i saw this a few days ago. it's a fun read for the data analysis alone - and if it's accurate, it really just illustrates that AM subscribers were there for the fantasy. they got to act something out, stifle the boredom.

uhhh, yes, we're comparing the united states to other nations with stable democratic governments. alternatively you could easily post statistics that suggests nations like, say, somalia have gun violence equal to the united states. in fact go ahead and make that argument for us please

i think you underestimate the english-speaking abilities of migrant populations, and of transnational culture in general. hell, i follow facebook groups that post in thai, lao, and german on facebook, despite having limited grasps of those languages, and i'm able to pick stuff up just from that. i imagine hispanics do the same with english networks. but language, thought, and cultural are all inextricably intertwined, and the politicalization of the language people speak means that invariably peoples' ugly thoughts (which often reflect a hateful culture) will come out, so it's unsurprising to see peoples' spittle-flecked rage all over the huddle, even at the expense of fellow panthers fans
