The Online Racism Question?

How do I attract racial abbuse online?

I know this sound somewhat sick, but I know it exists because I’ve seen it.

Do I simply create a profile and wait? What provokes people to be racist?

Just a photo, a video, etc?

I think these questions are quite interesting in an online context. In my experience of racism, trying to prove the incident tends to be quite difficult. However, where comments appear to remain online indefinitely, trying to prove racism is far easier. Perhaps online racism can shed a light on the functioning of race relations in society.

I could explore what prompts people to be racist my both looking it up online, and testing it myself.
