Full description of the featured image for the post “Why It’s Incredibly Problematic to Call White Supremacists ‘Insane’”:
The title “Stop Calling White Supremacists ‘Insane'” appears at the top of the page. Underneath appears the bold text “When people say:” followed by four speech bubbles that say “Insane white supremacists,” “These KKK marches are crazy,” “The USA has gone mad,” and “Racism is a mental illness.”
Below that appears the bold text “What they are actually saying is:” followed by four speech bubbles that say “People with disabilities are abnormal; it’s an insult to be compared to them,” “People with mental health conditions are dangerous, violent, criminal,” “Racism is irrational; an abnormality; history, not current reality,” and “Racism is caused by individuals, not by systems of white supremacy.”
At the bottom of the graphic, the paper the words appear on emerges from a typewriter. Above the typewriter ribbon is the black text www. copyeditor. com with the red word “radical” inserted so that, edited, it reads www. radicalcopyeditor.com.
Note: Why does this page exist? Because folks who are blind and depend on screen readers can’t tell what’s in an image without a description, and an image like this one deserves a more thorough description than can be provided via alt text.
