Tolerance Ads To Show Up In Racist Yahoo Groups

from the interesting-approach dept

Yahoo has agreed to give a bunch of ad space to a tolerance group, and have those ads targeted towards people searching for hate groups or using hate group “clubs” on Yahoo’s site. While it’s an interesting use of targeting, I doubt those ads will be effective. In fact, (as evidenced by the quote from one white supremicist in the article) they seem to take this as evidence that the world is out to get them with these sorts of “subliminal” messages (yes, he seems to think they’re subliminal). It suggests we’re not dealing with the best and brightest, but I guess that’s not a big surprise to most folks.
