“Marginalized or vulnerable groups include, but are not limited to, groups based on their actual and perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability. These include victims of a major violent event and their families.”

It’s the next part that’s alarming:

“While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such attacks of hate.”

Like other online platforms, Reddit has a set of rules that are supposedly meant to control “hate speech”. However, it appears that the platform considers that only some people are allowed to have such protections. Someone who happens to be born into a group that is a “majority” group, isn’t protected by Reddit’s hate-based rules.

Many will likely take this to mean that, at least with the section related to “race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity,” that Reddit could allow discrimination or “hate” against white people in areas where they are the majority. However, Reddit doesn’t make clear whether this is country-specific and would apply the same way in most countries where white people, for example, are in the minority.

While many platforms have come up with “hate speech” policies in recent times, with rules against discrimination against race taking center stage, Reddit appears to be the only major platform that is saying its hate speech rules don’t apply fairly to all users – and perhaps more shockingly, without going into the details of how they determine that.

Isn’t that the way it’s been for years anyhow?

You are allowed to pick on and make fun of: whites, Christians (especially Catholic priests), heterosexuals, males, dead white historical Europeans, our founding fathers, capitalism, patriarchal, creationist, or American exceptionalist ideas.

I knew when the hate crimes were added, that it was just a matter of time that certain speech would also be classified as a hate crime. And here we are.

There is a court battle going on between prager U and google/facebook/etc so it will clarify if they are sharing forums or producers. If they are producers (like a newspaper for example) they can control 100% of the content but can be held legally liable for any bad shit. (how to build a bomb etc)
With a forum, it has 1st amendment rights and they cannot be held liable for someone putting bobm stuff on the site, BUT, they cannot change or remove content due to the 1st.

The issue is, these left wing cocksuckers want it both ways.
They want to 100% control whatever is posted/displayed, BUT, they don't want legal liability for anything posted.

PragerU is getting the court to decide one or the other, you can't have it both ways.

Depending on how that goes, it should help right wing posters/ads/etc.
