Here’s the first line of a Valleywag story yesterday:
Oh. My. There are levels.
My favorite comment- “smiling white people probably should avoid certain neighborhoods”
Replace “smiling white people” WITH ANY OTHER GROUP and internet scolds would have tracked down that commenter, exposed their identity, and probably destroyed their life.
Totally ok to suggest smiling white people deserve any violence inflicted on them, but warning young women that it might not be the best idea to walk through a poorly lit neighborhood dressed like a hooker and completely wasted, that is an indefensible crime.
