 We all know there are many problems with Tumblr culture, one of the most obvious of which is that it tends to be a breeding ground for what Harp refers to as BAW-ers. But it occurs to me that not all Tumblr jerks are in the holier-than-thou vein--some of them seem like they're just jerks for the sake of being jerks. I've heard tell of people on Tumblr doing things like...

-Laughing at Europe for having heat waves in which people have actually gotten killed
-Laughing at Europeans for complaining about high temperatures that Americans are mostly used to
-Laughing at those who erroneously claim Europe isn't a racist place--while talking over actual Europeans who face racism!

...and so on.

Unless this is really more of the same holier-than-thou crap, just in a different form.

But Redwood Al-chan, Europeans are just white people. Each and every one of them have participated in the oppression and murder of brown people, so it's funny that they're suffering and dying off! They deserved it!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again; for all the talk tumblr goes on and on about how "reverse-racism"/racism against white people doesn't exist, they've effectively created a place where you're hated and prejudiced against simply because you're white. (To which the tumblrite/BAWer would go "OH BOO HOO, WHITE PEOPLE HAVE IT SOOOOOOOO BAD IN ONE PLACE OMG" while remaining completely blind to their growing lack of empathy)
