The struggle has never been so real as it is when it comes to the comment sections of articles.
We want to read the comments when we know we shouldn't and then we do it anyway because, at heart, we're all gluttons for punishment.
It seems like we will read the comments of an article about race regardless of what happened the last time we decided to scroll just a little too far. In fact, in the video, the better half of Eboni's mind already knows what to expect and attempts to save Eboni from a bout of depression.
But do we ever really learn? Eventually, Eboni's smart subconscious must look on while, against better judgement Eboni reads the comments anyway.
