A thread that encouraged visitors to post their racist threads called “What extremely controversial thing(s) do you honestly believe, but don’t talk about to avoid the arguments?” nearly shut down the social networking site Reddit in the “Ask Reddit” section.

The large number of people trying to post their “controversial opinions” forced Reddit administrators to take down the thread. Many of the controversial opinions were either racist or misogynist.

Racism Is Still Alive And Well In Online Comment Sections

Gawker reports:

* half the black people in my area are lazy complainers – it’s especially annoying to have them complain about Mexicans who work their asses off and get no aid while the black people get wellfare, food stamps, and free housing because they keep popping out babies. Note, this is for my area, where this is common practice, I have no idea how it is in other places… most women who claim to want equal rights are full of shit; saying they can have the same jobs yet roll their eyes at stay at home dads, say that it’s unfair for guys to hit girls, etc.

In the community’s defense, there are Redditors out there attempting to correct, reason with, and make fun of these people. But they’re losing the battle. All of those comments were among the top-voted in the thread (described as “best” by the site’s algorithm). We’d love to have arranged the thread comments by “controversial” instead—as one Redditor put it, ‘if you want to actually read something controversial, sort this thread by controversial. If you want to keep on with the “things we redditors believe because we’re so much more enlightened than the rest of society’ circlejerk, sort this thread by best”—but, well, the thread is still blocked while frenzied Redditors cool off.
