Facebook has been facing scathing criticism as of late regarding their murky and unacceptably unpredictable reaction to hate-filled ideas appearing on their site.
While the social media giant has vowed to crack down on “fake news”, a smoke screen for the censorship of non-globalist and non-leftists views, they have also come under fire from various organizations for their continued ignorance to the hate speech that occurs on the platform every day. Unfortunately, in Facebook’s renewed effort to combat the vile and uncouth denizens of prejudice that dot their wed-based landscape, they seem to be playing favorites, constituting a deep misunderstanding of their stated purpose.
“The way in which Facebook polices content on its network is under scrutiny again after it was revealed that a post in which a user called for white women to be ‘hunted and killed’ was deemed to not be a violation of community standards.
“’White women should be hunted and killed then we won’t get white babies who think the(y) own the world,’ the user posted.
“When the post was reported by another user for ‘hate speech,’ Facebook responded with the message, ‘We reviewed the comment you reported for displaying hate speech and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.’
“Meanwhile, posts by Christians that simply state bible passages in discussions about homosexuality are being removed, while pages devoted to showing grisly mock images of President Trump being assassinated are not taken down.”
Facebook’s live streaming service has also come under fire in recent weeks, as reprehensible acts of torture and rape have been streamed to the public en masse with no immediate action from social media most complex system. This has led many to believe that Facebook should be held accountable for the broadcasting service which they are providing, similar to that of television or radio.
