But, Demby, who admits that he found the @YourInAmerica account amusing, noted that a handful of teenagers posting overtly racist or xenophobic messages on the internet shouldn't be a journalist' primary concern. Rather, those pursuing nativist or racist agendas with the benefit of being well-educated and being in positions of power are the real threat.
In other words, there's nothing necessarily wrong with mocking idiocy for a good laugh, and BuzzFeed's account seems to have caught on. But, instead of going after teens calling the President the n-word or xenophobes who can't spell, why not take a serious look at New York City's "stop and frisk" policy or the effects of Arizona's SB1070? This is where today's journalists are truly needed.
