No surprise: Australian anti-racism ad is not understood by racists

Racism. You can stop people using racist slur, but can you really change their sentiment? Alter their perception? Most likely not. People like to be stupid. It’s easier. It’s in their conditioning and although it may not seem so at the surface, it runs deep.

The BUZZFEED article on the same highlights some of the user reactions…which makes you see just how ‘stupid’ some people really are. Ironically the ad entitled “The Invisible Discriminator” has a very visible discriminator. Here’s one such user:

Stop. Think happy. Respect.
