It's Official, Quebec Is More Racist Than Ever

The statistics are embarrassing.
It's Official, Quebec Is More Racist Than Ever

I don't know about you, but in the last few days I've seen some pretty messed up things online.

There are angry, hateful comments are everywhere!

Every comment thread, from every article, from every news outlet I've seen in Quebec contains racist comments like these:

And it's not just me who is noticing it.

According to an analysis of Canada's online behavior from CBC, the use of racist sexist and intolerant language online has jumped up by 600%.

But what's even worse is that it's not just happening online anymore.

Since the Quebec Mosque shooting, hate crimes are also up.

There have been 14 reports of hate crimes in Montreal since the terrorist attack, which is is a huge increase according to the police's spokesperson.

It's getting so bad, the police have actually started monitoring online comments.

This is no joke, yesterday night, 47-year-old man was arrested for making hateful comments on social media.

I know everyone is freaking out right now, but can we all take a deep breath, chill the fuck out and stop being assholes to each other?
