Racism on WSO
I log onto WSO every couple of days to read what people are talking about, and I always at least one if not more threads that are incredibly racist, with many comments supporting it. Whenever crime, Black Lives Matter,#stopasianhate, diversity, or systemic racism are mentioned, the post is swarmed by people repeating white supremacist talking points (most commonly the 13/50 stat, which has been labeled "racist propaganda by white supremacists" according to the ADL, when used to say Black ppl are "naturally violent"). Thankfully there are always a few users who are able to defend the common good, but it seems to be getting out of hand in recently. Now maybe I spend to much time on the Off-topic forum, but I have repeatedly seen them on IB as well, recently talking about the "very high" crime rates in NYC. I writing this mainly to say that WSO should focus more on stamping down on this hateful rhetoric and create a more welcoming environment
Edit: I got 2 MS within 3 min of posting this lmao.
Edit 2: I am specifically talking about incredibly racist comments, white supremacist, nazi level comments, not some random fox news watcher saying something politically incorrect.
