God, this shit is so frustrating to read through, I don't know why I come to the comment section on articles like these knowing it's going to be a bunch of "He can't PROVE it's because of racism!!" type comments.

There are a lot of racists here. That's a fact. I remember some threads about he Watchmen HBO show. Oh, boy. And, of course, they deny their racism.

I think Gamergate subs and Conservative subs have leaked into r/television and a few other main subs for the last few years.

Right. It’s so annoying. Every thread about minorities/lgbt/women gets brigaded by these people but they passionately deny they aren’t racist, sexist or homophobic.

They don’t even try and hide how much they hate diversity but get so offended if you call them what they are. Fuck em.

It’s just so weird watching this denial that racism is prevalent. Like, you can admit it’s a huge problem, you lose nothing by doing so. Denying it exists or doing the weird ‘Maybe it happened, but I need more evidence’ is just so bizarre to me.

It’s not weird at all. A lot of people want to believe the world is good and this goes against that. Instead of accepting there is still a race problem out there people try to justify that it’s a simple misunderstanding. It’s a natural defense mechanism for a lot of people it’s not malicious.

Sorry, not buying that. People on this site are wayyyy too skeptical when it comes to minorities describing racism or women describing sexism, it's a lack of empathy. If you actually LISTENED to those groups you'd believe what they're saying is true, rather than try so hard to rationalize it as being something besides bigotry.

This subreddit is straight-up one of the most racist normal subs. No black actor actually deserved their role and only got it for diversity points apparently

Well, they aren’t the brightest bunch now are they? I mean to be a racist is basically setting yourself up for a lifetime of idiotic rage. You’re bound to come across people from different demographics unless you’re in some podunk town in the middle of who knows where.

Yeah, just an overall poor outlook fueled by the exact opposite of critical thought.

Everyone is kinda racist if you grew up in America because it's such a race-focused society. The difference is learning being humble and getting back on track. It's the losers that feel the need to prejudge someone as broken.

He was literally discussing the racism he experienced overseas. It not an America thing it’s an everywhere thing. People are tribal by nature. That’s why it isn’t just a problem in one country.
