Is ethnicity an advantage online? In my honest opinion, I do not think there is any advantage when your a different ethnicity online. However, if there is any advantage to it, I think it does help people connecting with others that have the same ethnicity. Some people are scared to tell people there ethnicity because they are afraid that people will make judge them harshly. That is one reason why people create fake identities online and is also why we have that problem of “don’t believe what you read on the internet.” The main reason that social media websites were created is so you could have your own identity and see others. Now that people are making fake identities it makes it harder for people to connect with the people they want to connect with so that is why I think it isn’t an advantage for people with different ethnicities.
