Great. We'll evolve into midgets with giant testicle heads.

Different human phenotypes crossbreeding would certainly not lower collective survivability. You're introducing new genes into a closed gene pool and that is always a good thing.

That NEW SPECIES of human being will have superior traits than the previous humans (WE are the ‘previous humans’). They will have psychic powers. You know… the stuff you read about in X-Men and the Starcraft game manual.


… Man, if only I could live to see the day when that will happen.

I think personally racism is kinda newish. Studing art, I've reliezed that in Roman and Eygptian times, mixed race families we'er ver common. Several Roman and Greek rulers we'er mixed, and King Tuts grandmother was actually pure black.
But, if mixed races we'er the norm back then, then how did it become a sin several centuries later? Are we just repeating history, and finally allowing mixed families like our Greek fore fathers?

subcultured
it pisses me off with how much hate these people spew into the internet.
if it wasn't for finding almost any video you can think of youtube i wouldn't use it.

i'm glad DD stops hateful messages and ban people who do it.

I don't think Youtube comments have much to do with racialism. It's a site that attracts children; stupid, stupid children. And also young adults and teens with WAY too much time on their hands. These guys have no stake in the place and are free to make whatever comment they like without any repercussions. They're bored, bored, BORED, which is why they're there in the first place. Their idea of “fun” is trying to type in a comment that's offensive enough to get a response. If they can get a few responses and start a argument then they've been successful!

That's all there is to 90% of it. Nothing sinister, serious, or anything like that, just your boring old standard trolls that exist EVERYWHERE that will let them.

If the place had an army of moderators, that wouldn't happen, but Youtube doesn't give a Monkey's what people write in comments, as long as it's not spam. Heh, they only have a report function for spam, nothing else.

Look, it's just a different way of thinking ok? Here at DD most of us have a stake in the place so we don't like to bugger it up. There are also consequences if people behave like tools, so we post stuff here to be social and contribute etc. Whereas the reason people go to Youtube is because they're bored as hell. Not many people create their own content there, they're mostly just viewers or people that steel vids from elsewhere, and even those are mostly just attention whores. They go to Youtube for entertainment and part of the entertainment is calling people names and seeing if it gets a reaction.

Too true, and probably the reason why ignoring them will work. But then there's always the other retards who bite into this kind of thing, so it's not going to stop anyttime soon.

Even that wouldn't help much. There's way too much videos and comments on YouTube for the mods to handle. They'd have to have thousands of mods. I'm not seeing that happen in any scenario. I think the best way is to have the spam-filter also applied to ‘tards, so that ’normal people' can report those half-assed comments as well as spam.

Or get rid of the ability to comment altogether. Nobody ever has anything meaningful to say, so why are they there? Like Ozone said, it's just a bunch of kids acting like monkeys with keyboards.

Well, he didn't say that exactly, but we all know that's what he meant.

That is exactly what I thought.

I say we blame the Jews (irony, please don't hurt me).

This a much better plan, Canadians haven't been slaughtered yet, so they seem more like jerks than victims.

I'm going to stop this tangent here before it becomes too offensive.

In other news: http://www.bash.org/?814551

I know, and I'm sorry for posting bash, but I read this one and I immediately knew it should be in this thread.

I laughed. Does this mean I am a bad person? (Trick question, I've laughed at things that have condemned my soul to whatever unpleasant place you care to name).

If just laughing at that means you're a bad person, I've pretty much paved my own way to the Bad Place. In fact, I'll probably get a supervising job once I get there, way I've been mocking stuff.

Mad about Youtube? That's nothing, you should check out Craigslist.

Yeah, they're cowards. If they tried that in real life they'd probably get their ass kicked. People post racist/ism stuff on video too.

One of my band's lyrics about the internet has a line that roughly translates to

'Forums where they yell all kinds of stuff
and through anonimity blurt out the biggest nonsense
Yeah, kids calling eachother name,
anonymous of course, oh, they're such heroes'

Sound kind of cheesy when I put it like this. It's in Dutch originally, and they're rap-lyrics. They fit the discussion though, I think.

I once saw a video of a guy on fire on the news and thought it was funny.

He. . . he was waving his arms and running about and stuff. I think I need help.

I've got that beat. My mate was giving me a ride a while ago, and in the middle of the road was this (already dead) hedgehog, flattened against the asphalt. It was like 3am, so the road was completely abandoned.

My mate ran over it, stopped, backed up over it, stopped again, ran it over again, stopped again, backed up over it again, and then ran over it again at full speed. During this entire event, we were both laughing like insane maniacs. Now tell me who needs help 8D
