Violence/Genocide: Do not condone violence or genocide on a person or group of people. You are free to attack a person or groups ideas but you are crossing the line when calling for violence. This will be heavily enforced in threads with breaking news involving victims.

Opinion Nowadays when u encounter a racist incident the best thing u can do is to record & post it online?

    Agreed. It's so easy for this to become a witch hunt, and there is a good argument to say that it already is one.

    I've already heard of people using this to get rid of competition for promotions.

    And the craziest thing is... Is that this will mostly hurt good people.

    An asshole like me already knew from an early age that I had to be self-employed. I'll be fine.

    But the friendly, always nice to his neighbors, family man who works a job and is supporting two kids... Gets stabbed in the back by a co-worker due to an "allegation." Wife starts getting distant, friends start leaving, suddenly can't support kids.

    "Innocent until proven guilty" just seems to be forgotten now.

    People are destroying their own livelihoods by acting in way that violate their company's policies and go against their company's ethos. The individuals recording have no duty to protect anyones career. Take accountability for your behaviour rather than shifting blame.

    The problem is that certain people from certain demographics are used to how things were 50 years ago, where there was less/no accountability. You are right, what is considered to be socially acceptable does change. Try to keep up mate lol.

    Hell, it doesn't even have to be a racist incident. Any time you want to commit a crime, just record it and say the victim called you a racial slur before you started recording.

    Huh?

    This post didn't even attempt to make sense. Yeah, if you're a degenerate, just pick a fight with everyone and see who you can take down because you have nothing to lose and maybe you'll go viral . The company had nothing to do with it until you made them apart of it.

    You're forgetting that you're still a minority, and if you get rid of equality, it could easily swing back on you with even a slight "yeah, we're done with this shit". You're overplaying your hand in your attempt at bigotry.

    I kind of want Biden to win now so when he sicks the cops and national guard on these people and CNN covers for him while labeling BLM a terrorist organization, they can see how it feels.

    Lol you sound emotional. You are just spewing your rehearsed rhetoric that has nothing to do with my point. My point still stands, if you decide to provide the content for these videos through your lack of self control, then that's on you, not the person recording. In the same way you're an advocate for freedom, why is that freedom not extended to those recording. Why can you say what you want but someone can't record you saying it and post it online? If you know what your company's stance is, then consider your actions if you care about your career. Take personal responsibility.

    All the other nonsense you have said, I'm not even going to address it lol.

    I don't disagree with you on this. I try to consider what I say in public before I say it and stand by the things I say. I'd respect these people more if they did the same.

    I mean the progression of this is obvious. People with nothing going on in their lives run around causing trouble and harassing people who look well to do and film their response. They have nothing to lose.

    Throughout our country's entire history, certain ethnic groups have been harassed and publicly insulted or mistreated. During my lifetime, the groups who have dealt with this the most have been Blacks, Hispanics, Jews, and Asians. But people tend to take this "out of sight, out of mind" approach, where they pretend something doesn't actually happen unless there's video evidence.

    So now we have video evidence of this stuff happening every single day, and people are sharing that evidence to prove that this was never a fabrication. It's a fairly regular occurrence.

    But instead of, "Wow, I guess you were right, this stuff is pretty normal, I'm sorry people have to deal with that." We see those people say, "Aw no, don't embarrass the people going on racial rants in public, that's mean."

    There's no way to win in that scenario. People will pretend it doesn't happen, unless there's proof, then they'll say it's mean to show the proof.

    I think that shows a complete disregard for the people who have to deal with the racial attacks, and far too much sympathy for the people actually dishing out the racial attacks.

    It sort of reminds me of how people treat athletes. When you're poor, nobody wants to listen to you and you don't have a platform anyways. But if you become rich through athletics and try to speak for the poor, people will say you're just a spoiled, rich, athlete. Essentially, you've been stripped of having a voice because you're either too poor to have a platform or too rich to have credibility (even if you were poor your entire life). There's no way to win, and it's designed that way. If people do not want to hear your voice, then they will come up with excuses for why your voice doesn't matter.

    If someone is harrassing you, walk away or ring the police and try not to say anything racist while waiting for them to come. Sounds simple to me

    If you’re white you are racist by nature. That’s all you need baby, riot on.

    That's how you interpret all of these videos? Trouble makers who are baiting well-to-doers into saying racist things on camera? Do you really think "well-to-doers" call people racist names?

    I'm sorry, but to me that sounds like a narrative that you created in your own mind. There are countless videos online at this point of people being attacked for their race for a wide variety of nonsensical reasons. Many times, the minority being racially attacked appears to be the "well-to-doer" and the person attacking them seems like troublemaker. The fact that you're spinning a narrative in an attempt to defend the racists, instead of the people being called racist names, is so strange to me.

    I've been in lots of arguments in my lifetime. I've never once even thought to start racially attacking somebody during an argument. Why? Because I'm not a racist, and the thought never even crossed my mind. If you are arguing with somebody and your first thought is to use racial slurs, you are probably a racist. If you're a racist and you are arguing with somebody in public, you should probably exercise some self-control instead of exposing yourself.

    No, I'm pretty sure the issue is calling the police unnecessarily. Try again

    I wouldn't do anything. I'm white; I got 99 problems but racism ain't one.

    Even if it’s Sasha Baron Cohen luring you?
    Don’t you feel sorry for the politicians that he has duped and pushed into saying hateful things?

    Fellow Retail Grunt checking in. Can confirm that shit happens all the time. My favourite response was a manager who informed a Chinese man who was being escorted out of the store that,

    "I'm not throwing you out because of your race. I'm throwing you out because you're a fucking prick".

    People are acting how they've always acted, the only difference is now technology allows their behaviour to be shared. Of course like anything else in life some people will try to jump on the bandwagon for "clout," but aside from that I'm really enjoying all these assholes being exposed. And if the pendulum swings too far the other way, I will shed a tear for your suffering lol.
