in recent years the internet has really become a place for people to spread non-media regulated information and for social justice movements to find their footing. i cannot stop thinking about how this is probably a huge huge reason why net neutrality has been on the chopping block so frequently lately. they want to control what we see because they want to make sure their authority isn’t questioned and they want to make sure people can’t unite. it’s scary.
getting rid of net neutrality would actually be really good because the cable companies could make more money and then they would raise wages and that would trickle down and stimulate the economy leading to an expansionary period. just a thought. (I have a degree from business school)
Parents, what’s the most absurd thing you’ve found on your kid’s social media?
My step son is 7. Found a bunch of searches for:
Dominicans with no hands and feet.
Dominicans with no heads.
Dominicans in stores.
Dominicans for sale.
I was at a loss of how to bring it up to him. Thankfully, the next day we were in a clothing store and he asked me why Dominicans don’t have hands or heads, then why there are so many different colored Dominicans. I remembered the internet searches and became a little upset. I told him to be quiet because what he was saying could be taken offensively by Dominican people. He then got frustrated and loudly said “Dominicans aren’t people” as he pointed to a statue next to us.
I breathed a sigh of relief and said “Mannequins”.
