educate, not speculate.I see what you are saying about the cancel culture and social justice warrior terms, but I feel like this person may not really realize those are terms often used by the disrespectful alt-right. I actually didn’t know cancel culture was sort of a derogatory term until I heard more and more dumbasses use it. This user likely had no malicious intent behind it. Especially based on their intense fear of being racist or imperfect. I don’t think we need to speculate on someone who is obviously struggling for misusing some terms. All the best to you and it is incredibly kind of you to help others out
Same back at you for your kindness.
There was a story, news, back in my home state of Iowa a few years back. Some kids in a small town went out into a backyard, around a swing set. Some dressed up like Klansmen and they took pictures of hanging up a noose, pointing guns...
They thought it was funny, and posted it on social media. They were old enough as I recall that one was on the high school football team.
I got involved on the town's site, not condemning the kids but asking what the school and town were going to do about it?
I was given answers like, the towns one black resident felt like it was a nice town. Stuff like that.
Nobody was brought to the town to speak to the school. Nothing serious was done about the thing. Now, I suspect the kids learned a valuable lesson from the social media backlash. But the town, where something in the culture is a little screwed up? I don't think a thing was fixed.
I'm not worried about our young friend here, except that there are going to be people all his life that test him for his opinions and if they think they can make a hater of him, they will.
