1. A new campaign in Brazil is plastering billboards with racist Facebook comments. The point is not to expose anyone but to educate people that their words have a real impact. Would you want these billboards in your neighborhood?

2. Behind the project is the Criola group, a nonprofit that works to defend the rights of black women in Brazil. The group is using the location tag from Facebook posts then buying billboard space in their neighborhoods, but blurring out the names and photos of the commenters. "We omit names and faces of the authors because we have no intention of exposing anyone. We just want to educate people so that in future they think about the consequences before posting racist comments," the project says. Do you think this educates people or keeps the hate going?
