Fair question!

I think it does more harm than good. It’s easy to understand what kind of person you are referring to, but what it obscures is that there’s a LOT of people (likely majority upper class or upper-middle class) who hold the same abhorrent views. It’s too easy to paint the 1% of people as villains while ignoring perhaps the more insidious threat that it’s a somewhat accepted opinion. I think of it in the same way as racism — it’s easy to identify KKK and white supremecast members as racist, but what’s as or more harmful is the casual racism that might lead someone to unconsciously toss a resume with a “black” name.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
