Twitter account sparks outrage

As with any social media site, Twitter has a vast culture of thoughts, opinions, drama, and even the occasional racism. When things, such as racism, occur, it’s generally a matter of time before the flood gates open, unleashing a berage of hate toward the individual.

In a series of racially targeted speech, Twitter user, “tauralovesallpeople,” made a vast series of hateful tweets. The targets of her content, the black community, witnessed everything from a photo of the user in “black-face,” posts discussing how George Floyd deserved to die, and much more. While the black-face image was removed, she ultimately reposted it saying, “Got deleted, so I’m posting again. IT WAS A NOKE N***** RELAX.” Naturally, this created outrage.

Using a secondary account, now removed, this girl makes yet another racially targeted tweet.

So what is black-face? Black-face is the act of making your face look as though it has black skin. This act goes back decades and was commonly used as a method lf mocking, degrading, and insulting the black community.

Upon posting the image, for the second time, it is presumed that Twitter took a final stance on the situation. Upon looking for her two accounts, I quickly discovered that they had been terminated. This was most likely done as a result of violating their “terms of service.” Does it end here? Possibly not.

While Twitter has apparantly deleted her accounts, the young lady behind the posts could see herself in litigations. While something like this is generally civil, it is possible for the state to file criminal charges, all it takes is for somebody to file them. Furthermore, as we have seen with certain public officials, it’s also something that could return to haunt her later in life. In this situation, deleting her account was the best response. However, that doesn’t prevent her from creating another one at a later date.

The online circus

This was an investigation that, due to lack of a better phrase, found us. Prior to a couple of days ago, I was oblivious to a circumstance revolving around the Youtuber, “Repzion” and his girlfriend. However, that changed when his girlfriend, Maya, messaged my team. Due to the messages, I began probing into her.

I found a claim regarding a doxxing event, and from there, I nose-dived into the rabbit hole. Sadly for me, I had no idea as to what I was about to find. Because of the complex nature of this situation, I am forced to narrow down the scope. For this article, I am only looking at the potentially illegal activity, alongside posting the evidence. There is one exception to this: a photograph that is claimed to be revenge/chil porn. For obvious reasons, we cannot post that image, even blurred. Now, before we dive into this, I will not be using her name. This isn’t for legal reasons, this is a to vile to be formally addressed reason. Let’s dive in.

Hate Speech

While looking into the dox claim I discovered this little gem; this would prove to not be the only incident of hate speech. During a conversation, this “princess” makes it clear that white people are the “superior” race. In another image I obtained, she speaks of traveling to South Korea and obtaining a nuke with the intention of bombing Isreal. Granted, while it may had been a joke, it is also identified as planning a terroristic attack, a felony no person wants. As if potentially plotting a terroristic act wasn’t enough, I had also stumbled upon this image (picture below.)

Though the situation remains unknown, one thing remains clear: there is never an excuse or justification for attacking any person based upon their skin color. But, sadly for me, this rabbit hole wasn’t over yet.

The attack of a child

A 16yo boy had allegedly released some controversial images regarding this woman. Through this act, the police were called, as she claims to have been a minor at the time, the photos were taken. This situation brought forth some questions. For instance, how did this child obtain these images in the first place? As it turns out, she allegedly released them herself.

Here’s where it becomes legal for this woman. Her and her boyfriend called the police on a minor child for releasing these images. Though that is legally a distribution of child porn situation, she was the one who allegedly took the photographs prior to their release. Though it’s never good when images of this nature get out, this is a situation where both her, and this 16yo child, could have been met with some very nasty consequences.

In a conversation, of which we cannot present the image, this wonderful person was involved in a conversation to which a nude image was released. So far, I have seen multiple postings that discuss this being a revenge porn situation, which is also a criminal offense.

Going back to the 16yo child, it appears that the situation for him has degraded, resulting from his action. The thing to remember is the fact he is a child, thinks like a child, and acts like a child. What several adults, and I use that term loosely, have done is nothing short of disgusting.

So far, I have seen doxxing claims, harassment, potential slandering, and outright bullying from these wonderful adults. Let that sink in: adults are terrorizing a child over an impulsive childish act. For me, this was my deciding factor on writing this article. Regardless of what this child has done, bringing fourth a public, and virtual, onslaught against him is absolutely vile. While the woman, to which this article is about, may not be involved with every aspect of this, there are tweets of her fighting with this kid, which could have initiated the targeting.

Message that was sent to a 16yo child from an unknown individual. The threat here, beyond the dox, is an act called “swatting.” This is when you make a false police report, initiating a swat team response. This has not only gotten people killed, it is a felony.

Doxxing

By this point, it should be apparant that doxxing is the “go to” crime for online bullies. In an image, posted below, this young woman is clearly observed promoting the activity, so long as it’s against specific people. Regardless of who the people are, she is still promoting a criminal act.

As if the doxxing of a child weren’t enough, it seems that it’s okay to simply dox anybody they don’t like. There’s just one problem to this. Doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, not to mention the prison sentence. If you have a good prosecutor, they can stack the cards against you, giving you a hefty sentence. In other words, don’t do it.

This is a very complicated case. While there are many other angles I could tackle, it’s just not possible to do so with one article. What started out as a hostile message toward my team, has taken me down a very interesting rabbit hole of criminal activities. From revenge porn, hate speech, and the bullying of a child, I am glad that this got my attention.

Racism rises amongst COVID fears

Over the years, I have learned to never be surprised as to how low people will go. For this reason, I am not at all shocked by the fact the Native people are being slammed with an onslaught of racism. While this has been going on for sometime now, it is only now that I choose to address it.

Since the start of the SARS-CoV-2 epidemic, it has been no secret that the reservations have been slammed. While much of this can be attributed to the lack of available medical supplies, the bigger problem is in how the Native Americans are generally treated. This brings up the very reason to which I write this article.

In a recent Facebook post, a New Mexico native man makes a rather serious allegation against one of their local Home Depot stores. In his post, “graywolf” accuses a Home Depot assistant manager, Sandra Rodriguez, of posting a racially based statement. The statement, which is shown below, reads as follows:

Go back to your nasty Rez with your diseases.

Sandra Rodriguez
Assistant Manager
Home Depot, Gallup NM

In his post, “Graywolf” is calling for people to call the corporate office. As a matter of fact, we are too. Pandemic or not, there is absolutely no excuse for this sort of behavior, especially when it stems from those working to serve the public in any capacity. During the past few months we have seen the best of society. However, we have also seen the worst aspects of it. If you are against this sort of behavior, and would like to help with “graywolf’s” campaign of reporting this woman, the information is below.
