"A high school where some students played the Internet game "Beat the Jew" will receive a new tolerance curriculum, officials said.

"The annoucement comes five months after officials a La Quinta High School in Riverside County disciplined students for playing the game.

"The game, which gathered participants via Facebook, is a complicated contest of tag, in which 'Jews' are taken, blindfolded, by car to a place off campus and have to make their way back to base while pursued by 'Nazis.

"Organizers had put up a Facebook page announcing the game that was 'friended' by some 40 students, of which seven participated."

"The letter reads: 'Although you have attended the world's best communication skills courses you have been most successful in growing great hatred and hostility between you and Muslims around the world, but seriously this time you have caused an almost unrepairable [sic] damage.' 

"The letter demanded not only that the pages are reinstated but that new rules are introduced which make it a violation of Facebook's terms to post anti-Islamic comments."

"For the most part, I previously thought about internet racism as being fueled by anonymity. Take a look at the comments sections of news sites.

"But then came the popularity of social media sites like myspace and Facebook and twitter. Which blows my 'anonymity' theory right out of the water. There’s been a lot of racist tweeting going on, from politicians to has-been celebrities to sportswriters. Facebook is a known site for college racists."
