A brilliant social experiment was done in Lithuania where a new migrant to the country has a Facebook post that is ladened with racist themes targeted directly at him.

It is written in Lithuanian so he asks a local to translate it for him into English.

It’s fascinating to see how people who are reading someone else’s words are affected by racism and how it says to me that the vast majority of us are not that way inclined, which obviousky is brilliant.

My favourite part of the video is when one gentleman, upon reading the racist post, says “there’s no like useful information here for you”. I don’t think you could define racism better
