I don't know what to think.
4chan has been talking like niggers ever since this shithole was founded, and I have always been 100% against it, because what starts as ironic, devolves into post-ironic, then into normalcy.
And here is the result, bunch of niggerbrained people post here thinking they're in good company (which they are, in a sense).
Therefore, I see the opposite happening as maybe a good impact to offset this.
Instead of niggerfying our place, we're 4channizing other places
Cancerous? Definitely. I respect rules 1 & 2 to this day, despite being non-canonical.
But it's still an interesting phenomenon to watch. 4 years ago (maybe more, I'm getting old), when 4chan started using the word "based", which is niggerspeak to begin with, we could see dozens and dozens of newspaper articles calling it nazi dogwhistle, white supremacist lingo, what-have-you, because it came from 4chan.
But it gradually became more and more used by edgy people, and now, suddenly, EVERYONE says it. I'm seeing all sorts of normalfags, trans-flag-bearing "people", speedrunners, you name it. They're all saying "based" all the time now.
Same happens with lots of icons coming from here, smug pepe to me officially "died" when Katy Perry posted it, but the process happens on many fronts; he went from Nazi icon to everyone loving le epic green charming frog.
There is no conclusion to my diatribe, let it be known I hate brown people and that it is very hard to define where channer culture begins/ends, or whether this spread, in 2022, is still a cultural threat to imageboards.
It's certainly cringe to see 12yos yelling BASED or saying "it's a meme, you dip", but oh well, everything has its life-cycle, Evanescence and Linkin Park have outlived the cringe and gone back to nostalgic/cool for many people.
