When racism goes viral.

Image result for jersey student alabama racist images I am not sure why people are acting surprised and shocked by the racist and offensive rant posted by a University of Alabama sorority girl. Being ignorant and racist has become normalized in 2018, so when a supposedly educated young woman decides to post her racist diatribe on social media, you have to understand why she thought that she would not suffer the consequences for her actions.

We do not waste water…because of the poor people in Syria. We don’t waste water. I love how I act like I love black people because I (expletive) hate (n-word) so that’s really interesting but I just saved the (expletive) (n-word) by shutting that water off.”

In a second video, Barber addressed the growing backlash and apparent threats to turn her into her sorority officials. “(N-word) (n-word) (n-word). I don’t care if it’s Martin Luther King Day. I’m in the south now (expletive) so everybody can (expletive) off. I’m from New Jersey so I can say (n-word) as much as I want.” [Source]

Little Ms. Racist New Jersey has been expelled from school, and now she is back home in New Jersey feeling just terrible about her actions. (She only “feels terrible” because her rant went viral.)
But just think about all her friends who were in the room with her. Or. for that matter. others who hold similar views but are just good as hiding them from the rest of them.There are many more where this sorority girl came from. In Utah, for instance, another racist college student posted a “Happy Nigger Day” lynching photo.

This is the age of trump, and racism has become the norm. Racists now feel emboldened to let their racism flag flow. It’s just a matter of time when we will see or hear one of these types of rants and shrug our collective shoulders. Kind of like we do with our racist in chief now.

This is his kind of America. This is what he meant when he said that he wanted to “Make America Great Again.” He, and others like him, are sick of political correctness. They want to hate with impunity.
