People will never be as amazed as that first moment they get online and learn about the large amount of twelve-year-olds who have plundered their mother.

An Internet troll, if still not widely known, is a person who will only insults another person online. Unlike most racial prejudice, they are judging another person based upon the way they communicate online or the way they talk verbally over a microphone. Even without that knowledge they judge another person without mercy. Though what we may consider prejudice varies, it can be safely called a judgment made with only their first and often uninformed impression in mind. Prejudice is a great disaster to hit the online community. It is because of their ability to remain anonymous that their crimes can go unpunished, but not every act of prejudice can be considered a crime.

Steps can be taken to a truly equal world, but they are steps that must be fought for each and every time.

Whenever next on the Internet, please do refrain from plundering somebody else’s mother because that is prejudice.
