It’s a given that any internet article about race will eventually attract hateful comments—the most entertaining of which are written by white people clearly masquerading as black people. It’s called “digital blackface.” The idea is that a black identity lends credibility to arguments about race or racism; by co-opting it, then, white commenters aim to advance their racist agendas by committing racial fraud. The trouble is that these commenters often hide behind cartoonish stereotypes of black people, and their ignorance of black culture eventually gives them away.
