The Daily Dot discovered r/fergsuon, whose front page currently displays several items supporting Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, alongside other, openly racist posts, and contacted its founder, who goes by Jewish_NeoCon2. He told the site he registered r/ferguson two days after Brown was killed so that other, non-racist persons couldn’t grab it.
The Ferguson subreddit isn’t very large—just 174 people subscribe at the time of this writing, as opposed to 12,528 on r/StLouis, a more established board—and several of its users post straight, non-racist news items about the protests. Its intent, however is clear: a sidebar urges users to visit r/GreatApes, a popular white supremacist board also moderated by Jewish_NeoCon2, and advertises itself as part of the so-called “Chimpire,” a community of dozens of virulently racist subreddits.
It’s astounding that sites like this are get much real estate on Reddit, but if you try to put something on that site from alan.com it will tell you: alan.com is not allowed on reddit: the domain is banned.[su_sky_ad]
