YouAreWhatYouHate:Relies too much on the caption: You Are What You Hate get usage counts

Destruction!!!!!
This is my first time starting a discussion on image pickin, so if I make a mistake, forgive me.

Anyway, I think the image relies too much on the caption since I didn't know that as a kkk suit, until I read the caption, can anyone find an image that is more indicative and doesn't rely too much on the caption?

Lover of masks.
Fixed the thing for you.

You needed to put YouAreWhatYouHate in the box next to the word "Article" and not the one labeled "Discussion Title".

I am neutral on this one.
Please.
I don't think this relies too much on the caption, but if there's a version out there without the motion blur I'd support swapping them.

[up] I'd go along with that.

Agreement with Willbyr.
How about this?

[up] I like it...the only potential issue is that some people might gripe about the white shirt being behind the text on the screen, making it a little hard to read.

[up] I agree, it's a good example, but the text is too small for people to get how the image fits the trope for first-time readers

Can we get a different shot from that scene where the text is a little clearer?

What's the difference between this and Boomerang Bigot? It seems to me that this trope is about secretly, maybe even unknowingly being what you hate.

I think this needs a two-picture arrangement. A guy shouting homophobic slurs in one panel, then kissing another guy in the second, or something like that.
Do we want to do anything here?

Not sure...I'm neutral on the current pic.
I do think this needs a better image. With the current one there is absolutely zero distinction with Boomerang Bigot, although they're very clearly separate tropes.

No other thoughts on this?

Don't think so, clock should be set for this.

Clock is ticking.

I like the current pic but I wish it was made clear the hood that is in his hand.

I don't mind the replacement image. Honestly, did any of you have trouble reading it? Even if you did does no one else have a magnify key? I don't see a problem with the current image either, if there was an issue to be had its might be confusion with boomerang bigot.

You are what you hate is someone who either A)hides what they are, or B) does not know, A before shot in his hood could help. Rip it from youtube.

Clock's up; locking for inactivity/lack of consensus. No action is to be taken based on this thread.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
