Again with those tweets? Have these people lived under a rock for the past 50-60 years. Some of those tweets talk of how ashamed they are when I'm ashamed of their very tweets. Well anyways let's move on, not much we can do.

Really gonna call dumb people on the internet a "trend". I don't condone this bulls*** on the people's part but I really think you shouldn't blame all of the United States for their idiocy.

I wasn't. It was a rhetorical question. No need to get so heated.

So basically you made a thread to say that racism is bad? Bravo for sticking to such a controversial point.

Freedom of speech. I don't agree with what they are saying at all...but I would fight to defend their right to say it - and I am a non-white from the UK!

This isn't a trend racists have always been around, the Internet helps them be more vocal about it. The more diverse thus country gets the worse it will get, stamp that.

Not a trend. It's normal for a country to have a bunch of ignorant bigots.

America isn't the only one. At least all that I see if just stupid tweets.

My brother is a huge soccer fan and showed me videos of racist soccer fans in other countries that throw bananas at black players on other teams.

Is it weird that you never see Native Americans chime in on those rants, I'm sure many of them would love it if people who weren't native just packed up and left but you never hear them screaming "Go back to Europe".

Soccer fans are a whole other breed of madness.

They asked you that? I wish they'd have asked me.

It's stupid to say it's a trend in America. Every country has racists and ignorant people. Most people in America, just like most people in every country, however, are not bigots. So saying it's an "American" thing is just ridiculous.

But, not as ridiculous as those bigots, though. Considering America is a country of immigrants, if they really want it to be ONLY Americans that win, only Native Americans should be allowed to participate.

I mainly mean in the link you provided. It ends with "But, HOLY ****, AMERICA." You DID name the thread "America, why is this a trend?" but I read that as asking America, not blaming it on America. The link, however, seemed to be implying it was more of an American thing.
