If you are like I am, you hate hate speech. But should we just look the other way, or should we actively block that kind of talk or writing?
The whole thing has me feeling a little sorry for Mark Zuckerberg these days.
Wait, what? Mark Zuckerberg, the emotionless guy whose Facebook has a creepy knowledge of what I’ve just shopped for? Mark Zuckerberg, whose Facebook was one of the tools the Russians used to post fake news and interfere with our election?
Yep, that Mark Zuckerberg.
Whatever you may think of Facebook, I do think they’re trying. I’m just not sure they’re going about it the right way. They’re banning hateful people.
Some people would applaud this move.
I’m not sure I do. And that makes me feel sorry for Mark Zuckerberg, because, despite his efforts, I still am not happy with what Facebook is doing about this issue.
When is banning hate speech just censorship?
