Clarence Page: Can ethnic hate be a mental illness?

In early April, the Anti-Defamation League offered some happy news about a very grim topic. It reported a "significant and encouraging decline" in anti-Semitic acts across America in recent years. Unfortunately, the new spirit of hope would not last long. Less than two weeks passed before a hate-motivated killing of three innocent people in Overland Park, Kan., on the Sunday before Passover. Police have charged Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Cross, a white supremacist from southwest Missouri with fatally shooting three people — including a 14-year-old boy — on Sunday, a day before Passover outside a Jewish community center and a Jewish senior center.

I have a challenge for you.
Go ask Google if there is anything that people should stop posting on social media sites. Just type in “things people need to stop posting on facebook,” or something to that effect.
Google does not come up short. In fact, the results are pretty overwhelming. You might not know it, but you’re probably breaking many unwritten rules of social media.
According to this list we’re not supposed to post:
– pregnancy updates
-milestones our children make
-medical conditions we or our children are experiencing
Pretty much anything about parenting is not kosher. In fact, if you’re a parent, you should probably just leave facebook altogether, according to this guy.
This one rules out:
-lengthy complaints about life
-complaining about your boss
-the frequent use of ellipses for some reason…
This one prohibits:
-emotions, specifically loving emotions directed at a significant other.
