    The beautiful queen from Jordan made a video about how bad our stereotype is, and then idiotic youtubers comes on to her video and comment negatively about the Arab world. I'm just wondering, why do youtubers got to be such dicks?

    Weird ... remembers me the Freedom Fries ... not so funny but i just grab this from Anti-French sentiment in the United States in wikipedia ( weird enough there is a lot of anti pages there)

    No other national or ethnic group appears to get the same continually negative treatment in print media reserved for France and the French, with the possible exception of Arabs or Palestinians, and even there, the treatment is not so much cultural as political, linked to a specific context or event. If one were to substitute, for example, "Mexican" or "Japanese" or "Indian" for "French", what would reader reaction be?". ( Edward C.Knox, The New York Times Looks at France, The French Review, N°6, Vol.75, May 2002 )

    In some cases anti-xxxxxx sentiment may be driven by xenophobia, a general aversion (= fear ? ) toward foreigners.

    I read & recommend a very good book on this particular subject : Pierre-André Taguieff : The force of prejudice : on racism and its doubles (Minneapolis, Minn. : University of Minnesota Press, ©2001. ISBN 0-8166-2372-4, 0816623732)

    Even antiracists... are racists.

    I think that youtube is a big junkyard and everyone normal who puts theire videos can be drowned in junks. She should like make a website or forum with some good admins and mods and then starting a iniciative rather than putting something on junkyard called youtube.

    They are typical internet assholes ... throwing out nasty comments, which they believe are deserved, because they believe all the propaganda and bigotry, whilst feeling brave behind what they consider to be the cloak of anonymity that they believe the internet provides.

    Fed on lies, and fueled by ignorance and the chance to re-direct their own fears and insecurities, they lash out at anyone they can find.

    It's sad to see how the West is widely plagued by stereotypes that were mainly produced by the media. People need to open up their eyes, start thinking for themselves, stop blindly following their ideologies and stop having those damn presumptions. Ignorance, while truly a bliss for a conformist with a normal life, is in fact a horrible cancer of humanity that causes way too much unnecessary evil in this world. [​IMG]

    You-tubers need to grow up (or down) and get their heads out of the sand (or their asses). (lol...I made a plant joke)

    I ignore pretty much all youtube comments unless they're posting a link to an mp3 of the song i just listened to. which is usually a rickroll anyways.

    They are probably about as old as you are. However, they (unlike you I guess), know that you should not take the internet very seriously. Just relax, enjoy the jokes, enjoy laughing at the stupidity, just enjoy it. Chillax dude [​IMG]

    Easy to say when the stereotypes aren't about you.

    Well considering that the flag he represents gets stereotyped non stop on this forums he does know how it feels to be on both ends of the stick.

    Regarding westsides original post the internet is full of kids. Seriously kids. Then I went back and actually read a few youtube pages and it seems they were all serious replies with a minor kid post here and there. With Westside being an internet guru I would image you should expect to have some bullshit threads and comments which is why the internet always needs moderators.

    I like how everyone mentions she is beautiful, like that has anything to do with politics.

    And +1 for anti racism is often a form of racism.

    It may not have a whole lot to do about politics, but it has everything to do with having to watch a video of her face for a lengthy two minutes.
