Define American, an organization that fights for immigration reform, has compiled a hilarious group of young people who are "Undocumented and Unafraid" to read what the haters have been saying about them and, finally, clap back.
When faced with some of the meanest the Internet has to offer, these folks have a thick skin. As REM's "Everybody Hurts" plays on, they debunk misinformation and roast the ignorance of both high profile tweeters (looking at you, Ann Coulter) and home-grown bigots.
(Warning: Bad ideas and worse grammar ahead.)
“While it's brought the world together, social media can also be incredibly divisive -- especially when it comes to important issues like immigration," Pulitzer prize-winning journalist and Define American founder Jose Antonio Vargas told MTV News regarding the inspiration for the project, launched prior to the organization's film festival later this month.
"Define American is always striving to highlight stories of immigrants and explore issues of identity in America, which is why we created this piece ahead of our Define American Film Festival," Vargas said.
The hope is that more and more people will be able to better understand and empathize with the modern American immigrant experience.
Vargas adds that just because people can say hurtful and ignorant things on the Internet, it doesn't mean that you can't use humor to challenge and (if we're being #optimistic) educate them.
