As the Tyler Clementi Cyberbullying Trial Begins new evidence emerges about Clementi's racist views about his Indian room-mate:





Ravi and Clementi each formed simplistic impressions of the other online before they ever met in person.



Clementi had come out to his parents just three days before leaving for college in the fall of 2010. But he had long been active on gay online websites, including a pornographic site called Justforboys, where Ravi discovered a post from Clementi.



"Found out my roommate is gay," Ravi tweeted.



Clementi wrote his own friend on gChat, "I've started stalking my roommate..," and "I got an azn (Asian)."



He then forwarded a link to Ravi's Twitter account. Later, after meeting Ravi's Indian parents for the first time, Clementi messaged a friend "sooo Indian first gen americanish" and "defs owna dunkin" (Dunkin' Donuts).





Although Clementi may not have noticed the webcam that night, he did see Ravi's Twitter post the next day. Yet his chats with friend Hannah Yang indicate that he was largely dismissive of the incident:



Yang: I would feel seriously violated



Clementi: like wtf [what] did he think was gonna happen….

Oh yah I gotcha

When I first read the tweet I defs felt violated

But then When I rememberd what actually happened

Idk [I don't know]

Doesn't seem soooo bad lol



Yang: You guys really need to talk…

Clementi: hahaha

I guess

But its not like he left the cam on or recorded or anything

He just like took a five sec peep lol



He also sought feedback from the online community at Justusboys.

"I feel like the only thing the school might do is find me another roommate, probably with me moving out .. and I'd probably just end up with somebody worse than him ... I mean aside from being an a**hole from time to time, he's a pretty decent roommate," Clementi wrote in his post.



Clementi's mixed reaction to the incident and Ravi presents a critical obstacle for the prosecution.

Had Clementi not taken his life in such tragic circumstances, would Ravi have a case against Clementi for racist cyberbullying?

Exactly.



Who cares about racism if a tragic suicide can be turned into a gay 'cause celebre'

Did Clementi illegally wiretap his roommate, or obstruct justice to hide that crime?

Is it illegal wiretapping in your own room?



Clementi didn't seem too bothered:



Clementi: hahaha



I guess

Knowing how strongly you feel about racial stereotyping and how much you enjoy comparisons with the KKK, I'm sure you were outraged by these comments from Clementi:



Clementi wrote his own friend on gChat, "I've started stalking my roommate..," and "I got an azn (Asian)."



He then forwarded a link to Ravi's Twitter account. Later, after meeting Ravi's Indian parents for the first time, Clementi messaged a friend "sooo Indian first gen americanish" and "defs owna dunkin" (Dunkin' Donuts).
