When I get bored, I goof around on LJ. Tonight I clicked on one of my interests, nazism, and saw what it brought up. It was really surprising to me to find that there's a nazi icon community, nazibox. There's a few people, nyssa_cain & fido_the_dog, who's actually pretty good at making icons, yet she makes icons that basically no one will use. And then there's racial_hatred. This community is an open forum for posing questions about racism/prejudice/etc. or just espousing one's beliefs about these things. It seems like a fairly educated place, not too many posts that merely say "I hate niggers/jews/spics/whites" and then a bunch of comments in agreement, but there's a fair share of people who are just completely racist and it's shocking to me. I mean, yes, I'm a white person from a predominantly white area, but I still don't think I'm racist. I just don't think it's right. Biologically, everyone is really the same, so I just don't get it. The question was posed that it's really a socio-economic problem, but I don't know. But, really, it just shocked me that LJ allows it to exist; I mean it's called racial hatred. Is anyone else as shocked (that's the only word I can think of) as I am?

What's up with Full Metal Alchemist? I don't know if I like it at all. And why is Mustang so weird? Hehe, Spike's voice is in this one!!

I think I could really like Samurai Champloo if I saw more episodes. I guess I'll download some tomorrow.

While reading your post I was shocked to know that such a community exists, but then again there are also communities about anorexia and bulemia. It does seem strange that these types of communities would be allowed, but isn't there a disclaimer somewhere that LJ doesn't particularly believe all these opinions and that the responsiblity for the content in these posts lies with the poster? I may be wrong.

Anywho, the end of your post reminded me-- I saw a few episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I love that show!

Yeah, that's right. Sometimes I read those communities too. I'm sure LJ does have a disclaimer like that.

I love ATHF! Isn't it hilarious?

That's odd, I guess, but not entirely surprising. I'm pretty much agreeing with what Kristin said...it'd be interesting to read that community, though.

Hah, FMA...I've seen about three episodes in their entirety. I think I'd like the show if I had any idea what was going on at this point. And yes, from what I can tell and have heard, Roy is very wierd.

Ewww, Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Pleh. I think it's that hairy guy and the meatball that repulse me into keeping away. Though, like the french fry dude...Frylock, or something?

What have you heard about Mustang? Is he really the creepy molestor that I think he is?

Aqua Teen rules! Meatwad is teh awesome, and Carl is hilarious! Frylock is funny too, he can shoot lasers from his eyes!!

I'm not really shocked by those communities. There are other sites out there like that, seperate from LJ. Freedom of speech and all. As long as they don't act on anything, communities like that are allowed to exist, I guess, along with the convience of hiding behind a computer screen. Not entirely comforting, though. :P

The only things I know about FMA are a) I love Al and the muscle guy, and b) there is this one character that I thought was a girl, and continued to think so for many months, and, after having a good look at the character, found out that I was horribly wrong.

I agree with Christa. Ewww, Aqua Teen. :P They ripped off that hairy guy's skin and ate it! D:

Yeah, it's just so weird and wrong. I mean, I love nazis and still think it's bizarre.

Haha! I thought Ed was a boy for a long time, but I'm just stupid.

Aqua Teen rules! I saw that epidose, and I thought it was so funny!!
