I am kind of surprised there isn't already a thread about this, but I am sure most people here would have seen about the tragic events. My heart goes out to everyone affected, people should not go out for peaceful prayer and end up dead. I think what has hit me about this is the social media element. I work in tech, I understand how hard it is to deal with things at scale. But it really feels like the social media companies have dropped the ball here. Not just on allowing the video to continue to be shared, but in allowing people a platform to spout their bile which has led to a young man being convinced this was the right thing to do. Make no mistake about it, this is yet another case of a young white male being radicalised by the far right. ps - before anyone jumps down my neck about how this isn't the right time or about how you shouldn't use tragic events like this to make political points, I used to agree. However what seemingly happens is that you don't talk about it in these moments because of the above, and then it just quietly slips away in the months after until nobody really cares or says anything anymore. As such these moments are when we have to talk about the issues.
