I honestly think the person critiquing the post about the older picture of Audrey Hepburn is just starting something and being pretty much a prick. 

Yes, I get that the person doesn’t like that it doesn’t leave for a conversation but does a post have to? Maybe the originator of the post just wanted people to be aware that Audrey was more than a pretty face and frankly, she has evolved into that once she died. If one does a Google search you’ll see more posts concerning her fashion, style, than her humanitarian work. The original post was meant to to remind us that she is not just a fashion mannequin but a human being with more going on in her life. Not every poster wants discussion. 

Frankly, the critique smells of someone who seems more upset that no one is trying to refute the original poster than anything else and they pretty much worded it in an academic fashion. 

Instead of doing a post like that why not actually discuss how Audrey evolved into this figure? She’s not alone either. Bob Marley paints the walls of white stoner dudes, Marilyn Monroe is glamorized for having a “real woman” figure, and MLK Jr. is only known for “I have a dream”. You, critic of the post, could have taken that post and gone down this path and ask yourself how we both venerate and dehumanize people for the sake of fashion or some simplified message of peace. 

Now, I did read a response and they admitted they sounded smug and the point was how disinterested the post was in Audrey’s acting or talent. Of course, that brings up the question of why not just add on to that? Talk about her talent. Somehow, that made you inadvertently worse in my eyes.

A white supremacist charged with killing three people near two Jewish community facilities in suburban Kansas City this week posted more than 12,000 messages on a racist website which carries the slogan “No Jews, Just Right,” according to an organization that tracks hate groups.

The online activity by Frazier Glenn Cross follows a trend in which prolific posters on hate online forums are becoming “disproportionately responsible” for racist murders and mass killings, according to a report released on Thursday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit civil rights organization.

The report said nearly 100 people in the last five years have been murdered by frequent users of one white supremacist website, Stormfront. The site describes itself as a community of “White Nationalists” and “the voice of the new, embattled White minority.”

“It has been a magnet for the deadly and deranged,” said Heidi Beirich, author of the report.

According to the report, past participants in forums on the website included Wade Michael Page, an Army veteran who opened fire at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012 killing six people before taking his own life.

Another was Anders Behring Breivik, a Norwegian extremist who massacred 77 people in a bombing and shooting spree in Oslo and at a nearby youth summer camp in 2011.

Stormfront owner Don Black told Reuters that Cross had never been allowed to post on his site, and that Breivik and other killers named by the SPLC had been banned.

“We’re obviously a big website, and any site is likely to have a few unstable people pass through. Facebook, Twitter, and particularly Craigslist have had their share,” Black added in a statement he posted on his website.

“Like all good propaganda, it’s a mix of truth, half-truth and outrageous lies,” Black wrote of the SPLC.

Frazier Glenn Cross often posted on Stormfront until he was banned from the site in 2005 after testifying in a trial against white supremacists, said Mark Potok, a senior fellow with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Law enforcement and human rights groups have identified Cross as a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan and someone who has repeatedly expressed hatred for Jewish people.

Cross, who also goes by the name Glenn Miller, later switched to another white supremacist forum, Vanguard News Network, where the center tracked his postings over the last five years.

“These killers are really hiding in plain sight on these forums,” Beirich said.

Vanguard did not immediately respond to an email to the website seeking comment.

Cross faces one count of capital murder in the fatal shooting of Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather, William Corporon, 69, outside a Jewish community center and a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 53-year-old Terri LaManno. Cross is being held on a $10 million bond.

Potok called on law enforcement, particularly the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, to increase its focus on racist online forums.

Ya’ll wanna act like I’m exaggerating about white people, these are just how many extremists they’ve FOUND, there are more, and these are just the extremists. Who knows how many lowkey white supremacists are around us in our neighborhoods.

I always said this.

If white racists weren’t the MAJORITY of yt ppl then y is shit like this still happening?

If it were the opposite, none of yall woulda let half of this shit slide.

This goes for anti-blackness anywhere too.
