’Race-blind’ hate speech policy being changed by Facebook

Facebook announced it would be revising its systems to prioritize blocking slurs against Black people, gays and other groups historically targeted by vitriol, and that it would no longer automatically filter out barbs aimed broadly at whites, men or Americans. This change is a shift from the social network’s ethnicity and gender-neutral system that removed anti-white comments and posts.

"Facebook puts a higher priority on detecting and deleting racist slurs and hate speech against Black people, Muslims, Jews, the LGBTQ community and people of more than one race than on statements such as “White people are ------” and “Men are pigs.”" Ah yes, the whole engage in racism to fight racism scheme. These people engage in this nonsense, and then act shocked when racial, etc strife worsens. Edit: I had to edit the quote to get past the app censor.

Because it not hate speech if it's not uttered against a black person? From the suff I've seen I would conclude that black people are the most racist race... in America and in Africa

I'm here on Newsvoice to allegedly hear unbiased and neutral news... I'm a little disappointed that they weren't able to find a single news agency willing to write an article condemning Facebook declaring loudly that men, cisgender people, and white people are deserving of hate and hate speech. Every article that they have found is gushing over how amazing it is that Facebook is now woke enough to hate the right people. Our society is going down the toilet.

Still waiting on a consistent definition of hate speech.
