The internet is a beautiful thing. It gives us access to YouTube videos, a wide array of sources and texts that would otherwise be inaccessible to us and it also serves as a form of vigilante justice. By now, everyone knows of the Charlottesville protests. For those who are unaware, white supremacists were protesting the decision made by the city of Charlottesville to remove the statue of Robert E. Lee who was a Confederate general.
As pictures and videos flooded the internet, a twitter account known as ‘Yes, You’re Racist’ is publicly outing those who attended the rally.
The goal of the account is to put a name to the faces that were there at the white nationalist protest.
The user of the account also asked their followers to provide the names and social media profiles of anyone they knew or recognized from the protests.
On Twitter, the caption read: ‘if you recognize any of the Nazis marching in Charlottesville, send me their names/profiles and I’ll make them famous. #GoodNightAltRight.’
So far, nine people have been outed by the Twitter account and one of those protesters is named Cole White.
According to the Twitter account, Cole White is a cook at a popular hot dog chain in California (Top Dog) and was the first person to be named. He has since been fired from his position.
