Best Place to Read Racist Drivel

Baltimore Sun Online Comments

Ever heard of a “Honkeycaust?” We hadn’t either. It’s just one of the colorfully racist terms coughed up like a hate-filled hairball in the online comments section for a Baltimore Sun story. If MLK had a dream, then here, under “Add/View comments,” is the nightmare—an angry, ugly realm where just about any news event can spawn a race-baiting screed. A piece about a Baltimore teen shot dead while simply sitting on his front steps? Here’s a chance for some mouth-breathing reader to trot out the line “black feral idiot in the ghetto.” Just one more reason to pick up the paper version of the paper.
