I’m not sure why anyone would want to give a pulpit to people spewing hate. It seems White people can’t understand how giving these bullies platforms puts People of Color in danger. If White lives were at risk, they’d think twice about it the decision to give life to people who want to harm your group. Hate speech is not free speech. It comes with a costly price tag, and it seems only one group is consistently spared from it, and allowed to spew it.

Media platforms should call racism and hate what it is, and stop playing footsies with it. If it’s bad then treat it as such.
