This Incredible Tumblr is Getting Online Racists Fired

+

In the wake of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s murders, it feels like now more than ever social media’s become inundated with hateful, racist comments from idiots across the U.S. However, as we learned in middle school, there are consequences to posting your ignorant, offensive jokes online.

Racists Getting Fired is a Tumblr dedicated to tracking down the employment information of racists behind hateful Internet comments and sending it along to their jobs or schools. What started in 2014 has grown into a large online community, as the page runs solely on submissions from other Tumblr users. Anyone can submit information, as long as it falls under the guidelines, which require that everything submitted must be publicly posted.
