After watching the videos made by some of the projects in our class. I decided to find more videos like them. This video i found has 14 million hits but i find it kind of disturbing. This was supposed to be a comical video from the description which I highly dislike. Its disturbing to me thinking that people watch this video to laugh.

    The worst part is reading the youtube comments people make! It’s hard that these compilation videos get so many hits because people actually enjoy seeing racism spewed.

That’s not racist, and the maker of this video hasn’t bothered to do much research on the terms he/she’s bandying about. The click-baity headline has done much to attract the internet crowd regardless.
