Catching up on RaceFail '09 at rydra_wong's journal I found this satirical jem from kynn. It's hilarious and pretty much sums up the opinion expressed by some of my less thoughtful fellow white people. I even vaguely recognize passages from actual posts people have made, which once again boggles the mind.
Also, this brilliance from inalasahl made me happy. She spends her spoons so you wont have to.
Yes, boys and girls, the RaceFail '09 debacle is still going on!
I stumbled on this thing in January, not long after it started, but then for various reasons didn't pay attention to how it developed. Now, after having checked in again at rydra_wong's journal, I discover that it's partly deteriorated into a thing about pseudonyms vs real names, with one side basically liking those of us using pseudonyms online to criminals (!). With actual legal threats thrown in for added fun.
I don't even know what to say to this. People seem to have completely lost their minds.
Oh, hi Internet! Hi search engines! YouTube! I've missed you so much! *hugs the Internets*
I've just changed Internet providers and been offline for a few days because the former and the current provider saw no reason to agree on a date to respectively turn off and turn on my connection. But, I now have MORE BANDWIDTH, which means my days of excruciating Internet slowness are over.
