D’Aryll Scott-Jones, HMFIC of Black Lives Matter, called for immediate boycotts yesterday of all websites “that allow white supremacists to hide behind blank, lily-white avatars in their comments sections.” Mr. Scott-Jones made his remarks to National Public Radio’s Terri Gross.
“White avatars allow bigoted crackers to spew their venom while hiding in plain sight,“ said Mr. Scott-Jones. “They also allow racists to signal other racists. All those white avatars are missing is a white sheet and hood.“
Mr. Scott-Jones’ remarks inspired Facebook’s co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to announce that Facebook would take immediate steps to provide “avatars that look like America.” Mr. Zuckerberg hinted that Facebook was even prepared to eliminate all-white avatars entirely in the interest of “leveling the playing field.”
Mr. Zuckerberg did not say how many politically correct avatars Facebook will provide, but if Facebook’s fifty-plus gender choices are any clue, we could be in for another cluster-fuck of epic and hilarious proportions.
