Facebook treats everyone equally. Leftists wants whites and men to be at the bottom of the hierarchy.
A new misleading article is going viral on leftist and liberal-leaning social-political websites. ProPublica reports that white men are a protected class on Facebook, and that criticism of white men is considered hate speech.
Sure enough, hateful attacks against white men are considered hate speech and subject to possible deletion–just as a group of liberals have long said they wanted social media to take a harder stand on hate speech. So, too, are attacks on black men, white women, black women, Asian men, Asian women, Hispanic men, Hispanic women, Muslim men, and Muslim women considered hate speech.
Attacks on any such ethnic-gender (or religion) combination group are hate speech. ProPublica’s problem and that of those sharing the article is that they don’t want whites or men to have equal rights.
There’s nothing confusing in Facebook’s position. It’s spelled out in black and white–literally–in the slides:
How did a policy of policing hate speech impartially, without favor, turn into allegations of pro-white bias?
