Totally forgot about Tumblr. Probably because of my four other blogs, Facebook, Twitter (can’t seem to make sense of it, no matter how hard I try). It’s so hard to pick one to focus on.
An even more interesting read than the article I just linked are the mean, hateful and ignorant comments made by people who:
Yeah, I know. People are jerks on the Internet. They’ll type things on an anonymous forum that they wouldn’t dare say to a person’s face.

“No group has been more helped by the American government than American Indians. Yet no group in America does worse.

Indian activists say the solution is - surprise - more money from the government. But Washington already spends about $13 billion on programs for Indians every year.”
I just… wow… um, really?
The comments on this story are even worse…It’s the entire Derailing for Dummies guide. I’m pasting some after the jump.
