I was asked to comment on the Judge Mabel Jansen expressing racist views on social media by Roland Mpofu of the Sunday Independent. I love teaching people more about the online disinhibition effect. My comments here are:
“They have little inhibition. When we’re online, we cannot see the unspoken cues that people make, such as racist remarks or huge behaviour generalisations.
“The person I’m talking to will change their facial expression, like raise their eyebrows or frown at me immediately.”
