A mother has taken to Twitter to create awareness and warn other parents after she noticed how social media and vloggers are being gradually turning white teens into white supremacists.
Joanna Schroeder, a writer, said she monitors her son’s social media account and with time, she realized there seems to be a propaganda to turn white boys into racist, sexist, homophobic young men.
She said: “It’s a system I believe is purposefully created to disillusion white boys away from progressive/liberal perspectives.”
She revealed the gradual steps taken to turn good boys from “progressive or moderate families” into men lacking empathy. She then went on to tell other parents how they can notice the signs in their boys and what can be done to steer the boys in the right path.
She, however, warned parents that shaming their sons who have picked up these harmful behaviours online will be counterproductive.
Joanna’s thread has gone viral and elicited different reactions. While some applauded her parenting skills, some criticized her for stalking her son’s online activities and not letting him be independent.
