High among the growing number of social media and internet-related challenges facing contemporary youth is that of hate speech. In this essay, Kaz Ross turns a spotlight on this viral trend, one that feeds on "fear, hopelessness, anger, indignation and other heightened emotions", and uses a variety of media forms to "alienate, threaten, ridicule or even eliminate targets".
