Turns out, rich kids are better at hiding their online racism than poor kids.

Quote:
Pew interviewed 800 American teenagers and their parents about how they interact online, and found significant class disparities in how families deal with their kids’ dumbest status updates. While most parents express concern about what their kids are Facebooking, Pew found that higher-income parents are more likely than low-income parents to help their kids set up privacy settings on social network sites. And though 44 percent of parents feared how their kids’ online activity “might affect their future academic or employment opportunities,” parents in low-income households expressed less concern than middle-class parents did. Interestingly, high-income parents weren’t too worried, either—maybe because they’d already hidden their kid’s Facebook and Twitter accounts from public view.

That same article introduced me to the "Hello there, Racists" tumblr:

Get a load of this shit. Something us conspiracy theorist have talked about for nearly a decade. This is nothing more than an attempt to push these RFID chips in acceptance. Have fun Obamacare patients, this is your future.

Already approved by the FDA to be implanted in humans if must. (Yes, old article)

I don't have a problem with the chips. If you're obedient like you should be in school, you shouldn't worry about being tracked. If you need a chip to access certain facilities in the school, it just prevents unwanted individuals from accessing them.

Haha great fucking minds think alike my friend.

So you're from Texas--has the fascist Obamacare regime in place down there in red state Texas made YOU get an RFID chip implanted yet? Surely they have...

There is a hell of a difference between students in a school having to wear an ID badge and what you are alluding to, which is Obama secretly or not so secretly implanting a tracking chip in our bodies/brains. It's pretty funny that you don't see that.

Oh god, it's so scary. Every time I see a car with an Obama/Biden sticker on it I have to duck behind a bush. People have to wear "Republican" badges like the Third Reich and everything.

smh

I'm with NewAge on this (of course)... I live in TX and haven't seen any enforcement of this yet, but the point is, YOU SHOULDN'T BE OKAY WITH THIS... Just because you are in school and should behave doesn't mean you should have a tracking device on you at all times... and it certainly doesn't mean they should implant one in you.

I'm not saying that this is happening and I'm not even saying that it's going to happen... All I'm saying is that you shouldn't be okay with it

If I had children I would not stand for this.
